INTERVIEW: Meet the composer behind your favorite cartoons: Sebastian Evans

Posted on July 25, 2016 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

What makes our favorite animated series so great? While many nerds will tell you it’s the artistic style, the relatable dialogue, or the engaging stories that cement shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ben 10: Omniverse, or Transformers: Animated as cartoon classics, these titles also have one other very important thing in common. Meet Sebastian Evans, one of the few Black composers in this field whose superpower is moving you to tears, sending shivers down your spine,…

Cast of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ make first appearance at Comic Con

Posted on July 25, 2016 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

The main cast of the best Marvel movie ever made their first appearance together at Comic Con this past weekend, much to the internet’s delight. Joining Chadwick Boseman (as T'Challa / a.k.a.

These days I am often thinking about the Black body. I am thinking about Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the way this list of bodies will be longer by the time I'm done writing this. I am thinking about the camera and what it takes to make you see. I am thinking about the camera and what it means to look, what it means to attend to history, what it means to attend to violence you cannot stop, what it means to attend to violence the Black body has lived through…

Art Hoe Collective: self care in the black community in the midst of all this anti-black violence

Posted on July 22, 2016 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Who mourns every day for strangers as if their own brother was killed? Who lives in constant fear for loved ones, strangers and for themselves? Who tenses and prepares for the worst every time they hear the words “did you hear about…”? The black community.



The pain that we, as a community, feel with each black person murdered isn’t new by any stretch of the imagination. Racism, manifesting in various ways, has been a truth that we’ve had to live with for…

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.
