Thanks to the person who answered this question in my YouTube comments. What's better than one Black billionaire? A strong black middle class. An end to mass incarceration. A stable black community. 👊🏽🤛🏽🤛🏽🤛🏽Y'all better leave these #blackcelebrities alone. #blackpolitics 👀💯
Did you know that legendary band Jackson 5 made their television debut at the Miss Black America pageant, in New York City on August 24, 1969? 😎 At the pageant's invitation, they performed at the event & played a remake of the Isley Brothers' 1969 hit "It's Your Thing". 🎼🎵🎶🎧 Check out this #WayBackWednesday snippet of their performance. One can already see the showmanship of a then-unknown Michael Jackson (& a clear James Brown influence on his dance moves), who was only 10 years old at the time. The pageant was broadcast locally in New York City.
The Jackson 5's first single, “I Want You Back,” would later be released on October 7, 1969. Their debut album, "Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5", was released on December 18, 1969....and the rest is history for Michael Jackson and his brothers. 😁 Video courtesy of MJTVWorldwide.
