Thrown Overboard from a Slave Ship. #MiddlePassage #neverforget

‘Ellen Gallagher. Accidental Records’ at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, on view through 28 January 2018.

Born on this day in 1965, Providence, Rhode Island, Ellen Gallagher returns to and builds upon themes and motifs at the center of her practice in a suite of new works that includes paintings and drawings. These works extend her exploration of the complex histories of the Black Atlantic and the afterlives of the Middle Passage. Widely acclaimed for her own genre of history painting, Gallagher questions accepted geographies. The layered surfaces of her works become a kind of reckoning, evoking, in the artist’s words, ‘the way sailors mark their location at sea, determined by return.’

@Regranned from @alexispeskine - Great photo @clivehol of the talk for my show POWER FIGURES in front of my work Niñeen @octobergallery last Saturday. We had a full house and I am grateful to have been able to share what moves me to create visual poetry whispered by our ancestors.

Happy, Mad, Angry, Upset Empowered,Confused, Inspired, Proud! All the many emotions and much more experienced this weekend when visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture. I’ve see how blacks have cultivated this earth and the US. Blood, sweat and tears since the beginning of time. We went from being the made first under God the creater, to being a fruitful people, to being sold into slavery. In slavery for 400 years in the US to becoming President of the U.S. One thing that will never happen, is that Black men/women will not be broken. I loved this museum. Been to many but this was by far the best. Must see “God created Black people and Black people created style”. ✊🏾✊🏾#NMAAHC #imblackandimproud #phibetasigma #DC #blackhistory #Africa #middlepassage #slavery #reconstruction #emancipationproclamation #civilrightsmovement #brownvsboardofeducation #presidentobama

Mississippi Part III: The Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center is located in what was Jackson Mississippi's oldest black school. They have some phenomenal exhibits. As I was moving around the "Africa to Mississippi" exhibit I came to an opening that was pitch black. It startled me. Then I realized it was a simulation of the inside of a ship our ancestors were forced inside during the Middle Passage. It was eerie. I had to pause before I went inside. It only looks lit because of the flash. #Mississippi #middlepassage #Africa #ancestors #surreal #homage #survivors #originalhumantrafficking #themorethingschange #moreofthesame #neverforget

mississippian girl
with the old growth
the smokey
mountains in your hair
with the long walk in your hips
and the eastern waters in your veins
the tobacco burning far, far
backwards and forwards

The real Trans Atlantic slave trade started with indians not west Africans Mongol natives ain't got no oral history of being shipped to Europe and Africa because this story pertains to the American negro that's currently now the erroneously so-called African American #africanamericansarentafrican #africanamericansaintafrican #Indianslavery #johnelliott #1828definitionofamerican #virginiaact1682 #genealogy #transAtlanticSlavetrade #middlepassage #Johnogilby #arnoldousmontanus #kingPhilipswar #hernandodesoto #fernandodesoto #GeorgeCatlin #jackdforbes

COMMENTARY: 'Colored', 'Negro', 'Black', 'African' 'Atlantic Creole'(Historian Ira Berlin in 1997 coined this sociological term), are just a few names giving the descendants of the Atlantic Slave Trade, but after 500 years what should the descendants of the #MiddlePassage call ourselves? Because, REALITY CHECK, 100% African WE ARE NOT; I KNOW, it gets tricky. Particularly in the last 4 days as American(some ex-pat') #MeghanMarkle has been heralded as the, 'first Black to join the #RoyalFamily' & many people started taking sides. Some people(including herself) view her as "biracial" American, whereby distinguishing her from #Black or #AfricanAmerican. 30 years ago she would have been deemed a Black American in most of the United States, & #GreatBritain, regardless of her father's "racial" background. Why biracial? It's safe. Biracial is a construct of the 21st century, whereby society is once again separating, & categorizing individuals primarily based on phenotype & societal classifications, STEEPED in Colonial RACISM. Where, on the other hand, 21st century genetic genealogy is now lending itself to a methodology that shows America truly is a melted pot. Dna testing, which focuses on our genotype, is a growing fad of pop culture, and one scientific aspect divulges allot about our history and our "co-mingling" society. If we only focus on her race, everyone is wrong. If true, 40% of people so called- Black or African American, based on genetic admixture, would be deemed biracial or even tri-racial ourselves. So how do we begin to DEFINE-if we must, who can call themselves biracial? Is it based on phenotypical, sociological standards and classification or is it based on dna-genotype (our genetic background)? The next Census, should we call ourselves, biracial or eliminate race in it's totality? Great Britain is getting a wake-up call of EVERYDAY, 500 years, and counting, U.S. conversation on race. Because this new spotlight of race relations is coming from on high. They have NEVER had a person of color in such a powerful position and race issues are sweep under the flag. So today The Guardian "TRIED IT" on the race topic.Get over it, change is here-Cheerio!

spent a powerful day walking through the #middlepassage at the @thewrightmuseum with my @westerndreamteam we also experienced the #67rebellion exhibit. we will have workshops and write responses to what we experienced. from tears to indifference, we are all learning. @jessicacaremoor @dreamdirectors @dreamtroittfp

Millennias of selling human beings date back-well, time unknown; Kush, maybe? Earlier? But we have Maritime records that yield proof that the Golden Age of Slave Trading began with the Portuguese in the 15th century in Africa to Europe Route, then the Trans Atlantic in 1492, officially in Colonial Spanish America in 1501. But for most Americans of African heritage our ties to the Middle Passage is , historically 1619, or so the Eurocentric history book paragraph DICTATES-I digress.
1617 West Africa, now 2017 #libya ; first my ancestors and now my descendants(because we are responsible for our young people's future and we are and have been failing them.) I believe people today are more conscious and giving than generations before, but, there is ALWAYS that element that weaves thru the epic perils of time and unbalance the laws of nature-because the devil is real and I am NOT here for the foolishness. What is the plan of action? Boots on the ground or trying to get to the root of why post Colonialism HAS left the house in disarray and no one seems to be cleaning up? I have not a clue. LIBYA is a HOT MESS(as is my Country's backyard)-NIGERIA we watching you TOO . There are countless men and women who will NEVER see their families again. God will us the strength to not destroy humanity and the Earth. #prayersgorafrica #condemnmodernslavery #globalhumantraffickingepidemic #modernslavery #Libyaslavery #middlepassage #12yearsaslave #theamistead #modernafricanslavery #humanrightsviolations #humanitarianactivisit #NATO #united nations #chooseacause #fightforfreedom #lostsouls #bringbackourgirls #africanslavery #libya #humantrafficking #globalhumanitarianissues

On this day in 1781, the crew of the British slave ship 'Zong' massacred 133 slaves, throwing them overboard to drown or be eaten by sharks so the slave owners could claim the insurance money(yes there were slave insurance policies). This atrocity and the trial in London that followed was a major rallying cry for the British abolitionist movement(they succeeded in abolishing the slave trade in 1807, and slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire by 1833). This 1840 painting by JMW Turner is the prolific artists imagining of this terrible event #jmwturner #atmosphericpainting #britishart #slavery #history #slavetrade #middlepassage #history #abolitionistmovement #zongmassacre #libyanslavetrade

PLACES HAVE #KARMA TOO!
The #MiddlePassage is humongous gargantuan #BadKarma! Karma will go to the four corners of the earth to exact her balancing! Most hurricanes that hit the United States begin either in the Caribbean or the Atlantic following the routes of the #AtlanticSlaveTrade. Many of the worst start as seedlings coming off the coast of Africa. It is no accident that almost every hurricane begins off the coast of #Africa!

A depiction of what we looked like as slaves, packed in tight spaces and stacked, to maximize the numbers they were table to transport. This is used by the South Dallas Cultural Center to teach children about the Middle Passage. #sdcc #sdcc2017 #southdallasculturalcenter #southdallas #middlepassage #finearts #slaveship #slavery

Happy Monday! The process matters. It's where God develops the person you need to become to manage the assignment. But, don't allow the growing pains, discomfort, and pressure of the process to convince you to abort the mission. There is a powerhouse woman of God within you waiting to be revealed. Choose her. Fight for her. Endure. Generations to come will thank you for not quitting. #daughtersandvessels

When you happen upon a printmaking experiment from years ago. I made like 3 of these before totally doing something else. “The Manifest Was Short” - was about all the people we lost who were thrown overboard during the middle passage. @nniidetroit has one 👍🏾. #printmaking #printmakers #print #linocut #ink #kings #art #arte #me #artist #detroit #instagram #drawing #flexcut #flexcuttools #flexcutknives #rapture #diaspora #spirit #middlepassage

I honor their #sacrifice with every step I take. I stand in awe of all they've endured. I honor them, putting respect on their names, and in return, my path is guided. Alarms sound. #Coincidence falls away. My questions are answered-ill intent returns to sender. #Connectedness is real. The #Source is the truth, and our ancestors, live still- in everything we do. The #past has a way of correcting the future. #Legacy is everything, and I just want to make them proud. #respeito #laherencia #discernment #mindfulness #spiritual #yorubaancestry #intention #retrograde #alchemyelevated #eyesknow #✨🙏🏾✨#blackgirlmagic #boricua #middlepassage 📸 Jason De Caires Taylor

This week, our classes discussed the Atlantic Slave Trade and the conditions of the Middle Passage. Here is class 713 working in groups to annotate and analyze documents of a slave who survived the journey. Each student could either write a question or post a comment on their post-it then pass the document to the next table. The next group would then be able to answer, agree or disagree and pose their own questions. Excellent work class 713! 🤩✏️💯 #annotation #primarysource #groupwork #middlepassage #atlanticslavetrade #socialstudies #class713 #24doesmore #24prideofgk

I have been studying the slave trade for 15 years and thought I had seen it all until finding this at the Freedom Center: a French slave ship with European men and women picnicking on the back while Africans are sold at the front of the ship. This inextricable union of pleasure and pain speaks volumes about slavery... #slavery #freedom #slaveship #blackstudies #professorslife #cincinnati #blackprofessor #slavetrade #middlepassage #history #blackhistory #education
