Sorry for the lack of activity on the site. I, like most everyone else in the U.S., has been absorbed in the Michael Brown case. A lot of my podcasting plans have been derailed, such as the next topic I was intending on discussing this week, films about historical minority people. I’ve been debating as to whether I should just have a podcast about the Mike Brown case, just mention it before talking about minority biopic films, or what. I haven’t time to get my thoughts together because I’ve been watching the news and watching live-feeds on the internet non-stop since the protests started. 

I am thinking about writing a much longer post about the Mike Brown case on Moniqueblog.net; if and when I write that, I’ll make sure to post it here (with a link back to Moniqueblog). 

The one thing I will say is that I believe that this case will change things for the better in America. 

On a side-note, I’m also nearing my podcasting limit here on Libsyn. Trying to figure out a way to work around that. 

Anyways, I hope to provide an update or a new podcast in the near future. 


My latest podcast episode!

I am thrilled to have Janet Collins, the first Black prima ballerina at The Metropolitan Opera, in my upcoming book. But it also thrills me to see her getting more recognition and exposure in other ventures. My pal Karyn Parsons (Yes, that Karyn Parsons…) is the founder of Sweet Blackberry, whose mission is to bring little-known stories of African American achievement to kids. She created a Kickstarter to fund the 20-minute short on Janet Collins’ life that she is producing with Chris Rock narrating. Sweet Blackberry has produced two previous shorts for kids (on Henry Box Brown and Garrett Morgan) narrated by Alfre Woodard and Queen Latifah. Please check out the video at this link and donate - even as little as $1 can help! - so we can get this video in homes, schools and libraries around the world.https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/798791271/the-janet-collins-story-presented-by-sweet-blackbe

lots of people abandon their radical politics to defend their faves, like they’ll go hard against capitalism & choice feminism, but then defend capitalism & pull out all the choice & empowerment arguments the second someone says that your fave isn’t radical or feminist.

especially when their fave is a PoC

Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act: ‘Null and Void’

In a victory activists were unsure they’d get, Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the country’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act today, declaring the anti-LGBT law “null and void” because of a parliamentary technicality in how it was passed.  

The court determined that when members of Parliament passed the law in December 2013, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had not established quorum — a required minimum number of members present to vote — effectively invalidating the law.

Costume Porn- Belle (2014).

"You are courageous.  When it comes to matters you believe in, society is inconsequential.  You break every rule when it matters enough, papa.  I am the evidence.  This painting is the evidence."

Currently in the process of reading the book. Must see the film!

Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.

THIS IS BLOODY FANTASTIC

LET ME SMOOCH YOU

GOODBYE RE-POSTERS
