Coincidentally, reading “The Rabbits” (words by John Marsden, illustrations by Shaun Tan) on Easter/Ostara. A different sort of rabbit. Yes, let’s talk about the horrors. Also, I am sharing this more in the vein of the types of topics that need to be covered; how it is done in this book is problematic, especially given the positionality of Marsden as a white Australian author, and panels in the book, such as: “who will save us from the rabbits?” This is a piece that expounds on the ways in which this story is problematic: https://www.lib.latrobe.edu.au/ojs/index.php/tlg/article/view/227/225 However, I do think that there should be carefully crafted children’s books out there on colonialism, with great care for positionality, etc. #therabbits #shauntan #johnmarsden #colonialism #kidswanttoknow #kidsneedtoknow #whosstoryisittotell

Before Kenya was Kenya. The Swahili settlement of Malinda existed when a Kurd explorer wrote about it 300 years before "The Kingdom of Malinde" shown in 1540AD, on the 1st map of the African continent. Conquered by the Sultan of Zanzibar in 1861, it was a slave trade centre until end of the 19th century. . . #BlackExcellence #VoiceOfTheAncestors #weafricannations #darkskin #africa #africancontinent #melaninpoppin #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #colonialism #colonials #colonialafrica #transatlanticslavetrade #blacklove #africanunity #colonialhistory #blackspirituality #moorishhistory #colonialist #blackpeople #africanscience #blackworld #slavery #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople #ancientafrica

British police guard Mau Mau suspects, including children, during the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya, 1953. . The Mau Mau Uprising in Kenya (1952 - 1960) was one of the most brutal episodes of British colonial history, but remains one of the least well known and understood, both in the UK and in Kenya. Historians estimate that there were more than 100 detention camps, works camps and emergency villages set up and operated by the British Colonial Government. This network of camps was used to detain and torture hundreds of thousands of Kenyans with the aim of extracting confessions of allegiance to the #maumau independence movement. .
