Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (December 25, 1745 – June 10, 1799) was a champion fencer, classical composer, virtuoso violinist, and conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris. He was mixed race born on the French owned Island of Guadeloupe. His mother a Senegalese slave and his father a French slave owner. His father brought him to France where he recieved his academic and music education. Saint-Georges' first compositions were a set of six string quartets. He also wrote 13 violin concertos, two symphonies and eight symphonie-concertantes. . . . Before there was Mozart was written by Lesa Cline-Ransome and James E. Ransome. I came across this book while researching more information on Boulogne. I have yet to read but I have a feeling this can be a wonderful resource for string teachers to have and share with their students.

One of my favorite images I’ve ever taken. When I look at it, it reminds me how beautiful life is. Although, it gets blurry and things don’t always line up, the simplicity of life is just so satisfying. Growing up in New Jersey I was never given the opportunity to admire the simple parts of life. Life is always a hustle in the north east and sometimes you just have to sit back and appreciate the colors. - - - - - - #art #photo #artphoto #photography #model #modeling #scenes #cinematography #ny #nyc #friends #narratives #photo -narrative #story #stories #beautifulpeople #people #artist #newjerseyartist #nycartist #nycart #lovelife #livelife #representation #creativity #creative #lifebehindalens

On #WorldRefugeeDay , we want to give a shout out to the @migrationmuseumuk in London, UK - a space dedicated to telling stories of migration to and from Britain in all its shapes and forms, including those of refugees. • Thanks to the advice of our friends at Toronto’s @towardmuseum , our founder @justineabigail had the opportunity to visit their space a few weeks ago and take in their exhibition “Room to Breathe”. It was an immersive exhibition that takes you through the journeys of new arrivals to Britain throughout the generations. Through a series of rooms, you can explore real stories and personal artifacts of the struggles, joys, disappointments and achievements of creating a home, finding work, navigating hardships, making friends and forming communities in a new country. . • We got goosebumps being there as it was like our magazine brought to life - the hyphenated British edition! If you ever find yourself in London, please visit the Migration Museum to discover the stories of voices that often go unheard. We couldn’t recommend it more!

Our three year old Noah was watching a video of his favorite song, Sunflower, from the movie Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse. Out of nowhere, he exclaimed excitedly, “Look Mommy! That’s Daddy’s hair!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Folks, not many of you may realize the importance of representation. Or perhaps you acknowledge it, but haven’t *felt* how deeply, intensely significant its emotional impact is, because of born privilege. Heck, even I didn’t viscerally feel it... until I saw the smile on my little biracial son’s face. For a three year old to be this excited about recognizing his black father’s hair on a superhero as well-known as Spiderman is most emphatically amazing. My son doesn’t know what the political climate is right now. He doesn’t realize that minorities and women are in one of the biggest socio-political revolutions of history, an ongoing war to recognize the simple truth that we are ALL deserving of dignity, respect, compassion, support and the freedom to live without prejudice. Just a couple years ago, this representation would’ve been inconceivable. If my son is this excited now that Spider-Man’s hair matches his father’s, imagine how impactful such representation might be as he becomes old enough to understand this world? Representation is important. It doesn’t matter who you are: minority, woman, fat, thin, sick, poor, disabled, LGBTQI. Your face matters if you are not already seen. Representation - IN THE MAINSTREAM - matters. #juneteenth #representation #blackrepresentation #blackexcellence #representationmatters ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse 📸 courtesy of: Sony Pictures Entertainment, Inc. © 2017 - CTMG, Inc.

For the first time in my professional career, it’s the opening night of a play in which I’m playing a Latina. I’m so soo grateful to have @joanna_550 in my life, creating her own directing work and giving me the opportunity to finally tell MY story; to represent for my family, their struggles as Cubans and actually allow myself to feel true cultural pride for the first time in my adult life. I’m a little nervous but so incredibly excited to dive in. It’s a one weekend run, so DM me if you’d like an industry code! Love to you all and wish this Cuban-American luck!

“I didn't know we had permission as oppressed peoples to adore our own bodies. Poetry taught me how to do that.” – Robin Coste Lewis ( @robincostelewis ), poet laureate of Los Angeles and National Book Award winner. . Growing up in a time where schools didn’t allow students to read books by people of color, Lewis’ parents gave her books by Black and Latino poets. Listen to her explain how this representation changed her perspective. #ArtIsJustice

We're almost through Pride month, and I've remained mum so far because I'm a straight lady and I wanted to be mindful with my words. Fellow heteros - we can come to the party but we can't make it about us OR host it for gain! Corporations have done enough of that nonsense. . The ugly truth is that big corporations capitalize on pride because their dollars are more important than their employees & their customers. They all want to make a buck on "trends." I shouldn't have to say this, but obviously being gay isn't a trend. Gay people have been around as long as people have been around. It's f*cking hard to be queer in our society, and it's worse in many other areas of the world. . Basically, corporations are all about using rainbow imagery when it means they can pocket the profits, but not so much when it requires them to actually stand with the LGBTQ+ community through advocacy, company policies, politics in the states/countries where they do business, donations to LGBTQ+ nonprofits, etc. . One thing I've learned is that when you support the equality, protection, and representation of a group of people to which you do not belong, one of the best things you can do is to amplify the voices of that group. This applies to a variety of communities - LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, the latinx community, the black community, the indigenous community, immigrants, the list goes on. . So for this month, focus on amplifying LBGTQIA+ voices. Go follow them, read what they have to say, comment/like/repost. Buy from their businesses. It's easy and it's a great way to help without taking up space in the community. . Bethany of @mavenmade made a pride month calendar for events in #RVA , and she has also compiled a list of queer-owned local businesses. Thanks to Bethany I'm able to tag these peeps below: . @mavenmade @jiniandtonic who made this lovely doodle for me Erin & Ashley at @mybirthrva @fiddleheadfarmandapothecary @wildlyfreebeauty @totheriver @blacksheepweddingcollective @thewitchywick @dayumjamrva @unmoo @the.mindful.barber @pistilandstamenrva .

LISTEN! I am still ranting and raving about this film! If you haven't seen it yet, WHY? Go and watch it right now. I went to the cinema alone, as I always do for films that I highly anticipate. From that very first long opening shot of the white rabbit and that haunting, ominous score by Michael Abels, I KNEW I was in for something very special. Those scenes of the fairground set in the 80's were beautifully composed. The whole time I had my hand on my chest, I was legitimately emotional 😩😄😄 because I appreciated the imagery so much. Little Ade in her Thriller tshirt as she becomes separated from her parents and wanders onto the beach to marvel at the storm, the fairground behind her as she clutches her candy apple. The ACTING! My goodness, Lupita KILLED it. As did the rest of the cast. Can we just hold a brief moment of silence for Winston Dukes thick thighs spread on that tiny ass bed with THAT camera angle! Thank you Jordan Peele, you are so so appreciated 👌🏻😂 On another note, I must say, it was glorious to see a beautiful, dark skinned family on the big screen. The use of music, particularly 'I've Got Five On It' was a thing of my wet dreams. I genuinely squealed unashamedly in the cinema. While the premise itself isn't entirely original and I saw the twist coming, I felt like I was watching something FRESH and UNIQUE. In the age of sequels and remakes, this was a welcome addition to horror. I haven't been this excited since Hereditary! Jordan Peele, sir, I can not wait to see where you take us next. #Us #Usfilm #horror #jordanpeele #lupita #winstonduke #horrorfilm #films #movies #representation #cinema

If you’ve got a financial dispute with your ex (for you or on behalf of your child), financial disclosure will be mandatory for both of you to complete. Non-disclosers beware! Disclose EVERYTHING and get legal advice if you’re struggling to complete the mammoth form E (used in most court proceedings). The only way to understand how to settle your financial claims is to know what’s in ‘the pot’ to start with.

If your pride flag doesn't have black, brown, pink, blue and white: then it's outdated! #queervisibility . . #Repost @danielquasar (creator of new flag. you can buy merch from him on his insta) . . “We need to always keep progress moving forward in all aspects of our community.” Flag Description: Background: LGBT 6 full sized color stripes representing life (red), healing (orange), sunlight (yellow), nature (green), harmony/peace (blue), and spirit (purple/violet) Hoist: 5 half sized stripes representing trans identity (light blue, light pink, white), marginalized POC communities (brown, black), as well as those living with AIDS and the stigma, and those no longer living (black). Explanation: When the Pride flag was recreated in the last year to include both black/brown stripes, as well as the trans stripes, I wanted to see if there could be more emphasis in the design of the flag to give it more meaning. The 6 stripe LGBT flag should be separated from the newer stripes because of their difference in meaning, as well as to shift focus and emphasis to what is important in our current community climate. The main section of the flag (background) includes the traditional 6 stripe LGBT flag as seen in its original form so as not to take away from its original meaning (seen above). The trans flag stripes and marginalized community stripes were shifted to the Hoist of the flag and given a new arrow shape. The arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while being along the left edge shows that progress still needs to be made.

#WorldRefugeeDay One of only a few pictures I have of me in the Napho, Thailand Refugee Camp. I’m sitting on my aunt’s lap, next to I’m assuming, her friend. We spent about two years there before finally getting sponsored to the States and being moved to “processing” camp in Manila, Philippines. I was too young to have any recollections of our time there. Between extreme overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, and waiting for rations of food, I’m surprised they were able to put a smile on their face. I’m still amazed at my family and all of the other refugee families’ resilience and strength to survive and make a new life for themselves in a new country. I’m reminded that in war, there are no winners, just those who survive 🙏🏽

After attending the Women’s March in 2017, @annieelainey , felt that the event was lacking accessibility to those with disabilities. This inspired her to create the campaign, “The Future is Accessible”, modeled after the 1970s statement “The Future is Female.” Segarra says this is “a call to prioritize equity and accessibility, to remember the disabled people in our communities, to integrate them, to uplift them and their narratives.” . And we couldn’t agree more. Accessibility leads to inclusivity, which leads to higher social engagement, increased happiness and quality of life for everyone. . We also need one of these t-shirts pronto! Love this photo @bonfire !
