djladycherry Today in Black History I celebrate Nichelle Nichols! Did you know?? It was Dr. Martin Luther King, who persuaded Nichelle Nichols to stay on the show. She says, "I met Dr. King at a fundraiser and he told me that I was one of the most important people in his family. That they watched Star Trek and that I was a role model and their hero. And I said I said I was very proud of that and that was very nice, and then I told him that I was [considering] leaving the show, and he said abruptly - 'You can not! You absolutely must not. Do you know that you have the first non-stereotypical role on television? You're a first. This is not a female role. This is not a black role. This is a quality role, and this is an equal role, and it is in a command position. You have to carry on, because not only do little black children and do women see you and aspire and do you have meaning for them, but everyone else sees us for the first time the way we are supposed to be - on an equal basis, and on a level of dignity and authority and with the highest of qualifications.'" #BlackHistory #StarTrek #TrekDays #Celebrate #HonorThyGreats #Amazing @Tyrese Let's do #VoltronFilmz Documentary honoring the Legends!

djladycherry Today in BLACK HISTORY we celebrate musical icon Ella Fitzgerald. Did you know, Across the country, even celebrity black musicians, regardless of popularity, were often limited to small nightclubs, having to enter through the back of the house. Similar treatment was common at restaurants and hotels?? Enter Marilyn Monroe

During the ‘50s, one of the most popular venues was Mocambo in Hollywood. Frank Sinatra made his Los Angeles debut at Mocambo in 1943, and it was frequented by the likes of Clark Gable, Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and Lana Turner.

Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of her biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, she tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life: “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt … she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. #BLACKHISTORY #Facts #Celebrate #Inspire #Teach #Love #Limitless #Focus #Achieve #Dream #Live #Legacy

djladycherry Today we celebrate the "Royal Peacock" Family owned, my cousin Carrie B. Cunningham founder of "The Royal Peacock" aka "The Beautiful Club" "Top-Hat" I'm obliged to give you some Black History of this historical establishment. The Royal Peacock, one of the few historical establishments still opened today, was first opened as a jazz club in 1938 as The Top Hat (“The Royal Peacock Atlanta) Vision for the club Started about 74 years Ago being the first club to feature several major artists including B.B. King, the Four Tops, The Tams, and the Atlanta born Gladys Knight. It also hosted several top billed performers such as Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Louis Armstrong, and Dizzy Gillespie. Advertising itself as “The Top Hat, Bringing Harlem to Atlanta Thursday and Friday nights,” it soon became the place to be frequent if you were a successful African American in Atlanta, And, had it not been for the club several musical acts that affected millions across the nation and even the world might never have been discovered. (a Look inside) At the time, Egyptian décor was extremely popular, which provided the inspiration behind the club’s new look. Peacock feathers lined the side of the building and could be seen from the street and the new club even catered to White’s on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. Dressed in tuxedos, flowing gowns and fancy heels, successful, people would strut their stuff to the sounds of blues, R&B and rock (“Sweet Auburn Avenue”). #BLACKHISTORY #ATLANTA #Celebrate 4w

djladycherry Name the athlete who was most significant in the area of Civil Rights? The question, the answer you will receive most likely is Jackie Robinson. There is no doubt of Jackie Robinson contribution in breaking down the color barrier in baseball, which in 1947 was America’s game at that time.
Joe Louis in many ways was as much of a pioneer, if not more so than Jackie Robinson. Consider the time frame. While Joe Louis was not the first African-American heavyweight champion, he was the first African-American athlete to garner support through the White community. This a full decade before Jackie Robinson appeared in a Brooklyn Dodgers uniform. #JoeLouis #RevoltTV #HappyBlackHistoryMonth #BoxingChamps @iamdiddy
