Looking for inspiration for a future exhibit I would love to curate utilizing the rich archival materials I’ve collected while writing my book #africanamericansindenmark Joy Out if Fire by @fireleibaez used two photographs from the collection of Regina Andrews—the subject of my biography. #reginaandersonandrews #reginaanderson #reginaandrews #schomburgcenter

New York City: I’m so happy to announce the friends & colleagues of mine who have agreed to join me in conversation next week around my book!

i wanted to write
a poem
that rhymes
but revolution doesn't lend
itself to be-bopping

then my neighbor
who thinks i hate
asked – do you ever write
tree poems – i like trees
so i thought
i'll write a beautiful green tree poem
peeked from my window
to check the image
noticed that the school yard was covered
with asphalt
no green – no trees grow
in manhattan

then, well, i thought the sky
i'll do a big blue sky poem
but all the clouds have winged
low since no-Dick was elected

so i thought again
and it occurred to me
maybe i shouldn't write
at all
but clean my gun
and check my kerosene supply

perhaps these are not poetic
times
at all. #nikkigiovanni #blackpanther #blacklivesmatter #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poems #poetrycommunity #poetryisnotdead #schomburgcenter #nyc #harlem

Repost from @museumofcityny using @RepostRegramApp - As the first black woman in New York to receive a medical degree—and only the third woman nationwide—Dr. Susan Smith McKinney-Steward was definitely a 19th-century rebel woman. Among many accomplishments, she opened her own medical offices in Brooklyn and Manhattan and was politically active in the city, helping to found the Equal Suffrage League in Brooklyn and the Women's Loyal Union, New York's leading black women's club. So notable were here achievements that civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois delivered her eulogy in 1918 at Green-Wood Cemetery. Learn more about her story in #RebelWomenNY, now on view.
