#TBT to last Wednesday 😂. Boardwalk Empire Final Season Premiere in NYC. | Had a gown and hairstyle special for this night. And then was bitten by a mysterious insect in Atlanta which caused bruises on my legs and switched up my look. Hair appointment swapped for a Doctors appointment. All in all, I had a great time with the HBO/BWE Fam.

… that time @maxwell stood on something to take a pic because of these statuesque beauties and their height. 😂. I had the pleasure of meeting both @ciprianaquann and her twin @tk_wonder (of @urbanbushbabes) at the Season 5 Premiere Afterparty of @BoardwalkEmpireHBO. So Gracious, Humorous, and Gorgeous. Please check out more pics from that night over at UrbanBushBabes.com 😘 (at Cipriani’s in Midtown Manhattan)

Omar Ibn Said (1770-1864, aka “Uncle Moro” or “Moreau”) was the son of a wealthy family in what is now Senegal, who received a scholar’s education. He was enslaved and brought to South Carolina in 1807, just before the importing of slaves was outlawed. He fled, was re-captured in Fayetteville, NC, and spent the rest of his life as a house slave. He left 14 manuscripts in Arabic, including a partial copy of the Quran done from memory, essays on history and theology, and an autobiography.

I never tire of watching this.. The Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather (1943) Fred Astaire called this “the Greatest dance number ever filmed”. This scene was filmed in one take and they even didn’t rehearse jumping over each others’ heads.
