June, 1964. Black children integrate the swimming pool of the Monson Motel. To force them out, the owner pours acid into the water.



And white folk wonder why

My mom was born in ‘64, kay? So, what that means is… THIS SHIT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO AND Y’ALL NEED TO STOP ACTING LIKE THE SHIT WE TALK ABOUT IS ARCHAIC AND OLD-HAT.

my mom was still in trinidad when this happened but seriously it could’ve happened to either my aunt or uncle who were 12 and 15/16 respectively

I think photos like this need to exist, not because I like the subject matter, but because it helps immortalize events that many people want to forget ever happened (and work pretty hard to make it so). It makes us face it. I’ve seen this picture before, but don’t know all the details. I hope the children in this photo were okay.

I’m always going to reblog photos like this. People are always like “Oh just get over it already”. Well, no.
No.

Reblogging this picture AGAIN. Because NEVER FORGET.

"Some problems we share as women, some we do not. You fear your children will grow up to join the patriarchy and testify against you; we fear our children will be dragged from a car and shot down in the street, and you will turn your backs upon the reasons they are dying."

KICKSTART YOUR DAY WITH: “Because Of Them, We Can…” by Eunique Jones Gibson

This amazing photo campaign for kids where African-American children pose as the great African Americans of our past and present that helped PoC to become who they are now, started out as a project for Black History Month. The photographer behind the project, Eunique J. Gibson, then realized that doing this for only 28 days out of the month of February couldn’t and wouldn’t do.

Extending it to a full year where everyday, she would post a new photograph up on social networks, Gibson started the Kickstarter to turn her photo series into a book. She hopes to raise $80,000 by mid June, and has so far raised a little over $9,000.

"I remember very well when women used to give birth to premature babies, we used to put them in underground holes and only remove them for breastfeeding. After about two weeks, the child would be grown enough to go with the mother."

Ssenga Bernadette Nabatanzi

Leaving this here for two reasons. 1) to show that the role of ssengas was/is not limited to erotic tutelage and 2) Ugandans knew how to care for premature babies before the Europeans taught them to.

I snapped these pics of a temporary exhibit at the Museum of Anthropology, titled “Speaking To Memory: Images and Voices from St. Michael’s Residential School”, an Indian residential school in Alert Bay, BC, which operated from 1929 to 1974 in the project of forced assimilation and cultural eradication. As is now widely understood, these schools often became hellholes of cultural, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of Native children at the hands of white adults, a multi-generational trauma whose pain remains a long road ahead.

During the late 1930s, one student at the school had a camera and she took photographs of many of her classmates. She recently donated these images to the museum, resulting in this exhibit. The old school building remains standing, in deteriorating condition, and photos of its now-decrepit interiors create a haunting backdrop to displayed items, which include statements from hundreds of students at the school, passages of government reports, formal apologies from various churches and government bodies for their role, as well as an ongoing invitation for more statements and information from visitors who were either residential school students or knew anyone who was. It’s a somber, dimly lit exhibit, and I could hear sobs from people taking it in.
