hoodfuturism answered:

hhmm well in some respects yes, but at the same time Brandy is given her due like she has pretty much done it all music, acting, merchandise, and what not but I will agree that some of her newer stuff is slept on. like so many ppl stan for the shyt she did in the 90s (and rightfully so) but dont see she’s been putting out other solid work in the 2000s as well.

She also usually has rly great lowkey futurist album cover art

But yeah shes hella underrated, like they said, especially her work recently. Like Two Eleven was a really good album and they shouldve released a couple of different songs as singles.

First African Slaves Arrive In Jamestown On This Day In 1619

A Dutch ship carrying 20 Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, on Aug. 20, 1619, a voyage that would mark the beginning of slavery in the American colonies. The number of slaves continued to grow between the 17th and 18th centuries, as slave labor was used to help fuel the growing tobacco and cotton industries in the southern states. 
In fact, African slaves may have been present in England’s North American colonies earlier than 1619, but Rolfe’s letter is the earliest hard evidence of the presence of slaves.

395 years ago Africans were put on this road of murderous oppression and we’re still fighting everyday to be seen and treated like human beings and not cattle. 

and the transatlantic slave trade itself formally “started” in 1441. and this shit didn’t come straight from Africa either, it made it’s way up through the Caribbean.
