one of my fav scenes to be honest, cause lawd knws if they allowed black folks in the league maaaaaaan listen, alot of what ifs possiblities 

This film, “A League of Their Own” dedicates so many scenes to issues like sexism.

Yet, blink too fast and you’ll miss this short scene…the one that shows how Black women were barred from the league.

The Black woman is supposed to represent Mamie “Peanut” Johnson (who actually did try out for the league). She wasn’t allowed to play and went on to be one of the few women to play with men in the Negro League. 

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A FILM ABOUT JOHNSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN WHO PLAYED FOR THE NEGRO LEAGUE! But Hollywood …

The summary would actually make a great period film! But they’d have to come up with a different name. I’m going to buy it and read it. 

Thanks for the recommendation!! 

Beverly Jenkins does a lot of period piece romance novels with amazing black heroines and awesome storylines.  All her stories should be movies.

(Particularly Destiny’s ranch stories and the second book, Destiny’s surrender.  An unapologetic black woman about her sexuality and about what she did for a living and just everything.

Ugh, I LOVE HER BOOKS.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE LAST DESTINY BOOK BECAUSE BLACK FEMALE PIRATE!

-lies in a puddle crying over books I love.-

Period book suggestions are falling into my lap!!

Thanks. I love reading and Black people in period settings so this is perfect.

If any of you have other suggestions let me know! :)
