#BlackHistoryMonth #PhotoChallenge Day 2: Influential Female, Angela Davis. Davis grew up in Birmingham, AL, & after 4 childhood friends were killed in a church bombing, she began her quest in activism. After moving to Oakland, CA she aided began an organization aimed at ending the prison industrial complex. During that time she was also tried and acquitted in the involvement of the Marin County Courthouse hostile takeover, which resulted in the murder of a judge; & although Davis was heavily involved with the Black Panther Party movement, she was never a member.

Shelton Jackson Lee better known by Spike Lee is an African American film director, producer, writer, and actor. He own his very own production company 40 Acres and A Mule Filmworks, the production company has produced over 35 films since 1983. Including my favorite Spike Lee Joint's The autobiography of Malcom X, Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn and of course Love & Basketball. Spike Lee may not have been the first but he is definitely a great and there is not one other like him. If you haven't seen it watch the video of @Pharrell interviewing him, it is beyond inspiring. What is your favorite Spike Lee Joint? #ThankYou #BlackHistoryMonth #SayItLoudImBlackAndImProud

African Americans are usually@the subject of photos and fashion spreads but we often forget that the ones behind the camera are also a part of the magic that happens.

He was an iconic Black photographer whose works have graces the pages of Life and TIME, and he is most famous for his work on the shots he took for Life Magazine of the 1971 film "Shaft" #PayHomage #blackhistorymonth #blackhistorymonthphotochallange #Feb2
