Harlem Shake

As you’ve probably heard or seen already, the new dance called the Harlem Shake is taking the world by storm. You might be asking hasn’t the Harlem Shake been around for years? I said the same thing. This new and some might say improved one is actually a new version that is only called the Harlem Shake because of the song. This is what actually caused the controversy. Harlemites that grew up dancing the original Harlem Shake have a lil to complain about.

With all this going on the guys over at SchleppFilmsComedy decided to hit the streets of Harlem and ask people what they thought of the new craze. You also get a couple of examples of the original Harlem Shake. Check video below.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. “Marcus Garvey

There is a common misconception among Americans that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves with a stroke of his pen. Yet the Emancipation Proclamation, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 1863, did no such thing — or, at least, it didn’t do a very good job of it. Two and a half years later, on June 19, 1865, Union soldiers sailed into Galveston, Texas, announced the end of the Civil War, and read aloud a general order freeing the quarter-million slaves residing in the state. It’s likely that none of them had any idea that they had actually been freed more than two years before. It was truly a day of mass emancipation. It has become known as Juneteenth.
