vintageblackglamour This awesome shot of Billie Holiday skiing in Zurich, Switzerland was “The Week’s Best Photo” in Jet’s February 25, 1954 issue. With the blizzard due to hit the east coast in a few hours I won't be doing any skiing - but I will be making that face! #vintageblackglamour #vbgbook #vbg #BillieHoliday #snow #snowpocalypse #1950s 45min

mellowvibecandles When it comes to vintage beauty, I feel like Marilyn Monroe is always the focal point. What about all the beauties of our past? #vintageblackglamour Can you name them? 23h

This iconic image of the one and only Eartha Kitt appears in my book. It was taken by Moneta Sleet, Jr., the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ebony photographer, in 1956 at the opening of Roxanne's Dressmakng Shop in New York City, co-owned by Ms. Kitt. This is just one of the many treasures in Ebony's archives that is about to be put up for sale, as the company is struggling. Five million images are at stake. My fervent wish is for the collection to end up in the right hands - as in an entity that will place the correct value (treasure!) on the collection, treat it accordingly and make it available to the public. #vintageblackglamour #vbgbook #EarthaKitt #Ebony #vintage #history #1950s #BlackHistory

adamhymans This wintry-wtf weather means I'm staying in and having a nightcap with little Isabel and great-great-great granddaddy Warren. Lol-Deep set eyes are clearly a dominant trait on my mom's side... #Charleston #Philadelphia #Victorian #VintageBlackGlamour #BowTies #Mixies #Portrait #Lineage #Creole #Bourbon 3d
