#HappyBirthday #ThisAbility #Creativity #diversity #RightTheRatio #disability #blackhistorymonth #inclusivity #inclusion #intersectionality | You will never own the future if you care what people think.” – Cindy Gallop
—————————————
I am an inconvenient truth. I am severely physically disabled and happen to have Muscular Dystrophy, I am of Southeast Asian descent, and I am working in the creative industries; and I’m an aactive #IntersectionalFeminist. These are three huge influences on me and relate to intersectionality of my life. This intersectionality is why I love that quote above by my hero, Cindy, and today the 1st birthday of my organisation ThisAbility — Helping everyone move forward. A year ago today at 3am, after a tough few months, I decided to put Cindy’s wise words into action and just go for to set up ThisAbility. Despite a very slow first 6 months, the last 6 months have been awesome and have really picked up. —————————————
ThisAbility was born from a frustration and feelings of isolation not seeing anyone like me in the creative industries, but deciding to be the change myself.
—————————————
I’m chuffed that Anomaly are our first official partner too, and I’m super proud of what I’m doing and excited for the future. —————————————
Also, a big thank you to my family and friends as well as you awesome individuals and organisations for your ongoing support, love and guidance to help me take ThisAbility higher in a tangible, positive, focused way together. We got this! As Cindy best said: "Shared Values + Shared Action = #Shared Profit (that’s financial and social profit)." —————————————

Дольмены.
.
Существует несколько версий:
1)древние люди, по религиозным соображениям, строили дольмены, чтобы хоронить в них самых лучших представителей своего общества.  2)дольмены в Геленджике, это своего рода приёмники, настроенные на Информационное Поле Вселенной.  3) знаменитые дольмены - каменные домики, оказались не могильными сооружениями, а каркасами жилищ пещерного типа. Их возводили в близости от воды, как защиту от затопления. И это не погребальные сооружения родовой знати, а сложенные из камней искусственные острова, на которых люди пережидали эти подъемы воды. .
 Версий много,а тайна манит. Ну а мы бросили монетки и загадали желания.

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist, humanitarian and an armed scout and spy for the US army during the American civil war.

Born into slavery Harriet managed to escape to Pennsylvania in 1849 and became known as the conductor of the underground railroad. She returned to the south at least 19 times to lead her family, friends and 60 others to freedom using a series of hideouts.

The reward for her capture went as high as $40,000 but this didn't stop Harriet as she continued to work with the abolitionist movement even collaborating with John Brown in 1858 with his raid on Harpers ferry.

・・・| The concept of being 'self-made' baffles me. Why? Because in order to get to where you are now, your parents, grandparents and ancestors had to sacrifice so much. To me, saying you're self-made dimnishes the struggles of your ancestory. There's more of a specific reason why I believe this which I may write a blog post about.

Linton Kwesi Johnson, British Jamaican. He helped forming the British Black Panthers (see previous post). In 2002, he became the only black poet to be published by Penguin Modern Classics. He helped organise poetry workshops within the British Black Panthers and developed his poetry style with reggae music. His poetry contains social and political themes, such as anti-racism. The video above is one of my favourite poems of all time "Inglan Is A Bitch" 😂😂😂 #Day22 #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackBritish

Nigel Ruwende. Founder & MD at Saint and Birchley. @saintandbirchley is a textiles company that specialises in creating made to order aprons and homeware accessories. Creatively, Nigel's career started in personal styling, but he soon realised that he was more inspired by the construction of a garment itself than constructing garments on people. 
Now, for Nigel, the beautiful simplicity about making something so basically functional is truly where his passion sits. Let's not over complicate things this week - it's time to simplify. Happy Sunday! ✨

••••••Soul of A Nation. An exhibition that explores how art, politics and culture intersect. The overarching theme being, can art be used as a response to the political and social climate. 
At points it was hard to view (as always) highlighting the racial inequalities, showcasing the prominent figures of the struggle (many who died defending the civil rights of themselves and others) and the use of media within this time to express what was going on. It was also in the same breath uplifting and inspiring. Artists using their platform to bring about conversations and show the realities of others in spaces where they may not be able to go themselves. Many black artists couldn't exhibit their art work in the more know galleries, so they created their own pop up galleries. Wall murals and street art became  a popular way to display work. Their art was a message and that hurdle wasn't going to stop it from being seen or felt. 
There is still much work to be done when it comes to real racial equality and justice. 
I was challenged to think what will our part be in this? 
Taking A knee, marching, protesting, being a voice for the voiceless. 
Hope you had a chance to see it.

Brilliantly Endowed (Self Portrait) 1977, Barkley Hendricks

_
Brilliantly Endowed is a self-portrait that demonstrates swagger - defiance and cool detachment - as an everyday act of revolutionary aesthetics. Hendricks tackles head-on the double entendre and its potential stereotypical connotation of black male anatomy. #blackhistorywithblissful

Working till late tonight but taking a tiny break to delve into this much-anticipated bio of #PatrickNelson by Dr. Gemma Romain. Wrote a BBC4 monologue based on him this year - really fascinating person #bhm #blackhistorymonth #blackbritishhistory #lgbthistory
Barkley L. Hendricks (April 16, 1945 – April 18, 2017) was a contemporary American painter who made pioneering contributions to black portraiture and conceptualism. Hendricks' best known work took the form of life-sized painted oil portraits. In these portraits, he attempted to imbue a proud, dignified presence upon his subjects. He frequently painted black Americans against monochrome interpretations of urban northeastern American backdrops.

_
Icon For My Man Superman (Superman Never Saved any Black People - Bobby Seale) 1969

_
Barkley Hendricks painted himself wearing a novelty T-shirt, provocatively nude from the waist down. The work’s subtitle invites a declarative statement of solidarity with the Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale, who said these words at his 1969 trial. Here Hendricks paints himself into history as a superhero rather than waiting for someone else to confer the honour upon him. #blackhistorywithblissful
Barkley L. Hendricks (April 16, 1945 – April 18, 2017) was a contemporary American painter who made pioneering contributions to black portraiture and conceptualism. Hendricks' best known work took the form of life-sized painted oil portraits. In these portraits, he attempted to imbue a proud, dignified presence upon his subjects. He frequently painted black Americans against monochrome interpretations of urban northeastern American backdrops. _ Icon For My Man Superman (Superman Never Saved any Black People - Bobby Seale) 1969 _ Barkley Hendricks painted himself wearing a novelty T-shirt, provocatively nude from the waist down.

What books would you recommend reading for October's Black History Month? I'll be starting Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi as soon as I finish The Obelisk Gate by N.K.Jemisin.  Jemisin made black history herself last year by being the first black person to win the Hugo award for best novel (then won it AGAIN this year!)

A bit about Homegoing:
Two half sisters, Effia and Esi, are born into the Fante and Asante tribes of 18th century Ghana. The book follows their families, with successive chapters mining stories from each lineage. One sister marries a white slave trader, and one sister gets sold into slavery and shipped to America.  Generation after generation the novel sets the fate of the individual against the movements of the time.

Homegoing is Yaa Gyasi's first novel. She was born in Ghana and raised in Alabama

So i was browsing @skinglo_nafro profile and look what I stumbled across, check out the sheer arrogance of @nivea_uk in their justification of the ad campaigns they are running across Africa.  they're basically saying they figured out how to protect dark skin from heat better than melanin/God. Instead of an apology this is what they decide to come up with 😩.
