Probably one of the first big books I challenged myself to read when I was young was hers because I thought Sula was a Samoan name lol. It was easy because she was a brilliant writer and knew how to reach.

This music compilation was made in honor of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, two Transwomxn of color, who paved the way for the Queer liberation movement from the Stonewall Riots to present day struggles. The compilation takes the listeners through the 60s, 70s, 80, 90s, and 2000s club scenes using bits of Queer testimony and some of the most memorable songs that have been performed and loved by Drag Queens and club goers alike throughout the years. Many of these songs are staples within the Queer club scenes and have served as ways to document movement, fashion, culture, and queer resilience. This mix is also dedicated to my brother and all of the Queer people, especially, Transwomxn we have lost to violence. A reminder that no matter how far we have come, there is no PRIDE for some of us if there is no PRIDE for ALL OF US.ย โœŠ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ—ฃ

#Repost @acaballz ใƒปใƒปใƒป The Talaandig are an Indigenous tribe in the province of Bukidnon, Mindanao Philippines. They are one of the tribes who resisted colonization, and continue to preserve their culture by playing traditional instruments like the Kubig, performing dances like the Dugso, and creating soil paintings that depict their beliefs, nature and way of life. ๐ŸŒฑ . . They also practice traditional rituals that involve eating betel nuts, placing coins face up to represent their ancestors, singing prayers and performing dances to the spirits and the Magbabaya, their creator. They also sacrifice chickens to grant blessings and protection, and eating the chicken will grant a blessing depending on which part you eat. (The wings help you reach great heights in success or journeys, the legs give you stamina to pursue your goals, the head helps you become a good leader.) ๐ŸŒฑ . . When I was researching another tribe to illustrate, I was initially drawn to the clothing, particularly the woman's headdress called the Panika. After learning more about the Talaanding, I was fascinated and I admire them for preserving their tribal roots despite global modernization. There's still so many things I'd like to learn, and I hope to visit the Talaandig ancestral land someday to get a better understanding and experience their way of life. ๐ŸŒฑ . . . #art #apahm #talaandig #filipinoculture #filipinx #filipino #bukidnon #indigenous #panika #artgram #drawing #digitalart #artgram #illustrationdaily #illustragram #illustration #artistsoninstagram #artwork #portrait #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #betelnut #chicken

TW: Rape #Repost @isadorakosofsky ใƒปใƒปใƒป Did you see this billboard on Robertson in Culver City in February and March? With writer and investigative journalist Kathy Dobie, we had the privilege of shadowing Stephanie Montgomery, the woman behind this powerful and gut-wrenching public installation. Artist, illustrator and muralist, Stephanie conceived of this billboard after she was raped at a club where she worked as a dancer. When the club and LAPD, with the DA most recently deciding not to prosecute, failed to take action, Stephanie decided to seek her own manifestation of justice. For 6 days, we watched as Stephanie, with a group of allies and fellow artists, paint this 42 by 14 ft tableau in a downtown LA warehouse. On a sunny February morning, with a group of Stephanieโ€™s friends, we watched the billboard go up, observing as each inch was revealed. โ€œ โ€˜While Iโ€™m calling for justice. I donโ€™t expect it to happen.โ€™ She said. โ€˜I want this to be my justiceโ€™ It had to be, because it was all she ever got. And she got it herself,โ€ writes Kathy Dobie. Please take time today to read Stephanieโ€™s story which was in print yesterday or see it online @californiasunday website. Thank you @jackiecbates for this assignment.

More recently I've been delving into their participation in the American occupations of Cuba and the Philippines. Their position in these wars has often been referred to as a 'Conflict of Conscious' for obvious reasons. I wanted to make a short speculative piece reflecting on the true accounts of Blacks who defected to the Filipino Insurrectionists. The Black protagonist is an amalgamation of David Fagen, a soldier who defected and fought with the Filipino Resistance and Cathay Williams, the only known account of a woman who enlisted as a man in those regiments (though she didn't serve in the Philippines). #comics #buffalosoldiers #publicsquare #afroasianunity #afrofuturism #buffalosoldier
