When I first saw Jessica Shzor on Gossip Girl I knew she was mixed with black!

This thread is so interesting. Very interesting youtube tv show about people passing and their stories.

Blanche Bruce, first AA senator to serve a full term

Josephine%20BruceA clubwoman, teacher, society leader, and race activist, Josephine Beall Willson Bruce was born in Philadelphia on October 29, 1853, to Dr. Joseph Willson, a prominent dentist, and Elizabeth Harnett Willson, a singer and musician. In 1854 the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio where Josephine Willson received her education. An accomplished linguist, she enjoyed literature and classical music.

On June 24, 1878, she married Republican senator Blanche K. Bruce, a political leader and plantation owner from Mississippi and the only black United States senator. After touring Europe they established residence in Washington, D.C. With Josephine Bruce a cultured and charming hostess, the Bruce home became a center of Washington social life. Though Blanche Bruce's term ended in 1880 he received political appointments in Washington enabling the couple to remain active in social and community life.

Josephine Bruce became interested in the emerging women's club movement and in 1892 became one of the charter members of the Colored Woman's League of Washington, D.C. As one of a small group of black women in the nation's capital who organized the National Organization of Afro-American Women (1894) to improve and promote the interests of black women, Bruce spoke at the convention of the National Federation of Afro-American Women in 1896. That convention led to the merger of two organizations forming the National Association of Colored Women. This early leadership helped her election as first vice president of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) at the 1899 convention. At that organization's 1906 meeting she was an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency when her fair complexion was used against her. Although she reduced her involvement with the NACW, she continued her club activities.

Shortly after her husband died in 1898, Josephine Bruce joined the staff at Tuskegee Institute, becoming dean of women and remaining in that position until 1902. In addition to her club and educational work, she wrote articles, one for The Crisis and three for the Voice of the Negro. She edited National Notes, the official organ of the National Association of Colored Women. She also managed real estate holdings in the District of Columbia and a plantation in Mississippi.

Josephine Bruce died on February 24, 1923, at the residence of her son in Kendall, West Virginia.

I always thought Mae West had some black in her. I was surprised to find out she was supposedly white.

more or less thats how it got down

mulattoes and creoles were their own class before reconstruction, but after it ended, whites said "now yall dont dare to think you something special, you're just negroes", but then they made research and estimated that 70% of freedmen is mixed to some degree. now that was a problem. so they just took a shortcut and imposed ODR. of course it opposes common sense, thats its purpose Geek creoles were historically the only group that opposed it and it seems to me most of them still do
