Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

this is why i just think people of color created and were behind everything ever. No matter what it is, it comes back to a person of color being behind it, and real talk 70% of the time its a black person or African civilization

shit. I didn’t know they stole her whole look too



^^^The bolded…

THIS picture is actually Helen Kane…
http://helenkane.wikia.com/wiki/Helen_Kane

Helen Kane tried to sue Paramount claiming that Betty Boop creators stole her singing style when in fact she stole Esther’s “booping” style in the first place. wrong picture or not the Betty Boop cartoon’s voice and singing style was taken from Esther Jones. They simply used a caricature of Helen Kane for the character’s look

^ ties into what i’m saying……… that her whole image is being erased and shadowed by someone else..

Guitarist, composer, singer, and perhaps the first woman to lead a male group (Sexteto Occidente), María Teresa Vera (1895–1965), trailblazer, with longtime partner Rafael Zequeira in 1916.

Her mother, of Yoruba heritage, raised her after the death of the father, a Spanish military man. A relative recalled: “I never heard María Teresa talk about games. Everything was made up of songs, always. Her only care was song. At the age of five she would sing accompanied by the piano”…She was a sought-after segundo singer who had to invent her own style, since there was no previous model for the mixing of male and female voice in a trova duo. Her repertoire was vast. Among her other distinctions, she sang…on the first recordings of Cuban son.

Six Facts About Harriet Tubman
1. Harriet Tubman’s birth name was Aramita (“Minty”) Ross. She was born enslaved in Maryland sometime in 1820.
2. Tubman escaped slavery with her brother, Ben and Harry, on September 17, 1849.

3. Tubman is most famous for her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, in which she led escaped slaves to freedom. Estimates vary, but Tubman is said to have helped anywhere from dozens to hundreds of slaves reach freedom. She was once quoted as saying, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
4. During the Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union army as a cook, nurse, and spy. She was also the first woman to lead an expedition in the war and guided the Combahee River Raid, which freed 700 slaves. Decades later, the raid would inspire a groundbreaking group of black feminists called the Combahee River Collective.
5. Tubman’s life has inspired countless works for art, including poems, comic books, and films.
6. This year marks that 100th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death. Maryland has a series of commemorative events. 

The last one really hits me. She had only been dead for 100 years. 100 years. Like, white folks are going on and on about how slavery has been over for hundreds and hundreds of years.
But here is an escaped slave who liberated countless others that only died ONE HUNDRED YEARS ago. This is not the ancient past. This is still living history.
