The Original Betty Boop, Esther Jones aka Baby Esther.
Esther Jones, known by her stage name, "Baby Esther," was a African American singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at the The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones' 'baby' singing style for a recording of "I Wanna Be Loved By You." Jones' style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.

Her stage persona was stolen by Helen Kane and the Betty Boop we know today was born

The “Ebony Venus” and the “Bronze Apollo" - Josephine Baker and the Russian-born French ballet legend, Serge Lifar, on the Lido beach in Venice, 1930s. Ms. Baker talked about this day in "Josephine," the biography she wrote with her former husband, Jo Bouillon, which was published in 1976, one year after her death.

“We had had a wonderful time together on the beach in Venice during my Italian tour. I loved to hear Serge speak. He was more entertaining than all the pigeons in St. Mark’s Square. I’d like to have been Picasso in order to sketch him… Actually, he knew Picasso, as well as those who had made me the “ebony Venus” and named him the “bronze Apollo.” Paris had welcomed him from the East two years before I arrived from the West. There on the sun-drenched sand, intoxicated with the sheer joy of motion, we danced. What a curious pas de deux – the star dancer of the Paris Opera and a colored entertainer swaying together in bathing suits on the Lido beach.” Photo: Hotel des Ventes, Geneve.

Obama Sits Inside Rosa Parks Bus/ When History meets History

Kweeped from by paprika971 1202 days ago

President Barack Obama sat Wednesday for a moment inside the Montgomery, Ala., city bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. The bus is currently housed at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

Obama later reflected on the moment at a fundraiser in suburban Detroit. "I just sat in there for a moment and pondered the courage and tenacity that is part of our very recent history but is also part of that long line of folks who sometimes are nameless, often times didn't make the history books, but who constantly insisted on their dignity, their share of the American dream," he said, according to a White House pool report.

Une quenelle en direct des champs de canne à sucre !

À savoir : les bouteilles qui sont aujourd'hui en matière plastique peuvent être fabriquées à base de canne à sucre mais cela serait un manque à gagner pour les dealers de pétrole !

Je ne souhaite m'associer à rien de ce qui concerne Dieudonné, mais j'avoue que celle ci est drôle.

"Exposé au Salon des Indépendants, il souleva l'intérêt des critiques, jusqu'au jour où fut démontré que l'auteur était Lolo, l'âne du peintre, à qui il avait attaché un pinceau à la queue." "Ce tableau est un double canular.
"Joachim-Raphaël BORONALI est un pseudonyme inventé par Roland DORGELES et ses amis dont le nom est l'anagramme de Aliboron. En effet, les complices ont trempé alternativement la queue de l'âne dans différents pots de peinture, puis donné des feuilles de tabac et des carottes afin qu'il remue la queue sur la toile placée près de sa croupe."

Le but était de ridiculiser l'art contemporain.. -les impressionistes, à l'époque (1910)- ça a fait un scandale quand la supercherie a été découverte.

Cependant, il a été démontré que l'âne seul n'a pu tout créer : l'ensemble autour de la ligne d'horizon , ou les zones régulières. Donc supercherie là aussi" Photo de l'âne :
