I’m thrilled to announce that I am now a board member for @AboutFreedomInc, #MadisonWI’s leading queer, feminist racial justice organization. I’m wearing the shirt I got at my first board meeting today!
Freedom Inc. is a #queer & #feminist led #Black and Southeast #Asian organization which focuses on leadership development, community organizing, particularly among youth, elders and survivors of violence.
I have been so impressed with their work in my 2 years in Madison & was thrilled when I was asked to join their board. This is one way I am working to bridge the gap between academia & activism in my life and use the privileges of my position as a tenure track prof.

PPOPHET MUHAMMAD’S LAST SERMON

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah) on the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (12th and last month of the Islamic year), 10 years after Hijrah (migration from Makkah to Madinah) in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat.
His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the ENTIRE HUMANITY .
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”

1. On Friday 6th June 1919, there was a #RaceRiot in the city of #Newport in #Gwent, #SouthWales. What happened in #Newport had a huge overwhelming effect on #RaceRelations for years to come. Here's a clipping from @nytimes about the #riot
2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." 🔥🔥🔥

In 1919, there were riots in:

🔸#Chicago
🔸#Baltimore
🔸#Omaha
🔸#Newport
🔸#Liverpool

+ and more

#Cymraeg #History #Cymru #Hanes
3. According to the #history, a #black man insulted a #white woman in #Newport, which lead to an altercation. It kicked off in #GeorgeStreet [see below], where 3000 white people formed into a mob and attacked the houses of the two black people on the street.

Ghana is set to grant citizenship to 200 African Americans as part of celebrations of the 'Year of Return 2019’.

The occasion would mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in America
#africanamerican #black #ADOS #caribbean #slavetrade #repatriation
The government of Ghana launched the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” as part of efforts to encourage African Americans and the black diaspora to return to the homeland where their ancestors were kidnapped and sold into slavery many centuries ago.
#africa #diaspora #homeland
In 2000, Ghana passed the “Right of Abode” law making it the first African country to officially open its doors to people of African descent from all over the world.

The law allows any person of African descent to apply and be granted the right to stay in Ghana indefinitely.

This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

Today is #WorldKidneyDay, so here is a thread about living on #dialysis & #OrganDonation. My name is Belinda Otas. I’m #African. I’m #Nigerian. I'm #Benin. I’m #British & I’m #Black. Beyond the nationalities or passports with my name, I also believe in our shared humanity.
I was 16, when I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRF.) I had no idea what was happening to me because at the time, it made no sense. However, I remember the pain of that period like noonday. I lived on dialysis until i was 22. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
It took over my teenage years. I don’t remember having much of a life as a teenager because dialysis was 3x a week & every session was 4hrs. Add the time it takes to recover from being exhausted by the process, my day was pretty much over. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth

The Trump administration’s efforts to fast track transfer of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia enjoyed the assistance of a lobbying firm Prime Policy Group (PPG), that represented Ukraine’s then pro-Russian government. #Manafort #Stone #Black

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

1/n
So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.

In @HealthyBoston briefing with @wutrain @CampbellforD4 @EdforBoston @LydiaMEdwards where updates are being provided about efforts to improve #trauma response and recovery models by the City working with CBOs, #healthcenters and #hospitals.
In my 8yrs on the Council, I have convened 7 hearings on #trauma, each with a different focus. Although more work remains, I am encouraged to hear that many of the recs offered up by impacted persons & communities at our hrgs & listening sessions were integrated into new system
Data collection of phase 1 implementation indicates that 75% of clients for #trauma response and recovery efforts were #Black #AfricanAmerican #Hispanic #Latino, AND 74% of clients reported chronic exposure to a single (11%) or multiple forms of #violence (63%)

1.

Like many of you, I'm deeply inspired by the #MarchForOurLives speakers. These students modelled a couple of key changemaking principles, relevant to #cities and #urbanism, worthy of serious contemplation.
2.

@davidhogg111, a white male Parkland student noted that media didn't give his fellow #Black students equal space in the convo, Naomi Wadler, a brilliant Black girl addressed ways racialized victims are not equally valued + most of the students acknowledged their #privilege.
3.

This degree of self interrogation, meaningful inclusion, and courage to challenge movements from within is how we achieve true #inclusion and #justice for all.

1/ Yes, #EverydayRacism is feeding into a narrative that distorts the truth about #violence, its perpetrators and victims…
2/ On the victim side, since that’s my dissertation work, if the victim is #Black and young, they’re portrayed as having asked for it….
3/ If the victim is #White or older or very young, well then let’s look at Black young men close to them…
