The Black history of twerking — and how it taught me self-love |  Lizzo

Twerking is mainstream now … but do you know where it came from? Superstar Lizzo traces booty shaking to a traditional West African dance and tells how Black women across generations kept the rhythm alive, from blues and jazz singers to modern rap and hip-hop performers.

(And, yes, she twerks on stage.)
