#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.
Hoping this project raises awareness about the injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism.
#DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.
beautiful project !

And while we can appreciate the beauty and art of what we call ‘designer’ chairs throughout history and today, when all is said and done, what matters is that we have a place to rest our bones.”

In Cameroon, human rights advocates are calling for justice after an outspoken gay rights activist was found tortured and killed in his home last week. Eric Lembembe was executive director of the human rights group CAMFAIDS and had published a report this year on people harassed and punished under Cameroon’s anti-gay law. Gay rights lawyers say the latest incident illustrates the insecurity under which LGBT people live in Cameroon. FSRN’s Ngala Killian Chimtom reports from Yaounde.

why do we act like our minds and rationality and objectivity are the most important things? have our reasons not failed us before? have our theories and even scientific justifications not slapped us in the face before? do they not consistently fail? what gives birth to routine, to systems that are…
