#Repost @majorityreport2 with @get_repost ・・・ “Their agenda to rewrite history➡ A Texas charter school is apologizing after a teacher gave an assignment to an eighth grade American History class, asking students to list the positive aspects of slavery. "When I first read it, I thought, this was b.s.," said #GreatHeartsMonteVista eighth-grade student Manu Livar. Students in the class were supposed to complete an assignment on the "positive aspects" and "negative aspects" of the life of slaves, giving a "balanced view." Manu said his teacher told them to draw on information from their textbook and "stuff that we could think of the top off our head." It was a precursor to the class reading former slaves' accounts of their lives in slavery.” - @majorityreport2 & @cnn . In my own #opinion this is wrong. However, I learned about slavery and its #impact on societies and cultures since 6th grade up to 8th grade. It is important to learn about slavery and its place in history because it defines so much of what is happening now / its relativity is important, but to put it on paper as something positive isn’t the way to go because it seems like your trying to look away from the #FACT slavery was forced upon people who were/had African and/or Mexican/Hispanic descent. Can’t sleep on the #truth . . Please #comment your opinions on this! Is it our #education system.? Is it us as a #society .? Is it #America .? What’s the key #issue here.?

Family had a lot of fun at #bemyneighborday @historycenter. Seeing the pieces of the original Mr. Rogers set and the original puppets got me thinking about how so many of us grew up watching a man who taught us how to love our neighbor...and for some reason we've all forgotten. He was right...maybe we should all go back to when we were children and were unaware of all the biases society created. We should all just Keep it Simple. #equality #equalityforall #equalityforeveryone #diversitymatters #wereallequal #wecandobetter #fredrogers #wqed #pghkeepitsimple #keepitsimple

Last but not least: The most important thing that I learned at my stay at Lake Catherine State Park, is to broaden my idea of inclusion. As I take this journey retracing my grandparent's travels to examine what it means to be African American in the outdoors, I had a narrow focus. . Besides other obvious groups that have not felt included based on race, ethnicity and sexual preference/identity - I missed one unseen population that would also feel excluded - people with disabilities. . During my visit, I stayed at the park's two-bedroom cabin, the Polly Crews Cabin. It was designed to be fully-accessible to serve the needs of visitors with disabilities. The cabin includes its own private and fully-accessible fishing pier and boat dock. . I was overwhelmed when I was on the pier and realized how I would feel if I had a disabled child or loved one that had not been able to enjoy the outdoors in the past. At Lake Catherine State Park, you can stay and play, regardless of your capabilities. We all want to be part of fun. -THANKS LAKE CATHERINE- . . #disabilityawareness #specialneeds #BlackAdventuristas #OptOutside #activeoutdoors #adventuregap #adventureinspired #forceofnature #getoutside #everytrailconnects #explore #outdoorjunkie #outdoorlife #naturegram #naturelover #diversitymatters #diversifyoutdoors #diversitynadventure #unlikelyhiker #lakecatherine #arstateparks #statepark #arkansas #explorearkansas #findyourpark #getoutstayout #womenwhohike #roadtripusa #itsallyours #outdoorwomen
Yo so what’s this?! It’s a photo I’ve been holding for a yr because I was afraid of sharing it, afraid it wouldn’t fit into my work, or I couldn’t explain it well enough. All these excuses in my head..truth is it’s pretty simple. I love diversity, as most of you know by now, and this is just an extension of the cosmic way I look at life in Los Angeles 📷. So from time to time these photos will get smashed into the feed. MINUS the rants. 🌊 tomorrow. #diversitymatters #losangeles #history #culture #camerman #cosmic #now

Diversity matters. History matters. Learning from history matters the most. #oakpark #diversity #diversitymatters #thelifeweshare #thelifewelive #historyhasitseyesonyou 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
I N N E R B E A U T Y ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are all beautiful in the eyes of God. I strongly believe that diversity should be acknowledged and celebrated in women, we are all equal and unique. Something I do forget is that outward beauty isn’t as important than the beauty on the inside. That is what really counts inner beauty is unfading, never judged and always gentle. We are so easily distracted by an outward presentation of someone, but don’t you agree that inner beauty is far more important? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1 Peter 3:3-4 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewellery, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 via Pinterest, Vogue, Tiffany R Chang, Obsessee, The Cut, The Peel Boutique ________________________________________________________________ #womenintheword #bedeeplyrooted #propelwomen #faithblogger #hopegirl #womeninspiringwomen #weareunveiled #soworthliving #faithinspired #gracemakers #beautyfromashes #innerbeauty #shedelights #thecaptivatingwoman #sheisfearless #diversitymatters #beautyfromwithin #gracedtobegreat #gritandvirtue #theuneditedmovement #littlejoys #seeksimplicity #shereadstruth #beautyfromtheinsideout #weareworthy #liveauthentic #livelifehappy #beautyinside #pursuewhatislovely #flashesofdelight

As a child I used to be very shy. I was judged by my origin and skin color. School kids laughed at me everyday. Their parents hardly accepted me. My mum had often been asked where she purchased me...Crazy to think about it. This all went on until second grade. I believe that something happens with a person when you’re not accepted over years. One tempts to constantly be on a survival mode. You can pitty yourself or get on with it and make changes happen. That’s my personal opinion. It’s fully on us! I chose to walk against a very strong storm at very young age. It was all worth it and makes me who I am today. •Do you know who I am? •Have we ever met? •What’s the story of our friendship? •What’s your story? #diversitymatters #diversityisbeautiful #influence #childhood #nofluffycloudshere #racismsucks #shorthorizon ▫️Photography by @saruephoto ▫️

Today I’m at the Write to Publish conference and I wanted to take this opportunity to remind folks that I have a patreon established so I can continue to develop as a writer and keep doing the work that I do. I don’t talk about finances often, but like many new freelance writers and self-employed folks, I’m low-income. I’m on OHP with $0 copay and qualify for SNAP. I want to be transparent about my struggles because while I’m happy and lucky to be able to pursue writing as a career because I love writing and uplifting other folks from marginalized communities, it isn’t easy. It’s a choice I make because of how vital it is as a writer of color to be in the media world and publishing industry. Both fields are over 75% white even though the U.S. population is much more diverse than that. This conference is a reminder of that reality and also a reminder of the need for people like me to keep making space in these worlds, even though it’s hard and tiring af.

Not so humble best friend brag here: @cmbriand ’s short film is having its world premier today at #tribecafilmfestival .

*DEEP WATERS* feat. port-wine stain (discoloration of the human skin caused by a vascular anomaly) . So I tried to illustrate a coral reef with very loose shapes and shades combined with more detailed golden plants and fish and I really like how the colors contrast each other. Nevertheless I can‘t get away from the feeling that it looks a bit too much like scribbling. Feel free to critique my painting, I apprechiate every thought that helps me to improve! . . . . . . . . . #portwinestain #feministartist #womenempoweringwomen #womenforwomen #artivism #ilustracion #illustragram #dailyart #artistsoninstagram #uniquebeauty #diversitymatters #grlpwr #intersectionalfeminism #artstagram #christianartist #selflove #embrace #germanartist #femaleempowerment #inspireme #reachforthestars #그림 #スケッチ #スケッチブック #bodypositivity #watercolorart #watercolorportrait #watercolours #watercoloring #birthmark

Islandborn by Junot Diaz is the kind of literary treasure that I love to discover. Islandborn is about Lola's quest to understand her roots.  She was born in the Dominican Republic but moved to the United States when she was a baby.  She is part of a close-knit family that values their history so she grew up listening to the music, enjoying the great food and hearing some stories but she has no memory of her own experience there. Islandborn is her story of discovery.  The story builds from curiosity to discovery and takes the reader along for a delightful ride.  It is a book that will capture the imagination of kids of all ages. As an islander, I was thrilled to see that the complexity of island life (both the beauty and the struggle) was honored by Mr. Diaz.  Although each island is diverse in its culture, there are a few things that we often share - our love for music and dancing, coconuts, mangoes, struggle, love of learning and the joy of community. The illustration by Leo Espinosa is captivating! Islandborn feels precious.  It is the kind of book that you want to read without damaging the pages because you want to pass it to every child and save it for the next generation.  It is a book that deserves many awards and I look forward to following it's journey #junotdiaz #islandborn #dominicanrepublic #dominican #childrensbooks #diversebooks #kidlit #readingisfundamental #readingislife #library #leoespinosa #carribbean #caribbeanwriters #pulitzerprize #booknerd #booklover #bookreview #bookreviewer #dominicanwriter #bookstagram #igreaders #bookblogger #bookworm #picturebook #immigrants #writersofcolor #janetautherine ##diversitymatters #onelove
The evidence on diversity in the workplace is conclusive: people are held back by bias. Which means the opposite is also true, people have advanced because of privilege. . Do you have Advantage Blindness? Recognizing your privilege can be uncomfortable, but acknowledging and owning it can be powerful. Thank you @hruprise for posting this.🙏🏻 .

We’re so excited to see this project come to life. Congrats to @faradayokoro ! #Repost @nytimes ・・・ A graduate student at New York University, Faraday Okoro was among 5 finalists for an award being given by AT&T, the Tribeca Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Institute to a promising young filmmaker, with a focus on underrepresented perspectives. After a game-show-like pitch-off, he won the transformative grant. His thesis project would have a million-dollar budget. But the money came with pressure: For example, it was to be filmed in Africa. The film, “Nigerian Prince,” follows a Nigerian-American high schooler whose mother sends him to live with his aunt in Lagos. There he befriends his cousin, a professional scammer who sends phishing emails, among other deceitful business pursuits. Winning a $1 million grant to make his film was “much different than winning the lottery,” Faraday said, “because I still had to make the movie for it to mean anything. And I could really feel that.”

Have you ever disliked someone at first who later you learned to love? 💛 In college, my friend Cat and I were looking for roommates to share a house. She told me about her friend Susan. “She comes off as stuck up and you probably won’t like her at first, but I promise after you get to know her, you’ll like her. Just trust me.” We met. Wow, I disliked her so much I got uncomfortable in my skin. She would one-up everything you said, or inject subtle digs into conversation. She didn’t have a positive thing to say. After Susan left, I shot Cat a what-were-you-thinking look. She laughed and said, “I know, I know, I get it. She’s annoying. But I promise you she’s the sweetest person once she feels comfortable.” I gave her a shot because I trusted Cat. 💛 Guess what. Cat was right. Susan was kind, sweet, considerate, naive and funny. We learned a lot from each other that year and are still friends. Whenever I have a strong first reaction to someone new, I think of Susan and remember it takes time to know people. Don’t judge a book by its cover. — Stephanie 💛 Think of someone in your life who you learned to love in time. Why did you open up? What has this person taught you about love? 💛 Image via @_mamantoronto_ . . . #lovedifferences #commonground #weareone #weareonefamily #differentlythesame #diversityisbeautiful #unityindiversity #diversitymatters #diversitymakesusstronger #buildbridges #multicultural #multiracial #exploreourearth #spiritualgangster #loveharder #bekind #bettertogether #couragetogetuncomfortable #createaspace #getuncomfortable #getwilling #loveinaction #morelovelesshate
