Enolia McMillan (1904-2006)
was the first female president of the NAACP (National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People). She was an influential civil rights activist
and community leader.
She started her career as a teacher, and began to document
and fight against the racially-biased educational system. She subsequently
became the President of the Maryland State Colored Teachers’ Association. She
held the position of the NAACP’s leader for 6 years, and was heavily involved
in the association’s efforts.
it’s the 15 year anniversary of this movie (Real Women Have Curves) starring 17-year-old America Ferrera and i just want to remind everyone that this (i think… if i remember right) is a really good bopo movie if you haven’t seen it yet!
lol and for anyone who’s gonna say “all women are real women” yes i agree with u but still watch this movie
Years ago, I did this sketch of Basadenyaa (or ‘Gecko Girl’), a superhero from the cartoons in my Theonite Series (so, a fictional character from my own fictional universe).
In keeping with the reversed racial hierarchies in the world of Theonite, most of Duna’s classic superheroes are black women (with the occasional token man or non-black woman allowed into the pantheon). Within that pool of iconic heroes, Basadenyaa is the obvious Spiderman analogue–the snarky, put-upon nerd with a heart of gold, who can scale walls and do lots of cool acrobatics. Younger and more accessible than her godlike contemporaries, Basadenyaa is the favorite hero children all over Duna, including Daniel Thundyil, and Kente Ekwenzi, who first appears doodling her while he is supposed to be working.
The method of Photoshop coloring I was using back when I drew this doesn’t work very well, and the place-holder symbol on her chest is completely wrong. Also, she’s supposed to have goggles in the original design that I can’t find (honestly, Kente’s stupid drawings are probably better than this one), but I thought I would post it anyway, just for fun.
