This here is the beautiful and talented Ms.Billie Holiday. She was a huge success at the Apollo Theater and is known to be one of the most influential jazz artists of all time!!!! U2 even recorded a song called "Angel in Harlem", as a tribute to the impact that she has made on jazz music. Ms.Holiday has six Grammy hall of fame awards and four albums on the "Grammy Best Historical Albums" list. Thank You Billie Holiday for showing us that the natural ability to be musically talented shouldn't be hindered by one's skin color nor by one's gender. #S2S #BlackHistoryMonth #influentialfemalevocalist #rockandrollhalloffame #jazzhalloffame

"Many patients were sent to the psychiatric hospital for not stepping off a sidewalk to let a white man pass by." An amazing story: Thousands of photos, letters, journals and patient records from the worlds's first African American psychiatric hospital were about to be destroyed. But #UT professor King Davis rescued them and created a digital archive. The collection offers a rare glimpse into what life was like for African Americans following the Civil War to the post-civil rights era. Visit www.utexas.edu this week to learn more.
