This Wednesday, I was scheduled to speak at @DeBalie in #Amsterdam. After consulting with Dutch friends whose opinions I trust, I believe that De Balie is not a venue I want to bring my views to. My apologies to all those who bought tickets to see me speak.
It was one particular event that took place at De Balie (that was brought to my attention on Saturday) which began a closer look for me at the centre and made me question whether I wanted to speak there. I explain my position 👇🏽. I hope to return to #Amsterdam soon.

Today my article ‘Al de swarten die hier ter stede comen’ - about an Afro-Atlantic community in seventeenth century Amsterdam - was published #openaccess in @_tseg. The article is in Dutch, so I’ll do a short introduction in #thread here.… #twitterhistorian
From the moment the Dutch became active in the Atlantic world, people of African descent came to Amsterdam. Their presence is evident from baptismal and marriage registers and from seventeenth-century notarial deeds.
The earliest marriage of an African in Amsterdam that I have encountered was already at the end of the sixteenth century. On January 2, 1593 the 29-year-old Bastiaan Pietersz of ‘Maniconge in Afryken’ and Trijntje Pieters from Amsterdam registered their marriage.

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

Hablando de Francisco #Convit y guiso de 1200 millone$ q montó con @raulgorrinb: esos venezolanos, dizque empresarios, q han llegado a Miami, Madrid, Barcelona, etc., montando negocios, comprando casas y pisos de lujo, invirtiendo... deberían ser investigados x corrupción. TODOS!
O dicho de otro modo: ninguna fortuna “hecha” durante el régimen chavista aguanta escrutinio. NINGUNA.
Esto incluye a @jescotet, a @BODoficial, a los hermanos Gill, a @WilmerRuperti, al Michu Capriles, al Coco Capriles, a Gonzalez Dellan, al tuerto Andrade, a @RRamirezVE y su cuñao Baldo, a @pedrotp y su padre Torres Ciliberto, a @davosobserver, a @victorsierrab y su “colega”...

Looking at my #Gucci, it's about that time. It's #Cancer time. (Older heads will know, I likely don't literally have a Gucci. But a stroll down hip-hop memory lane is apt for this sign, no?)
And this is special for me since there might be folks of a particular sign, either by Sun, moon or rising, who are your Ride-or-die folks. Well, #Cancers are mine. I don't have to go looking for them or that. It just happens. Consistently. So, they're dear people for me.
Once consciousness has explored dimensions of risk & curiosity in #Gemini, it seeks out safety, responsibility, containment & renewal in #Cancer

Prof. René van der Duim @wur is onze eerste gast van vanavond onderzocht of en op welke manier toerisme in Afrika kan bijdragen aan natuur en milieu. #tegenlicht #tegenlicht030
"Klimaatverandering is een groot probleem (...) Nu wordt @Stichting_AM aangesproken, maar moet je wel bij hen zijn, en niet bij @airbnb of bij @easyJet? (...) Vlieland is een goed voorbeeld. Daar is decennia geleden een maximaal aantal bedden afgesproken." @wur #tegenlicht
"Als een weekend Barcelona 500 euro kost, ga ik niet, maar voor twee tientjes ga ik er wel heen (...) Kerosine wordt niet belast, en is 5x zo goedkoop als benzine (...) Treinen zijn nog steeds per land geregeld. Daar hebben @transavia en @easyJet geen last van." #tegenlicht

Any place can be transformed from a place for cars to a place for people. It takes vision & will. #Amsterdam 1976 vs 2017 via @amsterdamized
Amsterdam chose to give their streets to cars. Then they chose to take them back. There's nothing magical about #Amsterdam. They just chose.
Think your city doesn't have much in common with #Amsterdam? As city archive photos show, it used to.
