Joyce Bryant- The Black Marilyn Monroe #BlackFriday


Copyright: vintagegal.tumblr.com

 Joyce Bryant was a personality with extreme talent in the singing, entertainment and acting industry. The 1950s starlet was nicknamed “The Bronze Blonde Bombshell” and “The Voice You’ll Always Remember” due to her sultry voice and stunning looks.  Bryant's signature was her tinted blonde-grey hair, skintight cleavage-showing ensembles (rumour has it, her dresses were so tight, she had to be carried off stage after her performances) and her sex-appeal! She was a popular fixture in Black American nightclubs in the 50s decade, and earned up to $150,000 per year for her performances. She regularly featured in Black magazines such as 'Jet A Life', and was named as one of the most beautiful black women in the world, in the 50s.
 Joyce Bryant paved the way for black women to be seen as the beautiful specimens they are, and showed that women had talents which were not restricted to households and families, which although very popular in this day and age, in her era this was practically unheard of and considered to very unconventional.
 Long live the legacy of Joyce Bryant!
