The coolest Brotha in the galaxy

Much love to the coolest brotha in this galaxy and beyond: Billy Dee Williams turns 71 today. I could not let this day go without showing my deep affection and esteem Billy Dee. When I was kid in the 70's, there is no one that could touch Billy Dee Williams. He was the one of the first Leading Black men of the silver screen with starring roles in Brian's Song, Lady Sings The Blues, Mahogany.

By the time the 80's came, he became even more famous if that is possible starring as Lando Calrissian, the original owner of The Millennium Falcon, in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi. The suave and handsome Lando who though put in a tough situation proved heroes always come through in the end.

Billy Dee Williams is still acting in a variety of films and tv: Ladies Man, Undercover Brother, Constellation, Night Shift: General Hospital. What I also find fascinating is that he is a prolific painter as well. You can check out his artwork

Happy Birthday Billy Dee!!
