Howardena Pindell exhibit and artist talk @mcachicago Another Philly girl in Chicago. Asked about her art and Pindell discusses her emotional state, living conditions, social snubs, and housing. Artistic process is intertwined with if not synonymous with her autobiography. In her words, “art was a shelter from what I was encountering.” Definitely don’t miss, What Remains To Be Seen. #artistasarchivist #blackart #memory #howardenapindell

Yaa Asantewaa was an African woman revolutionary who successfully used her military wisdom to organize and lead the Africans of Ghana into war with the British. While King Prempeh I was in exile after warring with the British in 1893, a White colonial invader Sir Hodgson demanded to not only sit on, but demanded the land of the Ashanti people and to send the Ashanti’s sacred Golden Stool to the Queen of Britain under the orders of the Queen of England - acting just like the wicked colonizer she is. Upon hearing this, Yaa Asantewaa and the Ashanti people refused to be so disrespected and prepared for a war! Here is Yaa Asantewaa’s rallying war speech: “Now I see that some of you fear to go forward to fight for our king…in the brave days of Osei Tutu, Okomfo Anokye, and Opoku Ware, chiefs would not sit down to see their king to be taken away without firing a shot. No European could have dared speak to chiefs of Asante in the way the governor spoke to you this morning. Is it true that the bravery of Asante is no more? I cannot believe it. It cannot be! I must say this: if you, the men of Asante will not go forward, then we will. We, the women, will. I shall call upon my fellow women. We will fight! We will fight till the last of us falls in the battlefields.” -Yaa Asantewaa •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Yaa Asantewaa Love Africa Earrings •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ✅Hand Painted •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ✅Original Designs •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ✅Quality •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ✅Shop Link in Bio •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #wakanda #bodyadornmentbytaharka #blackbusiness #africanjewelry #africanearrings #naturalhair #blackpride #blackhistorymonth #blacklivesmatter #teamnatural #blackart #blackisbeautiful #blackwomen #naturalhairjourney #blackgirl #jamaica #blackpower #africa #blackfashion #longbeach #blackowned #blacklove #leimertpark #losangeles #panafrican #blackowned #blackownedbusiness #blackgirlsrock #educatedblackwomen #blac

Leon Kennedy. #Mother 👁 #AfricanAmerican #visionaryartist #LeonKennedy (b. 1945, #Houston, #Texas) uses #mixedmedia on found objects to paint ecstatic visions of #God, and #spiritual #portraits. 👁The @Smithsonian #AmericanArtMuseum purchased 200 works including a Kennedy bed-sheet painting chosen from the renowned Rosenak collection for an estimated 2M in 1997. 👁The Folk Art Messenger reported “the acquisition makes the @AmericanArtMuseum the world's preeminent repository for American #selftaughtart.” 🗣 Citing Kennedy, they report these works were the first American #artcollection exhibited at the Collection de l'Art Brut, #ArtBrut Switzerland, which "testifies to its quality and uniqueness." "It is our desire to see them as part of the #history of #20thcentury #AmericanArt.” -Chuck Rosenak. Leon is featured in Rosnak's " #Contemporary #AmericanFolkArt" (Abbeville, 1996), and Betty-Carol Sellen's " #SelfTaught, #Outsider, and #FolkArt" (McFarland & Company, 1999). #Painting #BlackArt #religiousart #Drawing #OutsiderArt #outsiderartfair

You never know who's watching. One thing I've learned over the past few years is that if you're doing your own thing for the love of it the right people will always notice. I really appreciate @its_lakeshiamarie for allowing me to be apart of the creation process with her first book release. I'm at a place to where I draw only because I love to do it. So I rarely take commissions. She intrigued me with hers because not only did she know what she wanted she had examples and everything altogether before even coming to me. Every artist knows that this can be rare lol. So we worked together and got a dope design together! Happy to see her many future successes and congrats on your first successful launch! #webcomic #manga #sketch #sketching #doodle #artoftheday #drawing #art #black #illustration #digitalart #mangaka #illustrator #characterdesign #animestyle #conceptart #sketchbook #blackart #sketchaday #obelisktheartgainzmaker247 #blackanime #blackandwhite #mangaart #animeart #shaolinmoorsvsworld #shaolinmoors #infinitelifecreations #deathsdesciples #Godswield

Andreeeee. Listen. I've had a crush on him since I was a child. Welcome to our #oldskoolbaes countdown!!! A modern renaissance man, he literally does it all. A rapper, actor, singer, songwriter, and producer, he is one-half of the iconic duo Outkast with fellow rapper Big Boi. Consistently ranked one of the best MC's of all time, Outkast was signed to LaFace records and released their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, in 1994. The album catapulted them to success and over the next couple of years they added elements of funk and classic soul into their music creating a sound that is eponymous with both Atlanta and southern hip-hop. Known for incorporating elements of afrofuturism into their music, they gave themselves one of the most distinct sounds we've ever heard. The multiple Grammy award winning artist is the father to a son with musician Erykah Badu. His sound and style continue to be major influences on artists today, and he's routinely referenced and praised in pop culture. We adore you. ❤️😘 Make sure to follow @theslayyylesteshow for all podcast updates and be sure to LISTEN to our latest podcast, A Conversation about Colorism, Part III, now streaming on both iTunes and SoundCloud!!!

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH: Black women in Engineering: Joan Higginbotham ........... Astronaut/Electrical Engineer ... . Straight outta Chi-Town, Higginbotham received a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering and two Masters: one in Management, the other in Space Systems, from Florida Institute of Technology. Before being selected as an astronaut, she supported numerous Space Shuttle launches as both a Payloads and Project Engineer at NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC). After two attempts, she was selected to join the Astronaut Corps in 1996. When she was not selected the first time, she was told she needed another technical degree to make her application stand out. So she did just that...she acquired a second Masters degree, applied again, and was ultimately selected! Higginbotham logged over 308 hours in space during the Space Shuttle mission STS-116, in 2006. She was also originally assigned to the crew of STS-126 targeted for launch in September 2008, but ended up retiring from NASA before that could happen. Joan Higginbotham is an example of a beautiful, intelligent, determined, and inspiring black women in STEM. Oh, and check her out in @aliciakeys music video, “Superwoman”. Indeed, she is one 👩🏾‍🚀. Her achievements are in the history books and serve as motivation and inspiration for the next generation of black female astronauts, scientists, engineers, innovators, and the like. Thank you for being a role model to the youth. Today, we honor and celebrate you!!! “I think kids need to exposure to just about everything because they can’t become something they know nothing about...the more you expose children to things, the more opportunities they’ll have in life.” . . #joanhigginbotham #nasa #engineer #womeninstem #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackgirlmagic #astronaut #astronauta #nefertitipokahontas #girlinspace #blacksinstem #spacepioneers #humanspaceflight #openingthedoor #art #artoninstagram #blackart #blackartist #chitown #chicago #electricalengineering #rocketgirl #blackwomen #stem #kennedyspacecenter #spaceshuttle #spacemission #smartwomen #deltasigmatheta
