I have long argued 1991 was a pivotal year for modern music. Allow me to explain why in this Friday feel-good #thread. #TheYearWas1991
For many genres, 1991 was a watershed moment. The albums released in that year often represent the start of a whole new generation of music. #TheYearWas1991
In this thread I aim to demonstrate how the music released in 1991 is still relevant today, either as parts of the public consciousness, cultural reference, or even as music still played on radio, TV, and probably on your computer or smartphone. #TheYearWas1991

As promised, here's a short introduction to #BlackFinnishHistory
First, keep in mind that at present there is no book or course on Black Finnish (or Afro-Finnish/African Finnish) history for me to refer to. There's info out there but it hasn't been pieced together into a clear timeline.
While still part of Sweden, Finns were as engaged in colonialism as their peers during the 1600s and were present at col.settlements in the US, trade posts in West Africa. In all likelihood, Finns were involved in slavery and thus with slaves, but there are no clear records.
