Music/Video Monday: Award Winning Lupita Nyong’o Braids Hair like a Boss

In this video Lupita talks about the classic black girl dilemma, where to get your hair done. I like that she took matters into her own hands. This video shows exactly why she is my best friend in my head.

I love every bit of this.

Can she be anymore down-to-earth and perfect?

those bantu knots are on point though!

you know she yankin the fuck out their hair

On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged. 

she’s so goddamned inspirational

this makes me want to cry

David Margolick on how Mad magazine’s 1960s anti-smoking crusade could have saved tobacco companies billions: http://nyr.kr/1rEl0c1

“The truly prescient invention was the ‘smoke simulator’: a cork-tipped Pyrex tube containing small amounts of water, which, like the metal rod, would be inserted into a cigarette. Once the cigarette was lit, the cork at one end of the tube (edible, of course) popped out, and the water inside became steam.”
