itsdlovely A big thanks to @flashbacksummer for her great interview series on the need for more racial diversity in the vintage community, and to @theblackpinup @blackpinupmodels
@norafinds and @tinyangrycrafts for their honest answers.
I also wanted to celebrate the some of the people, in addition to these ladies, that are making nonwhite vintage images/themes/history/whatever more visible: @ladybugpinup and her "Pinup de Pura Cepa" series showing Dominican pinups of all shades with traditional props; @shienlee/@dancesofvice and their 1930s Shanghai parties (the next one is June 19!), and @nichellegainer and her @vintageblackglamour book. More on the blog. Let me know who or what I'm missing in the comments!

slimblac #ElHajjMalikElShabazz from @vintageblackglamour - Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska 90 years ago today in 1925. He would later change his name to El-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz. In this photo from March 1964, he is shown with Muhammad Ali outside of the Trans-Lux Newsreel Theater in New York City after a screening of a film about Mr. Ali’s title fight with Sonny Liston.

vintageblackglamour The brilliant, beautiful playwright Lorraine Hansberry was born 85 years ago today in Chicago, Illinois. This photo was taken by Gordon Parks as she chatted with the pianist at a party in honor of her now iconic play "A Raisin in the Sun"’ at the legendary Manhattan restaurant, Sardi’s in March 1959.
