Jimmy Fallon strikes gold again.

Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, for creating two black Downton characters!  I give you Downton Sixbey.

Welcome to Downtown Nappy!

Craziest name for a Tumblr feed, I know, but I couldn’t resist!  One afternoon I went into a colleague’s office to ask her if she watched Downton Abbey.  Frequently she and I discuss how we care for our natural hair, so she thought I asked her about some natural hair blog, Downtown Nappy.  I fell out.  I said to myself, I’m going to start a blog dedicated to the black and brown characters of Downton Abbey.  You know what?  There aren’t any.  AND BLACK PEOPLE EXISTED IN ENGLAND DURING THE EARLIER PART OF THE 1900’S, JULIAN FELLOWS!!!  I’m sure they weren’t working on grand estates, but throw me an extra in the village or somethin!
