  1. Aside from the SJW comment. This was a very good story! These ladies were aware of what was going on outside in the world, but kept their minds focused on their art and to it's perfection in their dances.

  2. This is a story right here Ava, Spike or Debbie that should be bright to light while these ladies are still here. Here’s another part of black history that has been dimmed for ALL of us to see. Love it! Just Beautiful! 🥰🥰🥰

  3. Every day black stories in the news it is BLM stories this or that or political "baby tantrum whining Trump" stolen Election ballet RECOUNTS & Trump will get Criminal charged any day now stories🤦👍
    Spin less Biden / Haris or even lately stories about the rainbow crowd pride month aka the girl changing to a guy but NOT fully charged and whining about NOT being able to pee in the men's room in It's highschool whining about being maid to use facility facilities 🤷
