  • #RIP
August 26, 1918 – February 24, 2020

Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who was one of NASA's human "computers" and an unsung hero of the space agency's early days, died Monday. She calculated the flight path for America's first crewed space mission and moon landing, and she was among the women profiled in the book and movie Hidden Figures. She was 101.

  • Today in Black History, Katherine G. Johnson passed away this morning (2/24/20). I'm so glad she is one Black historical figure who was recognized and honored while she was alive. NASA mathematician, trailblazer in the quest for racial equality, contributor to our nation’s first triumphs in human spaceflight and champion of STEM education, Katherine G. Johnson stands among NASA’s most inspirational figures. ·

  • RIP to the #HiddenFigure Katherine Johnson who passed away this morning at the age of 101. She was a trailblazer for African American women at NASA whose legacy and journey was captured in the 2016 film, Hidden Figures (character played by @tarajiphenson). She may no longer be with us on earth, but her name will forever be written among the stars!

"In her 33 years at NASA, Johnson broke the barriers of race and gender, showing generations of young people that everyone can excel in math and science and reach for the stars." - President Obama

  • Whew chile, the ghetto! 🤦🏾‍♀️ This is exactly why you do not buy a boyfriend lavish gifts.  There’s levels to this gift giving!  Great idea for a husband but NOT a boyfriend, hell nah! NEVER.  In fantasy world, she is building him up to be a successful man and in return she gets his love, loyalty, and commitment..welp over in the real world she just signed off on his level up certificate to become better for the next woman (only if he plays his cards right but clearly he has a slave mentality). -

Her: “I brought you a rental property.” Homeboys: “Ayyee, she brought him a rental property. “Now that’s a real boss chick.” Him: “I’m not fixing this shit up.” Also Him: “Dog, I wanted like a Rolex, chain, something a f*ckin rental property.” Her to the crowd: “See what I tell you.” Homeboys: “You got a home n*gga, rent it out.” -

The moral of this story is..you do not have to show off your “boss chick” status to a man. That’s masculine energy girl so cut it out! Also, “the goal is to become RICH, not to look rich.” Most people will never become wealthy because they waste too much money on buying symbols of success that depreciate over time. They are more focused on LOOKIING rich instead of BECOMING rich.  And one last thing, only entertain men that know the value of property, land, and legacy 🏡. A man that is financial responsible.  Trust me, in the long run it will determine if your family eat or struggle.

  • Elise Swopes⁠⠀
"the self-taught photographer and graphic designer has used her business savvy to spin influencer marketing on Instagram into a full-fledged career. Her work has allowed her to vacation with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, eat delicious vegetarian meals in exotic locales like Dubai and Tokyo, and meld art with a message that has an ability to reach millions.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Her artistic process begins with expansive cityscape taken while piloting drones, scaling skyscrapers, or hanging out of helicopters. She then transforms the original image, bringing photos to life with her fingers. Taking inspiration from Mother Nature, she uses water and light as a paintbrush; snow turns into speckles, street lamps become glowing orbs, and water droplets take on abstract forms as she edits on the go using an array of mobile apps.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Her most popular creations bring a fantastic magical realism to Chicago’s landscape as she manipulates the everyday into something from another world. For a partnership with Method, she envisions Lake Michigan as basin to wash your hands, the sun as a juicy slice of orange, and soap bubbles as a biosphere encapsulating a miniature city. Her signature giraffe brings whimsy — and a distorted sense of scale —  to the most unexpected settings.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
While almost everyone has a phone, not everyone makes art with it. Swopes is determined to change that by making her methods accessible. She takes the mystery out of creating magic through her Swopes So Dope podcast, Swopes Note newsletter, and tutorial video channel. She’s worked extensively with technology companies like Adobe and Apple to motivate a new generation of photographers.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In her lessons, she preaches the sublime serendipity of allowing yourself to take risks rather than trying to fit into preconceived notions of what a photo should look like. She encourages young artists to look past the details and focus on the big picture, and to embrace ideas rather than an impossible ideal of perfection."⁠⠀

  • Oklahoma Will Require Its Schools to Teach the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921

Oklahoma’s Education Department is adding the 1921 Tulsa race massacre to its curriculum for the first time, in what doubles as a contingency to stop the tragedy’s centennial from devolving into a pile-on of the state’s failure to fully reckon with the tragedy. CNN reports that the decision was announced on Wednesday, with State Senator Kevin Matthews describing the 99-year-old killings as “Tulsa’s dirty secret.” Students from elementary through high school will be required to learn about them starting this fall. A pilot program run by Tulsa Public Schools has provided the blueprint for how the incident will be taught, and helped administrators develop tools and resources to ensure that teachers are comfortable teaching it. Until now, lessons about the massacre have been inconsistent — some schools taught it, some didn’t. Its universalization this week marks something of a turnaround in how its centrality to Oklahoma’s history is understood there.

  • Verdict: 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⠀
//
When we think of feminism, what usually comes to mind is the suffragette movement, equal pay and abortion; themes that have traditionally epitomised the struggle for women to fight for their rights. Hood Feminism shows us that the Eurocentric embodiment of feminism needs an overhaul to include rights for more than just elite, White women.
//
Mikki Kendall brings an entirely different and refreshing dynamic to intersectional feminism. In this series of essays, she sheds light on the social issues that affect women and how the work of mainstream feminism is counterproductive to those causes. The chapter that stood out for me the most was about gun violence and the fear that marginalised Americans experience from the way these weapons are wielded against them for control and power instead of being used for protection of civilians. More chillingly, Kendall cites the statistics that result in the deaths of Black American women and the daily trauma experienced by girls that impacts them in their later years. Other topics in the book cover housing, education, hunger, eating disorders, social mobility and politics.
//
The overarching message is that feminism needs to move beyond tokenistic inclusion and virtue signalling by acting on its messaging of ‘equality for all’. Kendall quite incredibly exposes how arguments made by some feminists serve to uphold the White supremacist patriarchy so that those women, too, may have the privilege of partaking in that same racial oppression. From that context, everything falls in place.
//
Mikki Kendall writes with an acute clarity and authenticity that’s often very difficult to find. Hood Feminism speaks about a plethora of social issues that won’t just be relevant to feminists but makes for essential reading for anyone who cares about justice and oppression in society today. //
Thanks to @bloomsburypublishing for gifting Hood Feminism. The book will be released on 25th Feb. Check the link in my bio for more of why I loved this book.

  • Is it clichè to say he’s my best friend? 👩‍👦

Energy is one of the most powerful forms of communication, babies can read moods without you even saying a word. No matter give off the best energy with your little one because these are the most important moments of his/her life.
