    In 1949 'Okhai Ojeikere bought his first box brownie camera.
    He spent the next few years taking pictures of the hairstyles of the local women in his home in Nigeria. What followed was a collection of some of the most creative and intricate designs imaginable.
    These women had no access to the modes of communicating fashion memes that we have become so used to such as, tv, movies, fashion magazines and other extensions of the influence of modern pop culture. They simply experimented and expressed themselves however they wished. Some designs were completely original, others followed trends.
    Some tribes and cultural groups had similar fashions, and new fads swept through from group to group, just as you'd expect where fashion and women come together in once place.

    History can be ugly because human beings can be very ugly. That's never a reason to turn a blind eye to what happened in the past and how it's affecting our present and future.

    I do miss the art of the truly historic photograph. The lighting and direction etc.

    I suppose there’s still iconic historic photos right now but we won’t know til a few decades in the future

    Jewish Menorah Defies Nazi Flag - 1931
    It was the eighth night of Chanukah in Kiel, Germany, a small town with a Jewish population of 500. That year, 1931, the last night Chanukah fell on Friday evening, and Rabbi Akiva Boruch Posner, spiritual leader of the town was hurrying to light the Menorah before the Shabbat set in. Directly across the Posner’s home stood the Nazi headquarters in Kiel, displaying the dreaded Nazi Party flag in the cold December night. With the eight lights of the Menorah glowing brightly in her window, Rabbi Posner’s wife, Rachel, snapped a photo of the Menorah and captured the Nazi building and flag in the background. She wrote a few lines in German on the back of the photo. “Chanukah, 5692. ‘Judea dies’, thus says the banner. ‘Judea will live forever’, thus respond the lights.”

    As the leader of the civil rights movement in Cambridge, Maryland in the 1960s, Gloria Richardson worked tirelessly to end segregation and unequal government treatment of blacks. During this time, they also had to actively defend themselves from attacks by white supremacists and pro-segregationists. In 1963, racial tensions culminated in a major riot, forcing the governor to declare martial law and send in the National Guard. This ugly episode would turn out to be Richardson’s finest moment: Instead of backing down from a Guardsman pointing a bayonet at her face, the single, middle-aged mother of two angrily brushed it aside and shouted invectives at the man. Although Richardson would later continue to join other protests, she never forgot that fateful incident in her later years, even remarking that she was crazy to have done that back then.
