I just had my last class ever.

College has been such an important experience for me. It’s all so bittersweet because I’m ready to move on but I’m also terrified of what the future may bring. 

But for now i will celebrate with a bottle of the cheapest wine ever. YES.

Janelle Monáe & Estelle “Do My Thing

I wear my clothes like this because I can
I wear my hair like this because I can
I walk around like this because I can
And I do my thing like ‘cause this who I am 

75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South. 

Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.
