“The function, the very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being.” TONI MORRISON • Toni Morrison’s powerful and poetic voice centered the experiences of Black women in America. She was the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature for her novel Beloved. • #AffirmBlackWomenPortraits

Most of the time whenever I take a selfie, I try to get it where it is perfect. No, I don't use filters or wear make up for that matter. This photo speaks volume. You might see a scar on my forehead. You might see a few pimples on my face. What you might notice is my dark skin. I refuse to bleach my skin for anyone or anything. There comes a point in your life where you stop worrying about what others think of you. There comes a time when you realize you were created fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. There comes a time in your life where you realize you are enough just the way you are. God created you to stand out, not to follow the trends of the world. This is actually a throwback picture. Notice I am not wearing weave either. I just so happen to love me. #VesselofGod #BlackAdvocate #BlackActivist #BlackFeminist #BlackAuthor #MelaninQueen #BlackGirlsRock #darkskingirls

Malcom X said that the most neglected person in in America is the Black woman. “Despite stereotypes of a lack of interest in environmental issues among Blacks,...Black women live in pollution, play in it, work for it and pray against it. Hell, we even sing about it. Black women are everyday environmentalists but don’t get the headlines too often. Rarely do we hear Black voices included in the national conversations about policy solutions, the green economy or clean energy. We’re relegated to providing a comment on environmental justice issues or the faces in the photos when people need to show that they’re inclusive when talking about climate solutions.” Yes, it is going to be easy for others to overlook/dismiss “us” because of our age, skin tone, and/or gender among the masses today in Boston. However, I, and others, will still be there in all our melanin shades. #ListenToBlackWomen. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽

If this Nation Heavily Invested In Our Youth From All Income Brackets, We could Create a Greater Society! But Then who Would want to Sacrifice their Good Lives To Serve in the Military? Most would pull a Donald Trump and avoid Service! This Nation has a Caste System, you can escape it, but there will be many unnecessary obstacles to get there...and That’s Intentional Family 🙏🏾

I can’t even begin to tell you how inspiring these young people were to me as I filmed with them over the last couple of days. They’re basically the community that I was desperately looking for when I was their age, a young environmentalist seeing the world out of balance, and not finding solace or community anywhere but animals and nature. Granted, they have two things that I didn’t have: The Internet, and PROOF (In the form of hurricanes, drought, etc.) But I’m so glad these young people are being born AWAKE. They stand on the shoulders of decades of environmentalist organizers, but they are bringing their own flavor and fire!!! 🔥🔥🔥The world needed them. I needed them.

By 1843, hundreds of slaves a year were  escaping to the North, jeopardizing the institution of slavery in several border states. Abolitionists nicknamed it the "Bloodhound Law", because dogs were used to hunt down runaway slaves. ⠀

I don’t have anything thought provoking to say to you all this week. But I was reflecting as I was walking to the library the other day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was thinking about how jealous people can be of Black women who they claim are “loud”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Those individuals who proclaim that Black women are “too loud” are jealous and insecure deep down inside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They are jealous that they cannot unapologetically say their opinions and thoughts out loud. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They are jealous that they cannot truly express how they feel and be unbothered by everyone else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They mock Black women with stereotypical caricatures for money and laugh at our cultural self expressions and then praise non Black women with those same attributes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Malcolm X said it best, “The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I am constantly thinking about the ways in which I can continue to uplift Black women, knowing how the world views us and treats us. Just my random thoughts... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyways how’s your week going? Anything to look forward to over the weekend? I have to study and do a rehearsal but I’m looking forward! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Central African Republic

[NEW FLAG STORY ALERT ☝🏾]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Barthélémy Boganda (1910-1959)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I was about to schedule my story, I went back to reread it and decided to focus it on the man above: Barthélémy Boganda. His story felt very similar to many African political figures fighting against French colonialism, but whose name got forgotten. In my country Cameroon, the government even forbade to have the names of such men written in History books!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But for Barthélémy Boganda, it is different. This man is the father of the modern Central African Republic for his people. His story resonated with me because, here you have a man who during the colonial period manages to get elected in the French parliament, a space by white people for white. From 1946 to 1958, he stays there only to advocate for his people and fighting colonialism. Doesn't this sound crazy? I found his story so fascinating I couldn't help telling it to you. I mean the nerve those parliamentarians might have had! Follow me in stories to know about that bold African activist!

Next Tues., we’ll host our 1st meeting of the year for returning/interested new members. But today—our school will be implementing an “After School Detention” policy (T, W, Tr), where teachers can refer a student to detention (in the media cafe with deans &/or in their teacher’s room), for vague reasons as “horse playing,” “extended bathroom times,” and “inappropriate behavior” as deemed by the teacher. Do read our official statement to our administration against this.✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽

Do you prefer to identify as Hispanic or Latinx? ⁣
•⁣
I talked to @eilenebeniquez about this and she shared her preference for Latinx. ⁣
•⁣
“It’s been a journey to find what I prefer to be called. Even now, I don’t use the term “Hispanic” but “latinx” (the x so it’s non binary) and even how latinx is a term I’m also having a hard time connecting with. But I prefer latinx. “⁣
•⁣
Although she identifies as latinx, she does have other ways she likes to identify as well.⁣
•⁣
“I got the idea to call myself what I am; Colombian and Puerto Rican from a northern indigenous relative. People called him indigenous but he always preferred to call himself Blackfoot because that’s what he was. Terms like “Hispanic” or “Native American” jumble tons of cultures together so it’s easy for people.

Do you prefer to identify as Hispanic or Latinx? ⁣

I talked to @eilenebeniquez about this and she shared her preference for Latinx. ⁣

“It’s been a journey to find what I prefer to be called. Even now, I don’t use the term “Hispanic” but “latinx” (the x so it’s non binary) and even how latinx is a term I’m also having a hard time connecting with. But I prefer latinx. “⁣

I was never told this in middle school, it was not something that was really discussed but it isn't hard to believe though. Have any of you ever been told this?
