anonymous asked:

i just read this post about frank and jamia being #relationshipgoals and i am CRYING because jamia is such an amazing strong woman and i know that we don't know that much about her, but she has been there for the man that the public has seen have mental breakdowns, bare his soul in lyrics, and has been there to catch the fall of his many bandmates and help them get back on their feet. and she's still there, and frank writes her love songs, and he loves their kids and I'M BAWLING

yes, very true!!!!

📚Bessie Stringfield: Tales of the Talented Tenth, No. 2

Author & Illustrator: Joel Christian Gill

ReleaseDate: October 1st (Fulcrum Publishing)

Imagine a five-foot-two-inch-tall woman riding a Harley eight times across the continental United States. Now imagine she is black and is journeying across the country in the pre-Civil Rights era of the 1930s and ’40s. That is the amazing true story of Bessie Stringfield, the woman known today as The Motorcycle Queen of Miami and the first black woman to be inducted into the American Motorcyclist Association Hall of Fame and the Harley Davidson Hall of Fame. Stringfield was a pioneer in motorcycling during her lifetime; she rode as a civilian courier for the US military and founded the Iron Horse Motorcycle Club in Miami, all while confronting and overcoming Jim Crow in every ride.

i can’t believe that they saw a japanese story they wanted to tell so they went “let’s pioneer ridiculously advanced and horrifying expensive cgi technology so we can make this white actress look japanese” and it never occurred to them to just….. hire….. a japanese woman…. like nature’s already done the cgi for you buddy

I’m inspired by women every day who are doing different things. One of my inspirations is Lee Miller, the New York model turned photographer turned war correspondent. I didn’t base my character on her in any way, but she’s an inspiration to me. She was the first female embedded war correspondent who shot and wrote during the second World War and was there for the liberation of Paris. I’ve always loved Lee Miller’s photography. I love women like that who are ahead of the curve and fighting for something they believe in.
