there is a lot to love in this video of sister rosetta tharpe performing “up above my head” with an entire church choir, but allow me to direct your attention to a) the guitar solo at 1:26 and b) THAT SKIRT SUIT!
this old chicken in a biscuit box is legit cool.

GRC ATLANTA SUMMER 2014
Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.
she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.
one of my first sheros!
