Nikki Giovanni talked to Sway, and it was great. 

Ok, so this is so epic. I really love the part when Nikki said "I think the most exciting history in the country—and I mean no disrespect to anybody else’s history—is the history of Black Americans because we are the people who re-created ourselves." And also: "Europeans came to America but really they remained Europeans, they just transformed it here. We’re the only people that came to America and became Americans because we had to completely re-create ourselves. And it’s a fascinating history. We did that mostly with song. And it’s one of the reasons that we still dominate no matter what else it is, the Black American sound dominates. Everybody wants to sound like us. They don’t want to look like us most the time but they want to sound like us." Then Sway pointed out how Black Americans’ look is co-opted whether via fashion, tanning, or other appropriation, which Nikki concurred with.

Also her points on Mae Jemison, Tupac, Beyoncé, her critique of President Obama and her comments on Nelson/Winnie Mandela’s past marriage are really important. 

I definitely want to check out her new book Chasing Utopia: A Hybrid.

Great video.

We think everyone deserves to go to prom, no matter how they identify. Reblog if you agree.

a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.

What got me was the fact that the two black girls couldn’t fathom being chosen first.

:/

"It seems like preferences are okay as long as it’s not Black women. But then it’s also not okay for Black women to have preferences other than Black men."

Wow

But why is anyone surprised though? Everyday you get the same message that a black woman is not beautiful, is not special, is not anything. The whole world shits on black women and we at the bottom of the rung when it comes to everything and that includes love and appreciation.
