Politeon the Green Tailed Sunmoose, had a not very dullcolored tail.
And if you never saw it, you wouldn’t say “it glows.”
All of the other mooses, never ever called him names, they always let good Politeon, join in their Moosey games.
Then one clear Easter night a bunny came to say: Politeon with your tail so light, will you help paint eggs tonight?
Then all the mooses loathed him, as they shouted out with hate: Politeon the Green Tailed Sunmoose, you’ll go down in infamy.
Cherubim are fluffy spheres with thousands of eyes and multitudes of wings. I read that in a Scifi book. And I think it’s pretty cool.
African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.
I think it’s so easy to forget that we, WOC, were there in history too.
The flapper movement was originally started by WOC, and that was part of the reason why it was so scandalous for white women to be flappers at first—because they were dressing and acting line WOC. But of course you’ll never see that in a high school textbook.
I will reblog again for commentary.
Also think about it like this. I am 36 years old. THIRTY SIX and beyond Josephine Baker prior to these images I had never seen Jazz Age WOC.
Let that sink in.
36 years old and it wasn’t necessarily for lack of effort.
I JUST WANT TO MEET A GUY ON TUMBLR WHO IS FUNNY AND IN MY FANDOMS AND MY AGE AND HAPPENS TO LIVE NEARBY SO WE CAN MEET UP THEN BECOME REALLY CLOSE THEN GET MARRIED AND HUNT TOGETHER AND SOLVE CRIMES AND TRAVEL THROUGH SPACE AND TIME IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK!?
