Update: if you’re a sophomore or Junior and missed this tonight, it was exceptional! Seriously priceless straight talk from admissions insider and exceptional information and coaching that was far from average. Like exact questions to use to specifically negotiate offers with admissions, how colleges are now tracking applicants with AInand how you should use that to your advantage, or with Test optional, you may not need the scores for admission but you might need for scholarships. Or when filling out your college board profile don’t list any schools to send your scores to for free in case they aren’t as good as you hoped. Instead wait to see how you do and then send only if you’re score is above average.

Be sure to sign up NOW for other FREE webinar events listed in comments. Consider adding your email to #revolutionprep email list. You won’t be disappointed.

It’s not too late to sign up for this free webinar tonight 2/23! More topics and dates in the comments below.

The Work of Tracey "Africa" Norman — Tracey “Africa” Norman is an internationally known American model who broke barriers for the Black and brown trans community. Her legacy of work, particularly being the face of Clairol's Born Beautiful (1975), continues to redefine the fashion and beauty industry.

Tracey “Africa” Norman is an American fashion model and recognized as the first trans woman to model in the fashion industry. As reported by The Cut, she most notably appeared as the face of Clairol’s Born Beautiful hair color boxes: No. 512, Dark Auburn. Her moment of discovery came after she snuck into a casting in 1975 and was photographed by Irving Penn for Italian Vogue (Vice). Soon after being signed with Zoli agency, she modeled extensively, holding an exclusive contract with Avon.

Everything changed for Norman in 1980 on the set for Essence magazine. Someone on set during the photoshoot outed her, and after that moment, her work stopped the very next day. Norman's feature in The Cut shared how she worked in sales, at a burlesque club, and how she became involved with drag-ball culture -- joining the House of Africa and becoming the Mother (She was inducted in the Ballroom Hall of Fame in 2001).

But that feature, published by the newspaper in December 2015, prompted Clairol to re-sign Norman as a model, nudging the world to give her due flowers as a trailblazer (The Cut).

“I have learned over the years that anybody of color who is a trailblazer — and I fall into that category — are the ones that pay the price for other people to benefit from, or to continue the fight. I started realizing that after Martin Luther King. They assassinated him. He was a trailblazer. There are other people that were trailblazers in the art who were blacklisted, like Nina Simone, that were trailblazers in their craft and got destroyed because of their skin color and their beliefs. But they were all trailblazers and they left a door for somebody to follow through.”
~ Tracey Norman in The Advocate

The first-ever instance of “The High-Five” was invented by rookie outfielder Glenn Burke and his teammate Dusty Baker when playing against the Astros on October 2, 1977. Glenn Burke is also known for being the first openly gay player in Major League Baseball.

Jon Mooallem for ESPN reports:
"It was the last day of the regular season, and Dodgers left fielder Dusty Baker had just gone deep off the Astros' J.R. Richard. It was Baker's 30th home run, making the Dodgers the first team in history to have four sluggers -- Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey and Reggie Smith -- with at least 30 homers each. It was a wild, triumphant moment and a good omen as the Dodgers headed to the playoffs. Burke, waiting on deck, thrust his hand enthusiastically over his head to greet his friend at the plate. Baker, not knowing what to do, smacked it. 'His hand was up in the air, and he was arching way back,' says Baker, now 62 and managing the Reds. 'So I reached up and hit his hand. It seemed like the thing to do'."

Burke then stepped up and launched his first major league home run. And as he returned to the dugout, Baker high-fived him. From there, the story goes, the high five went ricocheting around the world. (According to Dodgers team historian Mark Langill, the game was not televised, and no footage survives.)

Demoted back to the minor leagues, he decided to retire at 27. His experience as a trailblazer did not rob his love for the sport. When he came out in 1982, Inside Out writer Michael Smith described the high-five “as a defiant symbol of gay pride.” He played in the San Francisco Gay Softball League and Gay Olympics (known now as the Gay Games).

Burke's life echoes the experiences of many gay Black people during that time period. The high five might seem simplistic, but it's important to remember that this enduring gesture of solidarity and community was popularized by someone who his own peers ostracized.
