Slave gravesite in New York City

“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU: 
The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan. 
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”
Literally, and daily.

There are really fewer things that sadden me more than black women who lose their children to police brutality and release statements about how their son or daughter had academic or career goals they wanted to complete.

Its almost innate to every comment released by the slain’s family, as if they know they have list qualities (that are wholly irrelevant and arbitrary in that particular context) to prove their child deserved life to garner support. As if empathy for murdered black people comes with a list of prerequisites about how they could’ve contributed to society in a capitalistic sense and not that they’re entitled to live without the perpetual danger of being gunned down for the crime of existing while undesired.

Its such an unfortunately dehumanizing and profoundly violent society we live in that victims become the topic of speculation and if they aren’t able to measure up to arbitrary standards, they don’t matter.

City Gym Shorts | Purl Bee

These might be the most stylish, pretty gym shorts I’ve ever seen! That might have something to do with the fabrics - lovely chambray in indigo and gorgeous Liberty of London cotton in Tana Lawn. Sigh, to have the funds to buy as much Liberty of London fabric that I want! This is probably a sewing project for those of you who have had some experience - but if you’re up for a challenge, you’ll learn some great skills on the way!
