—Marie Antoinette (2006)

 Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

wishiwould said: Okay this might seem out of nowhere, but I like had this dream that Yaya DaCosta was set to play Emma in a new adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, and I thought you would enjoy that!

That would be so AMAZING!!

I  want to see Yaya in more period films.

This is the Deliverance Creek trailer

HMMMM

10PM
Actress Yaani King will be playing Kessie in Lifetime’s upcoming TV movie Deliverance Creek.
Yaani is listed sixth on the film’s IMDb page. I feel like this may turn out to be another Hannah’s Law.

Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Thank you.

I will always re-blog this

Hence why they’re called cowBOY. “Boy” was a common title/nickname for men of color (usually black men) used as a way to demean and infantilize them.
