HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVERYONE
I really enjoyed the Black History Month thread from last year and I thought that I would try to re-create this for 2014.
Today on Google you can find that they are celebrating Harriet Tubman. Who has one of the most interesting life stories you will ever read. I question whether I would even be here if it werent for her. Who knows how many of our family members have crossed paths with this amazing woman.
As for a contemporary person Id like to post about Lavern Cox, who I admire more and more everyday. Id love to see her speak some day.
She currently stars in Netflix's Orange is the New Black. Which is amazing. Check it out.Laverne Cox is an actress, producer and transgender advocate who made television history when she became the first African-American transgender woman to appear on an American reality show, with her appearance as a finalist on VH1's I Want to Work for Diddy. The show won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program.
Laverne’s popularity subsequently led her to star in, co-create and co-produce her own show called TRANSform Me, making her the first African-American trans woman to produce and star in her own television show. TRANSform Me was nominated for a GLAAD media award for Outstanding Reality Program.
