5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Here is my five suggestions for this week.

Social Issues

First up is episode 29 in Crash Course’s Black American History series with Clint Smith. In this episode Clint talks about the Tuskegee Experiment and the appalling way black people have been treated and are still being treated in the fields of healthcare and science. As always a really informative episode.

TV

Next is Be Kind Rewind’s excellent video about the Addams Family’s films and sitcom. In the video we hear about how the Addams Family tackled important issues like racism in a time when there wasn’t many tv shows doing so.

Art

Next up is Kaz Rowe’s really interesting video on the life of artist JC Leyendecker. We hear about his relationship with his partner Charles Beach who also modelled a lot for him. We also hear about his relationships with his brother Frank and his sister Augusta. Kaz speaks about JC’s art and his struggle to keep his life as a gay man private in the times he lived where it would have been dangerous for him had his sexuality and romantic orientation been exposed.

Music

Next up is Billy Porter’s Children. I adore the music video. Such an amazing message. A really great, upbeat song and Billy sounds amazing on the track. Love it! 🙂

Finally for today we have a song for the Christmas season from Priyanka called Sleigh My Name. I think the song is really catchy and the music video is really fun. Very enjoyable.

Hi everyone! 🙂

Here is my five suggestions for this week.

Social Issues

First up is episode 28 in Crash Course’s Black American History series with Clint Smith. In this episode Clint talks about the Great Depression and Intergenerational Wealth. Incredibly interesting. Clint explains so well how discrimination against black people has being done over years upon years and has built up to be at the terrible place it is now.

Relaxation

Next up is a wonderful face massage from ASMR Power Of Sound. So amazingly relaxing. Just what you need after a long day indeed! 🙂

Music

Third up is Keiynan Lonsdale’s Gods Of The Disco. A real bop and such a creative, amazing music video.

Fourth up is SNAP! with Rhythm Is A Dancer. Absolutely adore this track, such a classic. Fab music video too. A really addictive track. I could listen to it over and over again.

Finally for today, here is Todrick Hall to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to proceedings with Bells, Bow, Gifts, Trees. Such a great beat and excellent music video. The dancing is superbly done.

Social Issues

First up we have the twenty-seventh episode in Crash Course’s Black American History series with Clint Smith.

Philip Randolph, Chandler Owen, the NAACP, Eugene K. Jones, James Weldon Johnson, Walter White, Buchanan V. Warley, the story of Black History Month, Carter G. Woodson, Marcus Garvey, Amy Ashwood Garvey and Amy Jacques Garvey. As always very interesting and informative.

As always some excellent dances including John and Johannes’ epic and amazing Argentine Tango to David Garrett’s The 5th, Rhys and Nancy’s romantic and beautiful Waltz to You Light Up My Life by Whitney Houston and AJ and Kai’s stunning and entertaining Couples Choice to Janelle Monáe’s Make Me Feel.

Next up is all the dances from the quarter final of Strictly Come Dancing including Rhys and Nancy’s wonderful and powerful Argentine Tango to In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins and Rose’s and Giovanni’s beautiful and fun American Smooth to This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole.
