Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth

Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth is the first film biography of writer and activist Alice Walker. Most famous for her seminal novel The Color Purple for which she won a Pulitzer Prize, Walker was raised in poverty in the rural South during the violent and seismic social changes of mid-20th century America. Women, poverty and civil rights became the inherent themes in her writing. “I’m not a lesbian, or a bisexual, or straight,” Walker says in the film. “I’m curious. If you’re truly living life, how could you not be?”

Pay it No Mind: The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson

This feature-length documentary focuses on revolutionary trans-activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson who was a Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, sex worker, starving actress, and saint. With her final interview from 1992, director Michael Kasino captures the legendary human rights activist as she recounts her life at the forefront of The Stonewall Riots in the 1960s, the creation of S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s, and a New York City activist throughout the ’80s and early ’90s.

Living With Pride: Ruth Ellis @ 100

Born July 23, 1899, in Springfield, Illinois, Ruth Ellis was the oldest “out” African American lesbian known. The film offers a rare opportunity to experience a century of our American history as lived by one inspiring woman. By example, Ruth Ellis shows us what is possible and what can be realized, if one not only lives long and ages well but also lives with pride. Ruth Ellis died at home peacefully in her sleep on October 5, 2000. She was 101.

Christoph Weiditz´s Trachtenbuch

Weiditz was a german artist of the XVIth century at the service of the Habsburgs who dedicated a year painting the everyday of the people of the territories of Spain, including, Netherlands, Rousillon and the both Sicilies.

In his drawings we can see, among paintings of other spanish people without any reference to otherness, black people and moriscos.

He also painted some aztecs brought from Nueva España to the royal court, that are some of the first images known of aztec people drawn from life.

[mod note]

unfantasmarecoreeuropa's submission is so huge I have to break it up into a few posts!

This portion featuring Aztec or Méxica people is actually really interesting because it depicts various forms of gaming or contests. Gaming was a very popular topic for many Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts. Examples include The Golf Book, so called because of the miniature depicting a game of golf; and Alfonso El Sabio’s Book of Games (El Libro de los Juegos), dating from the 13th century and also features many illustration of people of color.

An average day’s worth of straight men in Amiyah Scott’s mentions. It’s one thing to dislike someone and to talk about them, but to go into their mentions?

They’re obsessed.

This is so terrifying

This isn’t about disliking someone, this is transmisogyny, transmisogynoir, transophobia. This is hatred, in the strongest form. All these folks in her mentions can burn in a fire, get hit by a bus, whatever they aren’t deemed worth living to me. This is how unsafe Black Transwomen are, they can’t even exist in the comfort of their own space at home, on the internet without threats of violence, this horrific, and disgusting.

and what makes me so mad, and what’s an attitude that really needs to be fucking addressed in our community, is that so many of these men are threatening violence against her because they believe she’s trying to trick them. like this is how the media fucks with our perceptions because trans women have always been set up as a ‘trap’ to threaten the sexuality of the hetero-hypermale. they are operating within the myth that a) black women’s bodies automatically belong to black men for the pursuit of their pleasure and b) trans women’s bodies are ‘false’ and ‘deceitful’ female bodies, and by merely existing they are a threat to male heterosexuality.

trans women’s bodies are women’s bodies. women’s bodies belong to themselves. the world does not revolve around your shriveled ego and the satisfaction of your tragic libido.

Richard Sherman does it again! This time he wrote an article coming to the defense of former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Desean Jackson. If you haven’t heard Desean was recently released from the Philadelphia Eagles for allegedly having Gang Affiliation or has they put it “gang ties”. Richard Sherman wrote that Desean wasn’t a gang member and he is a real stand up guy. Just like Richard, Desean grew up in the inner-city where they both have children friends that chose a different path than them. Richard would go on and make many valid points in the article like how Desean was released for “gang ties” but The other Eagles receiver Riley Cooper (who is white) is given a contract extension after he said”I will fight every nigger here.”, last season. The main thing that stuck out to me was the fact Richard came to his defense. This is how Black Athletes should move! The NFL teams already is owned by rich white males, that’s why it’s important that black athletes show solidarity and stick up for each other. The media would try to always make black athletes the bad guy and write stories to add to that. Black players commit certain crimes in the league and since they’re black they get fined and scorn.
