We are bearing witness to a profound moment in black culture, Aperture shows - Los Angeles Times
“First, in general, just even the idea of storytelling — the aesthetics, the accent, and the structure of storytelling still has to operate in the empire of this Eurocentric America. America is really European aesthetics. In general, the vocabulary of America is a white supremacist vocabulary and Europe lives in America with all of us being the ambassador and emissary of its vocabulary. My struggle is not only what I want to tell, but it is the very form of storytelling that I am in constant struggle with.”

How Gordon Parks Became Gordon Parks - The New York Times
He understood the silence of African-American history in terms of the larger story. And he was determined to make sure that his story was told, and the breadth of his story was told from multiple perspectives, from a boy growing up in the Midwest, to someone who had a dream about being a photographer. His life was complex. And it was not one-dimensional, as most people think when they see someone who is black and poor in that time period.

‘Stop calling 911 on the culture’: The powerful message Pyer Moss took to the fashion runway - The Washington Post
Jean-Raymond looks specifically at the way in which black people are cast in the role of “other.” They are not the default face of America; they are the face that America shows as proof of its diversity, as evidence of its openness, as a testament to its welcoming spirit. Black folks are not simply American. They are also American.

Awkwafina, Cultural Appropriation, and Who Owns the Blaccent
It is not by accident that people in power acquire cachet and adoration (and more power) when they don facsimile costumes of the people kept from power. And yet, power doesn’t often propagate itself so plainly in popular culture. We see its influence in what ends up valued and not valued, but more often, appropriation goes undetected.

Otis R. Taylor Jr.: Looking serious while black: Reactions reflect some troubling attitudes

Black Freaks, Black Fags, Black Dykes: Re-imagining Rebecca Walker’s “Black Cool” | The Feminist Wire
Given this, it seems to me that any notion of black cool that is only imagined as being exercised or embodied by black masculine men and/or some masculine women is, well, played out. Black cool is multi-textured, unrestrictive, and forever changing. We, black folk are diverse in our embodiments, sexual identities, and gender expressions; therefore, our imaginations of black cool, if they are to be unrestrictive, should be vast enough to consider feminine women, feminine men, gender variant/trans men and women, and differently-abled individuals.

Tanya Hamilton's 'Night Catches Us' captures a point in time - Los Angeles Times
I've always been interested in politics, poverty and the working class," says the director. "And the price you pay for dedication to a political movement."

Hamilton sets the tone in the opening credits, turning a series of classic Black Power posters into a potent visual statement but "it was important to me to show the variations of class in black life," she says.

As much as anything, Hamilton says she is drawn to the ordinary within black life, rather than the extremes. "There's a distinct lack of content specific to what it is to be a black American, the variations in that experience, what life is like for people who are ordinary. Those are the stories I want to tell."

How black people use Twitter. - By Farhad Manjoo - Slate Magazine
"It's my impression that these hashtags start in dense communities—people who are highly connected to each other," Meeder says. "If you have 50 of these people talking about it, think about the number of outsiders who follow at least one of those 50—it's pretty high at that point. So you can actually get a pretty big network effect by having high density."

“My mother and I used to have a game we’d play on our public,” Dr. Franklin said not long ago, his voice full of artful pauses, words pulled out like taffy. “She would say if anyone asks you what you want to be when you grow up, tell them you want to be the first Negro president of the United States. And just the words were so far-fetched, so incredible that we used to really have fun, just saying it.”

National Gallery of Art Reopens American Galleries After Two-Year Renovation - washingtonpost.com
While the galleries were closed, the old steam-radiator heating system was replaced, as were some 100 miles of wiring. The air-conditioning system was overhauled. The fire-suppression systems were improved. This work is part of a complex $22.8 million renovation of the building.

You're not supposed to notice. What you are supposed to notice is that you're on the Mall, in the presence of national monuments. Here liveliness and modishness have been, it's true, suppressed. This isn't accidental. In such a situation staidness has its place.
