Repost from the NYT : THE BALLAD OF GEESHIE AND ELVIE
This is a powerful and stirring story uncovering the history of two profoundly important, yet largely obscure women, Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. These two women were pioneers of the jazz, blues, and all of their succeeding genres of music. On April 13, the New York Times covered this phenomenal piece written about these two women. We hope that this Sunday morning, you take the time to enjoy life, with your favorite warm beverage and this article. You will be grateful for it!
