Explore Black Power, Black Hair, and more!

Hmmm? Mozart was a Moor! This is what Mozart actually looks like. The image was found in a radio station in Belgium. • The Moors brought Classical Music to Europe. Not only that but when you read the REAL bios of him, he’s described as having brown skin, “negroid features” (broad, wide nose, etc) and “wooly hair”. There was a book written about his hair b/c Europeans were so transfixed with it! people were awed by his afro. Definitely mulatto, and possible full Moor.

Beethoven: The Black-a-Moors of Europe – by ReelDeel Frederick Hertz, German anthropologist, in “Race and Civilization,” refers twice to Beethoven’s “Negroid traits” and his “dark” skin, and “flat, thick nose.” (pp. 123 and 178). Frau Fischer, an intimate acquaintance of Beethoven, describes him thus, “Short, stocky, broad shoulders, short neck, round nose, blackish-brown complexion.” (From r. H. Schauffler, The Man Who Freed Music, Vol. I, p. 18, 1929).

Beethoven was black. By today’s standards, based on descriptions from people who met him, if you were shown a photograph of the real Beethoven and then asked to.

He was the inspiration for the 2012 film "Django Unchained". He wore a black hat and carried twin .45 Colt Peacemakers. During his 32 year career as Deputy Marshal of the Oklahoma Territory, he was single-handedly responsible for capturing over 3,000 outlaws, once bringing in 17 men at one time. And in that period of time, never once did a bullet touch him. Read the story of Bass Reeves, THE REAL DJANGO, in my blog!

The Baddest Lawman You Never Heard Of: Bass Reeves

☥ The state of California was named after the mythical Black Queen Califia. According to the story, California was an island where only Black women lived. When Cortez arrived in California, searching for this mythical queen, her influence on him was so powerful that he paid tribute to Queen Califia by naming the state after her.

Fanboys are so up in arms about keeping canonicallly white characters from a whitewashed era white. Meanwhile, a real life black hero was whitewashed and I don't hear a thing about it.

#tbt for all those who wana say racism was a long time ago and is over now because "we are all one" all of a sudden. Far from a relic from an unenlightened past remnants of such exhibits have continued in Europe as late as the 2000s. Above photograph is from Brussels Belgium in 1958.
