Today we celebrate the birthday of another unsung hero in Jazz: bassist Wendell Marshall. He was a ubiquitous figure on the NYC jazz scene in the 1950's in particular. A cousin of bass master Jimmy Blanton, Wendell never gained much popularity, but he was the consummate bassist and team player. Some of his best work can be heard on the many sessions he did on the Savoy label from the mid 50's. Young bassists can learn some important lessons from him. #jazz #jazzmaster #america #americanhistory #history #jazzhistory #blackmusic #blackhistory #africanamericanhistory #community #bass #jazzbass #music #blackhistory

On this date, Marjorie Stewart Joyner was born in 1896. She was an African American businesswoman and humanitarian.

Born in Monterey in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, she moved to Chicago as a child, studying cosmetology as a teenager. She became associated with the famous beauty expert Madam C.J. Walker who had been made famous by Josephine Baker's adoption of her products. Marjorie Stewart Joyner had a strong message that she carried throughout her life: Be proud of who you are and treat yourself as if you care. From this strong belief, she became an avid supporter of young men and women throughout her life. #BlackHistory is #AmericanHistory ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿

Black History Month: Fisk Jubilee Singers, introducing genuine black music to England.
The most celebrated black performers of the late nineteenth century were not black Britons but African Americans. The Fisk Jubilee Singers originated in Nashville, Tennessee, then in the early 1870s introduced the British public to black American gospel music, bringing new songs into British churches, including ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’. Their tour of Europe was one of the greatest musical events of the century.

When I first saw this video I felt some type of way but @andresogward is the greatest of his generation and unfortunately casual Boxing fans missed most of his greatness.

A Few of My Haircare Tips:
°Invest in satin scarfs and pullows.
°Don't use rubber bands super often on natural hair.Braided hairstyles are find but in natural hair it gets tangled and pulls out hair
°Make sure you get you dead ends cut because if not it's going to continue to break off and never grow
°Don't rinse your hair with hot water!Beginning use warm and rinse with cold water(Hot water dries your hair)
°Read the ingredients,make sure alcohol isn't the first ingredient or make sure it's not in there at all(dries hair out)
°Never forget to wear your scarf(Hair will break off if it rubs against fabic.Hair breaks faster than it grows)
°When your natural hair is out wash it every two -Three weeks
°On wash day,personally I don't use shampoo unless I had braids in or I have too much product in ny hair.Shampoo takes out the natural oils in you hair so this one is just preference.
°Don't do high ponytails You're brushing your edges to much.A few tines is okay but everyday is going to have you fucked up.
°Invest in protective styling.Braids,Weaves,Lace frontals.It allows you're hair to grow out and still be snatched and with some you can co-wash
°Invest different thpes of styling gel,and rollers. ~Mari🌙
