Araminta Ross became a “slave for hire” at the age of 5. She did domestic work, field work, cared for children. She once said that one of her mistresses would savagely whip her almost every day, first thing in the AM. As a result, she would put on “all the thick clothes she could” to protect her body from the blows. When she was teenager, she stood before an overseer who was in pursuit of another slave. He took a lead weight & crashed it on her head. She was deeply wounded. She said that the blow “broke her skull.” She was carried back bleeding. She had no bed. They lay her on the floor. She was sent back to her parents who thought she would die. She survived. She went on to become Harriet Tubman. She freed slaves daringly & without fear. This is the person who [Russell Simmons] laughed at.

Blogger “Prison Culture” response to Russell Simmons parody video “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape”.

Respect Harriet’s legacy and the rebuke the attempts to make light of the sexual violence Black women experienced during slavery.

The Flash - Grant Gustin on set as Barry Allen & Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West

FYI that is not Jesse L. Martin (aka Detective West) with Grant.  That is Michasha Armstrong.

"When a young person comes up to me and says they pursued something because of something I did, that I had an influence on their thinking. That’s a very nice feeling."

Happy 79th Birthday to legendary television, film & stage actress and singer Diahann Carroll, born Carol Diann Johnson (July 17, 1935)
