    The fun part about working with museums is that the institutional racism is so thick you can cut it with a knife. These two pictures are of database index trees that are created to help people search for art or artifacts. Notice the categories under “African Art” in the first picture… Yup, all it says is African Art… again. What you can’t see is that there are 7 categories under Asian Art. It took me 2 weeks to get them to change it to regions in the second picture. So now, if you search for West African, you won’t get stuff from Kenya and Egypt too.

    African cultural items are often poorly managed, poorly catalogued, poorly maintained, and when on display, poorly mounted. They aren’t the priority of most museum spaces and there isn’t as much available literature on the items as there is for Greco-Roman crap: that’s some old colonial bullshit.

    However, I still stand by the idea that they shouldn’t even have these cultural items in their possession, but until that day comes, they’re going to learn how to respect them.

    I probably need to start a museum displays tag….because while we’re seeing great strides in some directions, it’s because of people who are actively trying to fight the existing problems in the way information is presented to us….

    The news just broke… Walter Dean Myers has passed. In his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books, served as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, won too many awards and honors to list, advised and inspired kids and young writers everywhere, and impacted thousands of lives. He was a lifelong proponent of diversity in children’s literature, and just a few months ago wrote an article that once again sparked the discussion.

    Rest well, sir. You will be remembered always.

    Beyond this, words fail me.

    MAn….naw…naw

Lmao

So were just gonna ignore black folks spirituality in relations to christianity? Or the history of black churches and the the role they played un blafk history as it pertains to the united states?
So are we ignoring that there are churches in africa older tuan the U.S?
Like chirstianity existed in africa before chattel enslavement and what kind of lazy commentary is being made by aaying that christianity is a white mans religion when we are all well aware of how white washed it and ita figures has become?

Exactly. One of the oldest forms of Christianity was formed in Ethiopia. The religion was colonized and tainted, like everything else that white people put their claim to…

realest shit

All of this. Jesus wasn’t white. And christianism wasn’t a white religion at the beginning. So…miss me with that fuckery.

LOLpeople living in denial…The op said nothing about the origin of Christianity…they are clearly pointing out the hypocrisy and disconnect between people who support black nationalism but still celebrate THAT IMAGE…since you claim Christianity has African roots how comes the images of Jesus in your churches and homes are still the blonde guy…
If you know better but you still promote this falsehood, you’re even worse than the people who are ignorant of the truth.
People would compromise on almost any of the rules in the bible (if it suits their needs or support the current trends) but will refuse to question why their savior looks like their oppressors.
