God's Trombone

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon

Today’s visual appetizers are selections of artist Vincent Michéa's work. Michéa has lived and worked in Dakar, Senegal for the past 28 years and says the city continues to inspire him. 'Dakar has one of the most beautiful qualities of light in Africa.'

HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I)

Muslim women are one of THE most under-discussed demographics in feminist circles

Why aren’t there 50k note posts talking about Muslim trans women

Or queer Muslim women

Why don’t we talk about the incessant hate crimes committed against Muslim women in the US perpetrated by white xenophobes

Why don’t we listen to these discussions. give these posts virality and circulate it into feminist communities
