Lois Curtis legacy of both her work and her advocacy is reflective of how art and activism from Black disabled people has played a vital role in furthering civil rights and social justice movements.

Thankful to the incredible Jennifer White-Johnson for contributing her artwork for my blog!

Did you know the desire to escape slavery, was once classified as a mental illness called Drapetomania in 1851.

Black people were considered mentally ill for refusing to live in bondage.

Retired librarian here! If you’re frustrated by news source paywalls check your public library website to see if the library subscribes & offers it FREE to all registered borrowers. My public library subscribes to NYT & WSJ. Just one of the many perks of having a library card.

A statement from the NBPA on the Orlando Magic’s recent political donations.
The DaVos family are big donors to the republican party...they just gave DeSantis a big check via the Orlando Magic basketball team and now the NBAPA is calling them out...GOOD JOB!

Black people did not learn agricultural skills via slavery. Let’s be VERY clear.

Black people already had the knowledge and skills!

It was colonists who had no idea how to grow crops and preserve food; so they exploited and bought Black people to put their skills to work in the Americas.

This is my second story about my experience with affirmative action. It also includes my personal brush with the issue of student loans. This time i'm not the person getting helped by either. I'm one alum selected to an important alumni Council of my graduate university, Cornell in Ithaca, NY.

I replied, "Let me put it this way, 'cool' as an expression and a concept was INVENTED by Black people." #blackmusicmonth #doowop #kpop #rocknroll

Last night at the GRAMMY Museum, I gave an impromptu lesson showing the throughline from #doowop to #kpop in the green room using my #graphicfacilitation skills on a mirror. One of the attendees jokingly asked, "Are you saying Blacks invented everything cool in America?" #blackmusic

Another reason to see and support the film is because it's a miracle it even exist at all. The director, Kenny Vance had his home destroyed in Hurricane Sandy and lost hundreds of hours of footage. #doowop #rocknroll #documentary #Hurricanes #HurricaneSandy #KennyVance

If you enjoy documentaries about the people behind-the-scenes in the music industry, films like Standing in the Shadows of Motown, the Wrecking Crew, and 20 Ft from Stardom, then you need to see this. Also, fans of #SpoutingClassics will really enjoy this too! #doowop #rocknroll #blackmusicmonth

It would’ve been interesting if it had deeply explored those racial & sociopolitical things. But that could be for another #documentary filmmaker. Because what this film aimed to be was just like its title suggests, “a love story.” On that account, it was a great success. #doowop #blackmusicmonth

It was interesting to see how those early #rocknroll shows were integrated. Kenny shares lots of footage from Alan Freed’s rock & roll concerts, and you see teens “from all five boroughs” laughing, dancing, & singing along to the music together. #AlanFreed #documentary #1950s #blackmusicmonth #NYC

A Big thumbs up to the new #doowop #documentary #film Heart & Soul: A Love Story! Though not an exhaustive history of the genre or deep sociopolitical exploration, the movie still gives you great insight into what doo-wop and its performers were about. #rocknroll #blackmusicmonth #FrankieLymon

Not sure how it happened, but Teen Vogue is one of the top media outlets. Their journalism is amazing.

Anybody can get on TV and tell white supremacists what they want to hear for an hour. Tucker Carlson's show told them who to attack. I wrote about its unique and under reported ability to give license to the very worst people in society.

While on this business trip in Indianapolis, we were pleasantly surprised to find an installation at the airport dedicated to the city's Black music tradition, called "Funky Naptown." - it's richer than most realize. #indianapolis #INDairport #blackmusichistory #naptown #soulmusic #soul

That reminds me, once upon a time, during the height of the pandemic, I wrote a tune dedicated to healthcare workers and performed it with a little help from my friends. #singfortheunsung #healthcare #unsungheroes (Alyssa always works with the Black Music Project - banjo vid)
"Sing for the Unsung" ft. Alyssa Harris, by Christopher Fuller of Griot's Eye. Official version. - YouTube

A visual song/story dedicated to healthcare workers. Featuring Alyssa Harris, Mariah Roberts, Andy Jackson, and Christopher Fuller (from Griot's Eye). Whethe...

Miss Angie Cuz I Said So @Neurofabulous11
Regardless of what I went through, we still have to have mad love to all of the #healthcare workers out there. Y'all are loved and appreciated. 💜♾️ Let's show them our appreciation. 💯👏 #thankyou 🤗

So this just happened: In honor of passing 1k followers, we thank @cbouzy for creating @Spoutible and giving us a platform to find an engaged (& growing) audience.

2 years on Twitter = 200 followers.

2 months on Spoutible = 1k.

And THANK YOU to everyone who follows us! Please share!

We just hit 666 followers; time to post about the man who legendarily "went down to the crossroads." How did Robert Johnson get good quickly? The devil had nothing to do with it. No disrespect to Allen Iverson, but he got good the same way you get to Carnegie Hall, "practice, practice, practice."

Very sad news. Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of David "Trugoy" Jolicoeur. Trugoy was a founding member of one of the most creative groups in hip-hop, De La Soul. Rest In Eternal Peace.

Quincy is feeling left out, so I’m sharing his puppy photos. On February 9, he turns one years old. As a puppy, he declared he was running for president. I’m biased, but I would vote for him.

In '49 a racist mob attacked his concert in Peekskill, NY, for a multiracial crowd while state police stood by. He responded, “I’m going to sing wherever the people want me to sing...and I won’t be frightened by crosses burning in Peekskill or anywhere else.”

Can you name him? #BlackHistoryMonth

I love reading! In memory of my eldest sister, who taught me to read at the age of four, my book projects are complete. Added 15 of my favorite book titles (and one play) on my stair risers and 16 floating frames with book covers on the walls. #books #Reading
