What’s better than Macklemore? This.
DOPE. Now I’m mad I missed him at Afropunk :-(
Wrote a blog post for the Women’s Fund of RI, which came out yesterday. I’ve gotten some nice feedback so far, but I am wondering what my Tumblr friends think. Read it by clicking here; below is an excerpt.
As for #ThanksMiley, #SolidarityisforWhiteWomen, #WhyWhitePeopleRiot and #BlackPowerisforBlackMen, these are about people of color and women of color – particularly the Black Twitterati – being fed up.
“In the case of #ThanksMiley, this is about people being tired of cultural and historical storytellers misrepresenting and taking credit for the origins of art and political movements, aka cultural appropriation (or cultural misappropriation).”
Hear more about the two-day festival and worldwide movement that is Afropunk. PLUS MUCH MORE!!!
