In 1978 West Bromwich Albion b

In 1978 West Bromwich Albion became the first British club to field 3 black players at once. Laurie Cunningham, Brendan Batson & Cyrille Regis made up what was dubbed the Three Degrees, who spear headed the WBA team in the '78 season. The importance these 3 had on English football can not be underestimated. The story starts with the then manager Ronnie Allen who loved flair, goals and attacking talent. He was the man responsible for bringing the 2 attacking degrees to the club. North London born Laurie Cunningham started in the Regent’s Park Junior League’s under-14s before graduating in 1974 to professional football with Leyton Orient. His pace and skill down on the right wing stood him out from the rest (as well as his flamboyant off field style) and he signed for the Baggies at the end of the 76/77 season. The following year a young Cyrille Regis joined Laurie from non-league side Hayes. With his strength earned from his time on the building site, his raw power alongside Cunningham's skill propelled West Brom towards the top of the 1st division. Midway through the season Allen left the club and was replaced by "Big" Ron Atkinson. Dripping in Gold sovereigns & chains, Atkinson wanted to make West Brom the most exciting team in the land. After a tricky start and some poor results the final degree was added. Atkinson recruited his old Cambridge captain & full back Brendon Batson. Batson, like Regis, was a carribean migrant raised in North London. And from there the Three Degrees (the football version) was born. And even with all the "I'll treatment" received at the time, their most impressive and seminal moment came in a 5-3 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Their legacy should not be forgotten nor overlooked, and even with the tragic events of Cunningham's early death after signing for Real Madrid, Regis & Batson are retired footballers who deserve their place in history. ✖✖✖✖ #westbrom #westbromichalbion #wba #wbafc #threedegrees #3degrees #regis #cunningham #batson #bhm #blackhistorymonth #blackplayers #blackexcellence #football #soccer #futbol #futebol #calcio #soccerstyle#footballfashion #kitcouture #footballculture #FlatBackFour

Adrian Piper (1948) Artist and philosopher. Conceptual artist whose provocative work addresses ostracism, otherness, racial "passing" and racism. Her work is influenced by her exploration of her own struggles with racial identity and address her multiracial background. She produced several confrontational performance pieces including, The Mythic Being (1972–81), in which she filmed herself walking the streets of New York City and Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a light-skinned African American man with a mustache and an afro and wearing sunglasses. She repeated memorized phrases from her personal journals and challenged passers-by to categorize her by race, gender, and class. This work helped establish Piper’s reputation in the art world.

The mode of punishing the slav

The mode of punishing the slaves is both cruel and barbarous. The masters seldom, if ever, try to govern their slaves by moral influence but by whipping, kicking, beating, starving, branding, cat-hauling, loading with irons, imprisoning, or by some other cruel mode of torturing. They often boast of having invented some new mode of torture, by which they have “tamed the rascals.” What is called a moderate flogging at the south is horribly cruel. The masters whip for the smallest offences, such as not performing their tasks, being caught by the guard or patrol by night, or for taking any thing from the master’s yard without leave. For these, and the like crimes, the slaves are whipped thirty-nine lashes, and sometimes seventy or a hundred, on the bare back. One slave, who was under my care, was whipped, I think one hundred lashes, for getting a small handful of wood from his master’s yard without leave. I heard an overseer boasting to this same master that he gave one of the boys seventy lashes, for not doing a job of work just as he thought it ought to be done. The owner of the slave appeared to be pleased that the overseer had been so faithful. The apology they make for whipping so cruelly is, that it is to frighten the rest of the gang. The masters say, that what we call an ordinary flogging will not subdue the slaves; hence the most cruel and barbarous scourgings ever witnessed by man are daily and hourly inflicted upon the **** bodies of these miserable bondmen; not by masters and negro-drivers only, but by the constables in the common markets and jailors in their yards. When the slaves are whipped, either in public or private, they have their hands fastened by the wrists, with a rope or cord prepared for the purpose: this being thrown over a beam, a limb of a tree, or something else, the culprit is drawn up and stretched by the arms as high as possible, without raising his feet from the ground or floor: and sometimes they are made to stand on tip-toe; then the feet are made fast to something prepared for them. In this distorted posture the monster flies at them, sometimes in great rage, with his implements of torture, and cuts on with all his might, 👉🏾

A massive shout out to @ferocemagazine to have the foresight to put together an edition dedicated to artists/people of colour to coincide with #blackhistorymonth. 😉💕As an artist of colour I want to be recognised for the quality of my work, yet, I also would like it to be recognised that my cultural heritage is an important part of who I am and how the world perceives and experiences me. As a spiritual being I explore universal themes relating to the human condition and the duality of existence. I will not be confined to exploring issues of race, identity, diversity and inclusion. However, I also have a contribution to make with regard to these critically important topics, so I will 😉💕. #fashion #fashioneditorial #fashionista #beauty #designer #published #editorial #model #bespokecouture #magazine #print #knitteddress #decadence #picoftheday #diversity #race #ethnicity #photooftheday #photography #followme #eastlondon #myhood #instagood #instalike #nikond810
