The first black Africans to compete in the Olympics were Tswana tribesmen from South Africa

August 30 1904, two Tswana tribesmen, Len Tau (Len Taunyane) and Yasmani ( Jan Mashiani), they were referred to as LenTau and Yasmani because officials could not pronounce their surnames, became the first black Africans to compete in the modern Olympics when they ran in the Summer Olympics men's marathon held in St Louis. They had been in St Louis on a Boer Ear Exbibit in Louisiana Purchase Exposition held alongside games when they decided to enter the marathon at the last minute.

Tau ran barefoot on an insuitable course and over dusty roads, so dusty that it caused many of the athletes to collapse. Tau finished ninth and Mashiani came twelfth. This was a disappointing to Tau as many observers were sure he could have done better if he had not been chased nearly a mile off course by aggressive dogs.

Artist and Mother

There's a persisting assumption in contemporary art circles that you can't be a good artist and good mother both. These fou artists are working to shatter this cliché, juggling demands of career and family and finding ways to explore the maternal.

Black is the mother of Mankind 🖤 ❤️
The Black Woman is indeed the first human on planet earth and all of the different human variations and races can be traced back to a single black woman. All human life started in Africa, and from there explored to the rest of the planet.

• • | Meet the Master : Q & A Mixer with Alseny Soumah | • •

Thankyou brotha Ben for opening the doors of @kaosnetworkz so that we could host this 1st of it's kind Meeting with the Master Q & A session! This is how the history and culture are preserved and passed on!

Thank you to all who came out to ask questions and hear about his journey as a dancer from the Master himself.

And thank YOU ALSENY SOUMAH for sharing your story and wealth of knowledge with us. It was an honor to host you!
__________

Here’s Some Info About
Alseny’s Legacy!

The mission of the Lahydi Foundation is to carry the traditions of Guinea, West Africa ancestors while embracing the emerging changes in their culture.

The founder of the Lahydi Foundation, Alseny Soumah, was born in the Baga village of Boke, in northern Guinea. In the 1970s he began dancing in local community groups created by Sekou Toure to preserve and showcase Guinea culture. By 1985 he was chosen to dance with Les Merveilles D’Afrique led by the late, great Kemoko Sano. In 1988-1989 Alseny had the honor of dancing with the president’s national drum and dance company, Les Ballet Africains. During his tenure with both prestigious ballets, he has toured throughout Europe, Africa and the United States.

Alseny brings a fresh flavor and richness to the art of dance, embodying cultural authenticity and optimal professionalism. He is known to be exciting, invigorating, and remarkably creative. He is dedicated to sharing and preserving the rich culture of Guinea in his own dynamic way, through love and respect.
