Posted on January 19, 2017 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

More than 35 years after afro-futurist literary pioneer Octavia E. Butler’s masterpiece ‘Kindred’ was released, the iconic novel is being adapted into a graphic novel! A compelling, lucid tale about a young black woman, Dana, who travels back through time from California in the 70s to the pre-Civil War South. As Dana inexplicably travels through different perspectives during this turbulent time, Butler challenges the treatment of women, specifically black women, throughout…

“Don’t Touch My Hair” photo series reclaims and celebrates body hair as the natural, sacred state of women’s bodies

Posted on January 19, 2017 at 12:15pm 0 Comments

Fighting the symptoms of patriarchy is a worthwhile resistance in any shape or form, but fighting back through art holds a special place in our culture. Ayomide Odumosu, a pre-med Psychology student at UC Berkley felt compelled to create the photo project “Don’t Touch My Hair” as a response to the policing of women of color in their natural state. Juxtaposing the flora of Southern California with women of color of various shades and ethnicities donning their “overgrown” arm…

Curated by Christopher Paul Jordan, the exhibit combines augmented reality, social media, and public art to facilitate dialogue between Black artists from the United States and the Caribbean. The African diaspora is vast and our experiences…

Issa Rae and Jussie Smollett team up to produce new millennial webseries “Giants”

Posted on January 18, 2017 at 1:22pm 0 Comments

Although Issa Rae didn’t nab any awards at this year’s Golden Globes, it’s clear that her story is far from over. Teaming up with Empire star Jussie Smollett and director James Bland, they’re set to release a project on Youtube, the platform where she created the series Awkward Black Girl, which catapulted her into the spotlight. “Giants” is a series about three Black millennials approaching the age of 30 and the realizations that despite their age, haven’t quite mastered…

Hey! I really appreciate the feature you wrote! Do you think you could edit the sentence RXMXT identifies as a genderqueer demiboy, asexual and panromantic to just RXMXT identifies as queer? Thank you so much!

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
