This Dad Is Photographing His Daughter Dressed As Inspiring Black Women

“My wife and I really wanted to make sure that our daughter felt fearless. We made a special effort to find women who had broken down barriers, who had been a ‘first’ something. We are hoping that she will be able to benefit from being associated with some of these powerful women. As a photographer, I know how important images are. The portrayal of black women is not always positive, so I wanted to do something to combat that.” —Marc Bushelle

The women 5-year-old Lily portrayed: aviator Bessie Coleman, Admiral Michelle Howard (the Navy’s first female four-star admiral), entertainer Josephine Baker, novelist Toni Morrison, fashion + music icon Grace Jones, astronaut Mae Jemison.

KULA

We are KULA, an independent band based in LA. We just released a new album “KULA II” and wanted to share it with you. It’s rock that blends progressive soul-grunge with punch-drunk psychedelia in an indie afro-punk cocktail. Thanks for listening and doing what you do!

In an effort to keep birds away from their runway, Staverton airport bosses have
taken to blasting out Turner’s hits at high-volume from a van that
drives around the grounds.
