L'#IncendiedeNotreDamedeParis à peine éteint, de vives disputes se sont élevées au sujet du financement de sa #reconstruction. Mais d'où venait l'argent nécessaire à la construction des #cathédrales au Moyen Âge ? Un thread ⬇️ #histoire #medievaltwitter
Beaucoup l'ont fait remarquer (poke @MickaelWilmart !) : dans l'appel aux dons lancé par Emmanuel #Macron entre autres, il y a quelque chose de très médiéval
En effet, de très nombreux chantiers de cathédrales ont été financés par des appels à la générosité de la population. Ainsi à Rodez à la fin du XIIIe siècle : au moins 34 % du budget total de la fabrique – association qui gère la cathédrale – vient des quêtes

In light of #ReconstructionPBS and #FindingYourRoots I feel compelled to share this picture..though I'm sure my minuscule followers & non fame no one will care but I want to share the teeny gap between slavery and now.. so here goes *thread
This is my GREAT GREAT grandfather Sylvester Dawson of Yatesville, GA. As I was raised by my grandfather and him by his ..this man..I heard many stories Sylvester growing up ..whom I didnt even know his real name as he was known as Zeke my whole life
It says granddaddy on the picture bc that is my deceased grandfathers writing and thats what he called him and how close they were. Sylvester was born. Zeke was born in 1857 so he was 8 years old at emancipation and thereby came of age during #Reconstruction

1/17 Un fil un peu décousu, parce que je me demande bien quoi penser, dans le contexte du "retour" de la #Russie sur la scène internationale, des exemples qui s'accumulent où Moscou et Poutine se posent en faiseurs de #paix.
2/17 Je ne parle pas de l'offre d'aboutir (enfin) à un traité de paix avec le #Japon, toujours en attente depuis 1945 (offre de #Poutine qui n'a d'ailleurs pas abouti avant la fin 2018, comme les déclarations initiales l'envisageaient).
washingtonpost.com/world/2018/09/…
3/17 Je ne parle pas non plus de l'ambition que la Russie a toujours eu de jouer un rôle dans les efforts de paix au #ProcheOrient entre #Israël et #Palestine, qui irait au-delà de sa contribution au Quartet. Ambition qui a du mal à se matérialiser.

US House of Representatives passed Civil Rights Bill of 1875 on 2/4/1875. Speaking in support of the bill that day was Rep. James Garfield of Ohio: "The warnings uttered today are not new. During the last twelve years it has often been rung in our ears that by doing justice 1/8
to the Negro we shall pull down the pillars of our political temple and bury ourselves in its ruins. I remember well when it was proposed to put arms in the hands of the black man to help us in the field. I remember in the Army of the Cumberland 2/8
where there were twenty thousand Union men from Kentucky and Missouri and we were told that those men would throw down their arms and abandon our cause if we dared to make the Negro a soldier. Nevertheless the men whose love of country was greater than their prejudice 3/8

Two reflections from my research on this recent wave of #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.

1) We have no cultural framework for non-state violence with which to make sense of what's happening right now.
To be sure, there's a recent wave of important work critiquing state-sponsored violence & its relationship to white supremacy. But, these have yet to penetrate the public imagination.
All I've read on the recent attacks frame them as "racial," "gun violence," or at best, "political." These frameworks are totally inaccurate.

We are witnessing a campaign of white supremacist violence grounded in the president's own campaign rhetoric.

This was such a good conversation I didn't want to stop talking. Thanks @davidlparsons!

(P.S. wanna know why #ATL is the capital of #Georgia? It's not just bc of railroads! Take a listen...😉)
Hint: think race & #Reconstruction.
Also: learned something abt myself doing this interview bc it was over the phone & not on a computer.

I ❤️ed it bc I'm so ADD that my thoughts race way ahead of what I can say & I often get lost in them. But here I moved around constantly. Walking meditation.🧘
