Hey White People: A Kinda Awkward Note to America by #Ferguson Kids by F…
Within Our Gates (1920) - Oscar Micheaux Silent Film
As most you may realize by my post and tweets, I am focused on the events surrounding the shooting of unarmed teenager #MichaelBrown and the Militaristic response to peaceful protests by the law enforcement by police in #Ferguson MO. Please join me in this quest for #justiceforMichaelBrown , and not let this be swept under the rug. Police must be held accountable for their actions just like anyone else. Black people deserve #Dignity and the same #Justice and #protections under the law as guaranteed by the Constitution. Take to your #Facebook , #twitter #Tumblr and any other social network you are on and join me in this …. and just so you know I’m #SickoftheBullShit
Lauren Bacall, the actress whose provocative glamour elevated her to stardom in Hollywood’s golden age and whose lasting mystique put her on a plateau in American culture that few stars reach, died on Tuesday in New York. She was 89. Her death was confirmed by her son Stephen Bogart.
“Her life speaks for itself,” Mr. Bogart said. “She lived a wonderful life, a magical life.” With an insinuating pose and a seductive, throaty voice — her simplest remark sounded like a jungle mating call, one critic said — Ms. Bacall shot to fame in 1944 with her first movie, Howard Hawks’s adaptation of the Ernest Hemingway novel “To Have and Have Not,” playing opposite Humphrey Bogart, who became her lover on the set and later her husband.
