African American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance itself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.

To big chop or not to big chop?
So, a lot have said to do it. I know it shouldn’t matter but I know my mother would be disappointed if I did. I haven’t had short hair since I was like 5.
I think I’ll wait another month (4 months transitioning total).
Transitioning is a great decision. :) remember this process is about you and what you want…not your mother/ tumblr naturals etc. So happy for you!!!!
Thank you! I needed that :)
