Normal Vintage Black Glamour
vintageblackglamour The positively splendid Teddy Pendergrass was born 65 years ago today in Philadelphia. I've always had a hard time settling on a photo of Mr. Pendergrass for VBG (online) - but that won't be a problem for the men's book....

Happy 73rd Birthday to the One and the ONLY Aretha Franklin!! This photo (by Walter Iooss) was taken in the year I was born in the city I was born: Newark, NJ in 1969. I was honored (thrilled!) when the legendary poet Nikki Giovanni granted me permission to share an excerpt of her 1970 poem, 'Poem for Aretha" in my book and I'd like to share a bit of it for you here in tribute to Ms. Franklin:
"she is undoubtedly the one person who put everyone on
notice
she revived johnny ace and remembered lil green aretha sings
"I say a little prayer” and dionne doesn’t
want to hear it anymore
aretha sings “money won’t change you”
but james can’t sing “respect” the advent
of Aretha pulled ray charles from marlboro country
and back into
the blues made nancy wilson
try one more time forced
dionne to make a choice (she opted for the movies)
and diana ross had to get an afro wig pushed every
Black singer into Blackness and negro entertainers
into negroness you couldn’t jive
when she said "you make me feel" #vintageblackglamour #vbgbook #vintage #ArethaFranklin #1960s

A gem from the VBG archives. It's a shot of Ms. Franklin rehearsing with the legendary dancer and choreographer Charles “Cholly” Atkins at a dance studio in 1961. Mr. Atkins (1913-2003) created the iconic dance moves of The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips and The Supremes’s famous “Stop! In the Name of Love” hand movement (!!!) The Alabama-born Mr. Atkins began his career as a vaudeville performer and was one half of the legendary dance duo Coles and Atkins with Honi Coles. In 1988, he shared a Tony Awards for choreographing the Broadway show, “Black and Blue.” Photo: Frank Driggs Collection/Getty Images. #vintageblackglamour #vbgbook #ArethaFranklin #ChollyAtkins #Motown #1960s #dance #choreographers
