Andra Day 1st Black woman to win Best Actress Golden Globe in 35 years - TheGrio

Ms. Day played Billie Holiday in the United States vs. Billie Holiday. A must see film. I read Ms. Holiday’s bio over 30 years ago. She wrote about the drug addiction, but not about the problems of the song “Strange Fruit”. I have so much respect for Ms. Holiday.

Day dazzled critics and audiences alike in the Lee Daniels-directed "The United States vs. Billie Holiday," the singer's first starring role.

On September 5, 1942, United States Navy Messman Charles Jackson French swam through the night for 6 - 8 hours pulling a raft of 15 wounded sailors with a rope around his stomach through shark infested waters. The U.S. Navy Ship the U.S.S. Gregory was hit by Japanese naval fire in the South Pacific. Many were wounded and killed. French successfully brought these men to safety on the shores of The Solomon Islands. French was the first black swimmer to earn the Navy Medal for his heroism in 1943. We remember Charles Jackson French and commemorate his heroism and incredible swimming to celebrate Black History Month. Thank you for your service and your valor, Mr. French. 💪🏾🌊
