I know it’s not 1800s week, but this gentleman is currently on display at the Newport Antiques Show in Newport, RI and I didn’t want to forget about him or his fabulous eyebrows by the time 1800s week happened.
John BlanchardThomas Howland
United States, 1850-1857 [x]
Thomas Howland was a resident of Providence, Rhode Island who worked as a stevedore and became the first black elected official in the city when he was elected warden of Providence’s Third Ward. He was denied a passport on the basis that he was a person of “African extraction” and thus “not deemed [a citizen] of the United States” - again, this man was an elected official, in addition to being a citizen with voting rights. In 1857, he and his wife and daughter left Providence for Liberia where his wife became a teacher and Howland worked as a sugar manufacturer. 

That is really cool! I’m going to post this (even though it’s actually an American painting), since this painting’s going to be on display this weekend at the Newport Antiques Show, in case anyone wants to go see it in person!

I’m sorry but… Isn’t this another case of an immortal celebrity?

If this had been anyone except The Rock I could have resisted reblogging but….
Can we just please put him in every single silly action film loosely based on historical mythology pls?

P.S. here’s a vase from 5th Century B.C.E. Greece depicting Heracles slaying Busiris:

found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom

OH SHIT.

The school I would have gone to if Wellesley turned out to not be for me.
