On July 20th,  over 400 protectors shut down the entrance to the proposed #ConcentrationCamp at Ft. Sill in Lawton, O.K.
For twenty years in the late 1800s Ft. Sill imprisoned over 300 of our Apace relatives. Geronimo died here. 
Led by Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island regardless of so- called “borders” we made a strong statement-
Indigenous people won’t allow our relatives crossing the so-called “border” to suffer the same atrocities from our history in concentration camps across America. 
No camps on stolen land. 
This administration’s racism doesn’t scare us, we’ve survived worse and we are just getting started. 
The local and national organizations Indigenous Environmental Network organized this action with include: Dream Action Oklahoma, United We Dream, Black Lives Matter Oklahoma City, Democratic Socialists of America - Oklahoma City, Native Voice Network, Tsuru for Solidarity, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice, ACLU OK, Women’s March OK, American Indian Movement Indian Territory, NACA-Inspired Schools Network, The Majority, Workers Defense, Bend the Arc, Sunflower Community Action,Center for Popular Democracy, Sunrise Movement, The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, and others.

I’m currently inspired by the live action Lion King and feeling incredibly powerful. But... in saying that, “Remember who you are” is my mantra for tonight’s meditation as I rest. It reminds me of the late and Great Maya Angelou who has always been someone I admire. Greatness lives on. #nipseyhussle #blackman #blackmenmentality #blackmentality #itsamarathon #amarathonmentailty #blackowned #hustlersmentality #hustlequotes #blacklivesmatter #hustlersclub #hustledaily #hardwork #rip #nipseythegreat #nipseyhussle #dedication #motivationalquotes #motivation #supportblackbusiness #salesmotivation #mayaangelou #inspiringquotes

#repost • @cdubbthehost It’s been a year since Nia Wilson’s life was taken. Since her murder Oakland feels different and I’ve haven’t felt a since of security since.
⠀
”Though I think about Nia when I'm crisscrossing the city, it's not the same as keeping her memory alive — that's what her loved ones have tried to do since she was killed. In the last year, Nia's family and friends have not been able to simply move on and resume their normal lives. They've been forced to adapt to a new reality, one where remembering her life and mourning her death doesn't just happen once a year.
⠀
As posts flood my timeline honoring others who've also been ripped away — #PhilandoCastille (July 6, 2016), #SandraBland (July 13, 2015), #EricGarner (July 17, 2017) — I'm thinking more and more about what we do between these anniversaries to honor the memories of those who have been lost.
⠀
As the trial and lawsuit slowly move along, as news cycles rage, and as fresh injustices arise, there's one thing I know for certain: Nia Wilson deserved better. And it's up to all of us to make sure her memory is not forgotten, and her death wasn't in vain.” ❤️🙏🏾

L'écrivain a 14 ans lorsqu'il découvre dans les journaux la photo du visage atrocement mutilé du jeune Emmett Till, 14 ans lui aussi.

En 1955, tout juste débarqué de Chicago, ce dernier est accusé d'avoir sifflé puis lourdement dragué une commerçante blanche dans le Mississippi. Le mari et le beau-frère de celle-ci vont alors, en représailles, torturer pendant des heures puis tuer l'adolescent, avant de balancer son corps dans le fleuve... Marqué par cette histoire horrible, qui va d'ailleurs lancer le début du mouvement des droits civiques pour les personnes noires aux Etats-Unis, John Edgar Wideman décide d'écrire ce roman, à mi-chemin entre investigation, autobiographie et fiction, dans le but de dénoncer l'injustice faite envers la famille Till. 
Car Emmett Till a été tué car il était noir. Tout comme son père Louis a été condamné à mort en Italie à la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale pour viol. Une affaire jugée à la va-vite, un manque de preuves évident, une justice douteuse... L'histoire se répèterait-elle dans la famille Till? Est-ce le racisme qui a condamné les deux hommes?

L'enquête menée par Wideman est passionnante tout autant que révoltante. La lecture de ce livre m'a donné envie d'en savoir plus, et sans trop vous en révéler j'ai été profondément scandalisée par une interview donnée par Carolyn Bryant, la commerçante du Mississippi, donnée en 2007, et vous laisse aller y jeter un oeil une fois le roman terminé. 
Plus que jamais d'actualité, j'ai envie de scander ce slogan: Black Lives Matter!
