Nina Simone - Her musical style arose from a fusion of gospel and pop songs with classical music, in particular with influences from her first inspiration, Johann Sebastian Bach,and accompanied with her expressive jazz-like singing in her characteristic low tenor. She injected as much of her classical background into her music as possible to give it more depth and quality, as she felt that pop music was inferior to classical. / My Dad adored her voice and singing style.

Happy Birthday - Nina Simone | Feb 21
Nina Simone, c. 1965. Photo: Charles 'Teenie' Harris. It's amazing Whoopi or other Beautiful Brown Skin Actors were not tapped to play this talented woman in the upcoming move. Young and old those actors are out there.
Nina Simone would have turned 80 years old today Born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina, she changed her name to Nina Simone (“Nina” meaning “little one” and “Simone” after the actress Simone Signoret) after she began singing in bars early in her career, something her Methodist minister mother none too subtly referred to as “working in the fires of hell.” This photo I am sharing today is my favorite of Ms. Simone, a stunning shot by Pittsburgh photography icon Charles “Teenie” ...

Oft forgotten heroines on WW2 -Lumberjills of The Women's Timber Corps. Like the many other amazing heroines of their time, the ladies of the Women’s Timber Corps stepped into unconventional britches in order to keep the industry, and country, moving while the men were off at war.

Meet the Lumberjills: Lady Loggers of WWII: The Lumberjills were a crew of awesome outdoorsladies who pushed up their sleeves, pulled up their britches, and chopped wood on the U.K. countryside while men were at war. In 1942 these riveting Rosies were inaugurated into Brit forces as the Women’s Land Army and the Women’s Timber Corps.
Meet the Lumberjills: Badass Lady Loggers of WWII: Theyre strong. Theyre fierce. Theyre CARRYING GIANT LOGS WITH THEIR BARE HANDS. Look at these #women!

Silent movies were made throughout most of the 1920s. They were the best kinds of entertainment to a lot/ or most of the immigrants who didn’t know how to speak English. They made familiar themes so that anyone watching the movie could understand. They were available to anyone with a few cents to spare.

Boudoir Dolls: Relatively simple cloth bodies and painted faces, these fashionable flapper dolls became the rage during the 1920s-30s. Women would drape them around their bedrooms & personal spaces. They represented the style of the times & also the daydreams of the young women holed up in these rooms. Some cheeky flappers would carry their dolls out for a night on the town. More than just a fashion doll, they were dolls as fashion accessories!
