๐ŸŽ™๐Ÿ—ณ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฟโ€๐Ÿ’ป Tonightโ€™s @schomburgcenter "Between the Lines: For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics" featuring @donnabrazile , @ycaraway , @leahdaughtry , @minyonm and @vchambers is sold out, but it will be streamed online at livestream.com/schomburgcenter and at Facebook.com/SchomburgCenter. Tune in at 6:30pm to watch. ____________________ From The Schomburg Center: Known as the โ€œColored Girls,โ€ Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore are four of the most influential African American women in United States politics. As political strategists, organizers, CEOs, and more, they have made history and left an imprint on Americaโ€™s political culture. Yet their stories, like those of so many African American women, are largely absent from the mainstreamโ€”until now. Join moderator Rebecca Carroll and these remarkable women as they discuss their lives and political legacies, captured in the new bookย For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics, written with Veronica Chambers. Rebecca Carroll is editor of special projects at WNYC New York Public Radio, and host of the podcast Black Folks. She isย a critic at large for the Los Angeles Times, and a regular columnist at Shondaland and Gothamist. Rebecca is the author of several interview-based books about race and blackness in America, including the award-winning Sugar in the Raw, and her personal essays, cultural commentary and opinion pieces have been published widely. #TheSchomburgCenter #BetweenTheLines #ForColoredGirlsWhoHaveConsideredPolitics #BlackWomenInPolitics #PoliticalStrategists #Organizers #DonnaBrazille #YolandaCaraway #LeahDaughtry #MinyonMoore #Harlem #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon
๐ŸŽท๐ŸŽถโœŠ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ โ™Ž #ArtIsAWeapon The revolutionary, fearless and flawed #artist #activist #Afrobeat creator #Fela Anikulapo Kuti @felakutiofficial was born on this day (October 15) in 1938. #FelaKuti embodied the transformative power of music to inform, inspire and impact socio-political change in Nigeria and beyond. His quote "Music is the weapon of the future" was an inspiration for my vision to create my #ArtIsAWeapon platform. His legacy is complex, universal and eternal. http://findingfela.com ------------------------ Shout out to my dude @richmedina for creating "Jump N Funk" all those years ago to introduce and share Fela's musical messages around the globe! Rich brings #JumpNFunk to his "Home" monthly party @cmoneverybodybk on October 27.

I was a high school art teacher for the last 10 years and I just recently left my position to focus on art full time. I was starting to feel a little blue, missing my students (not the early morning period 1 bell!) but this picture taken at my exhibit about a week ago made me feel like I am still doing what I was put here to do. These children are just like the children in my quilt. I love them (yes, all of them ๐Ÿ˜Œ) and I hope they can see that in the way I represent them. I want my art to be a mirror of who we are and what we need to see. #Teachers make a difference in a child's life every single day. Sometimes just the fact that I am an African American woman in front of a class made an impact. I'm so grateful to still be able to do that. #bisabutler #expochicago @claireolivergallery #blackartmatters please credit the photographer if you know them ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโค๏ธ#TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon #BlackArtists #ArtsAccess #BlackGirlArtGeeks ๐Ÿค“

This piece is featured in the #exhibit HUMBLE, curated by @doivigil & @evamayha , on view at @bronxartspace through Oct. 13, 2018. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข "At once subtle and not so, these floating objects take on their form as a hanging wall of scalps. The wax circles, textured like flesh, & hair that is indomitable. A symbol of cruel power structures, historical evidence of murder & a continual colonizer competitive mindset. Reflecting today in football mascots, teams and sport for example, @redskins & @chiefs. The Daily Republican, a newspaper from Winona, Minnesota, dated September 24, 1863 stated: 'The state reward for dead Indians has been increased to $200 for every red-skin sent to Purgatory. This sum is more than the dead bodies of all the Indians east of the Red River are worth.'(Source: Twin Cities Daily Planet / Trail of Treaties: U.S.-Dakota War 1862)" โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Knowing this history, I will not patronize or root for organizations and #sportsteams that use deragotory, offensive names, #logos and #mascots . Before @kaepernick7 "took a knee," the @nfl and its Washington, DC team's refusal to change its name is one of the reasons why I decided to #BoycottTheNFL four seasons ago. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #HUMBLE exhibition features works by 15 artists of various tribal nations including: Featuring work by @razellebenally @awapuhilah @holder_ad @frankbuffalohyde @justsynth @cannupahanska @dmiles1_apache @rosebsimpson @hoka_skenandore @doldrum88 @m_a_k_y_o @rorywakemup @mrwerewulf ________________ BronxArtSpace 305 E 140th Street #1 Bronx, NY 10454ย  Gallery hours: Wednesday - Friday 12:00 PM-6:30 PM, Saturday 12:00 PM-5:00 PM ________________ #TheHumbleNYC #ArtExhibit #BronxArtSpace #TheBronx #ArtAndTheCity #IndigenousPeople #ChangeTheName #RedskinsIsDerogatory #IndigenousPeoplesDay #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon
๐ŸŽถโค๐ŸŽธ #ArtIsAWeapon Although various men have been mistakenly credited with creating #RockNRoll , it was #SisterRosettaTharpe who first combined "sacred" #gospel and "secular" #blues to invent that sound and style of #guitar playing. So glad the @rockhall FINALLY acknowledged her contributions to music this year - if not for her, the genre would not exist. She transitioned 45 years ago today (October 9, 1973). I've seen a @PBS #documentary and an off-Broadway play "Marie and Rosetta," and I'm hoping someone does a feature film on her fascinating life and career! Her story needs to be told! ____________________ @Regran_ed from @dusttodigital - Remembering Sister Rosetta Tharpe, gone 45 years today. When she was asked about music in the late 1960s, she said, "Oh, these kids and rock and roll โ€” that is just sped up rhythm and blues. I've been doing that forever." #RosettaTharpe #MotherOfRockNRoll #SecularAndSacred #BlackWomenMusicians #MusicInnovator #BlackBrilliance #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon

According to @variety : "Visual artistย Hebru Brantleyย has signed a blind script deal withย Sony Pictures Television, through his production company, Angry Hero Entertainment. Brantleyโ€™s #paintings , #photography , #video , and #sculpture have exhibited worldwide such asย London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, as well as Art Basel Switzerland and Art Basel Miami. Collectors of his work include LeBron James, Jay-Z, George Lucas, and more. He has collaborated with brands such as Nike, Hublot, and Adidas. Brantley uses characters in his narrative-driven work to delve in to ideas surrounding nostalgia, the mental psyche, power, and hope. A major inspiration for his work includes the Afro Cobra movement in 1960s-1970s Chicago South Side, which celebrated the Black community and its achievements in literature, theater, dance, and the visual arts. Brantley uses #murals and #graffitis as a framework, and applies both traditional and unconventional materials, from oil, acrylic, and spray paint, to coffee and tea. Heย is currently developing his #Flyboy character with Gigi Pritzker and Madison Wells Media, as well as features โ€œKankakeeโ€ with Point Grey, and โ€œHypeโ€ with Peter Chernin, among others.

Currently, womenโ€™s issues are at the forefront of politics and social justice; in turn, the art industry is affectedโ€”particularly its women."

To be honest, at least in part, I feel scared. Anxious. Overwhelmed. And thatโ€™s okay. It is a surreal experience to go from being virtually anonymous to having an enormous amount of attention overnight. Things went from feeling like folks going out of their way NOT to cover our campaign to feeling like thereโ€™s a microscope on my every word, joke, meal, outfit, or makeup decision. Every time a media event like this happens I get NERVOUS. But I also think about how I never got to see anyone like me on any magazines growing up. I never saw a version myself in leadership, or on TV, or anywhere really and think, 'That could be me.' . I think of that saying, โ€˜be who you needed when you were younger.โ€™ When I was younger, I needed to see myself in others. I needed mentorship. I needed an example. I needed to believe that I could. Knowing that gives me the courage to overcome the doubt, the fear, and anxiety: the idea that if I do this, then maybe it will help someone else." .

The exhibition charts Whiteโ€™s full careerโ€”from the 1930s through his premature death in 1979โ€”with over 100 works, including #drawings , #paintings , #prints , #photographs , #illustratedbooks , #recordcovers and #archivalmaterials . ________________________ Over the course of his four-decade career, Whiteโ€™s commitment to creating powerful images of African Americansโ€”what his gallerist and, later, White himself described as โ€œimages of dignityโ€โ€”was unwavering. Using his virtuoso skills as a #draftsman , #printmaker , and #painter , White developed his style and approach over time to address shifting concerns and new audiences. In each of the cities in which he lived over the course of his careerโ€”Chicago, New York, and, finally, Los Angelesโ€”White became a key figure within a vibrant #community of #creativeartists , #writers , and #activists . ________________________ (๐Ÿ“ท of Charles White's drawing of #artist #activist Harry Belafonte reposted from @suzukiinthecity ) ________________________ #BlackArt #BlackArtists #MoMA #ArtAndTheCity #TraScapades #BlackGirlArtGeeks #ArtIsAWeapon

From #music to #film to #TV , you've accomplished so much - you are still doing it and you are still DOPE! I'm proud of you ... I'm still learning from you ... and I love you. #DefJef #HipHopOG #Producer #BeatMaker #remixer #BlackBrilliance #musicalforce #DontYellAtMeForThisMushyPublicPost #SiblingRevelry #FortsonFamily #Tribe #HarlemKids #BrothersAndSisters #LibraGang #DoItTilYourSoulFeelsFree #JustAPoetWithSoul #SoulFood #TraScapades

โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’” ๐Ÿ’ฃ I am reposting these powerful words from @donney_rose hoping that they will help transform the hearts and minds of those who seem to have forgotten or dismissed sexual assault survivors while they are so busy caping for Cosby. Some of y'all are seriously mad that he's been convicted and sent to prison for his crimes because several high-profile white men who have been accused of sexual assault/abuse/rape/ have not had their day in court or jail. Yes, the criminal justice system is racist, but do you really believe Cosby is innocent and shouldn't be in jail, and that the stories of the 60 women are all lies? The ignorance, misogyny and disregard for the well-being of sexual assault survivors is disgusting and disheartening. This includes a pencil sketch that is circulating showing Cosby hanging from a tree next to images/names of white men who have been accused of similar crimes but have not yet stood trial. I will not post or share that image because it is triggering to sexual assault survivors. It seeks to elicit empathy and outrage for this serial sexual predator and not the women he victimized. It uses racism as a reason to rally around a rapist, and not his countless victims. It reinforces the message that society does not give a damn about them. Lastly, this image is beyond insulting and disrespectful to the countless INNOCENT Black men who were lynched to "punish" them for the slightest "offenses" and to strike terror and fear in Black people collectively. By the way, that same man you're defending because of the TV shows and positive images he presented about Black culture despised poor, uneducated Black folks who he believed didn't live up to his "standards." He was out here pitching his particular brand of bullsh*t Black respectability and admonishing Black folks who didnt measure up, WHILE he was drugging and sexually assaulting countless women. (Don't believe me, do some research.) For the #healing , #sanity and #safety of sexual assault survivors, I implore us to do better. #EndRapeCulture #SpeakTruthToPower #WordsHavePower #DonneyRose #BelieveSurvivors #NoCapingForCosby #MuteRKelly #StopKavanaugh #TraScapades #ArtIsAWeapon
