African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.
I think it’s so easy to forget that we, WOC, were there in history too.
The flapper movement was originally started by WOC, and that was part of the reason why it was so scandalous for white women to be flappers at first—because they were dressing and acting line WOC. But of course you’ll never see that in a high school textbook.
I will reblog again for commentary.
Also think about it like this. I am 36 years old. THIRTY SIX and beyond Josephine Baker prior to these images I had never seen Jazz Age WOC.
Let that sink in.
36 years old and it wasn’t necessarily for lack of effort.
I never knew this. I think I’ll watch “Runnin’ Wild”.
who is this brilliant man
THIS is perfect! Where is this from?!
Who is this guy?
His name is Jaque Fresco and he is one of the most bad ass old men on the planet! He is an inventor and an engineer and he even has his own community in Florida called The Venus Project. He also gives great talks (which he curses in and it’s hilarious) and they’re on youtube.
VIVA JACQUE FRESCO!!!
My mom didn’t read the directions.
