BGF Fly Girls :: This morning we feel inspired by the unnamed Fly Queens from Nashville who are down in MO, peacefully protesting. The images are akin to some photos of Vintage Fly Girls from the 1970s that we will share today. Mainstream media is void of images like this, so we are grateful for independent media outlets and individuals taking to social media to share what is happening on the ground in Missouri. #Black #Girl #Fly #Magazine #BlackGirlFly #BlackGirlFlyMag #PeacefulProtest #FlyGirls #Organizing #JusticeforMike #MikeBrown #Ferguson #Missouri #DontShoot #Nashville #BlackGirlsRock #UrbanPsychologist #ToHarrietwithLove #CurlsandCouture
"Once, when we were playing at the Apollo, Holiday was working a block away at the Harlem Opera House. Some of us went over between shows to catch her, and afterwards we went backstage. I did something then, and I still don’t know if it was the right thing to do - I asked her for her autograph." -Ella Fitzgerald
"Nobody wants to be dancing to political songs. Every bit of music out there that’s making it into the mainstream is really about nothing. I wanted to see if I could write songs about something important and make it sound like nothing. And it kind of worked."
