💫Today's #wcw is Min Jin Lee, author of Pachinko, a book you just can't put down 🤓. This boss lady writes with such enviable prose and weaves a multi-generational tale of love, loss, faith, survival, and hope. Her stories bring to light female resilience as well as various decades of the immigrant experience. Questioning the idea of nationhood and identity, Lee humanizes the life of the Other and the politically disenfranchised. Thank you @lee_minjin for giving voice to the histories of the often unheard and commonly deemed unimportant 💌

It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's T-time! What is this creature anyway? The origin of its species is unknown, but its name comes from the T-shaped nose typical of its kind. It likes to show up around tea time, and you can usually spot it next to a smoky pot of earl grey and tiny sugar biscuits 🍵🍪 They're hard to come across in the wild, but if you raise your pinky and call its name, it might just come running in its bergamot shoes 👟

#repost of some of @hannahalcorn's favorite things, such as an Uno+Ichi plate giving some serious side-eye to Leonard Koren's Wabi-Sabi 😂

#wcw Miriam Makeba was a South African singer, actor, and civil rights activist. She is known for popularizing several anti-apartheid songs including "Meadowlands" by Strike Vilakezi and "Ndodemnyama we Verwoerd" (Watch out, Verwoerd) by Vuyisile Mini. Her 1967 song “Pata Pata” made her the first black female artist to have a top-ten worldwide hit. Makeba’s appearance in the 1959 anti-apartheid film Come Back, Africa, led her to travel around the world, including through the United States. Her involvement in the film brought her negative attention from the South African government, which received criticism after the film was released. In 1960 she moved to New York City where she recorded her first solo album. She quickly rose to fame in the US, performing for President John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden. While living in the States, Makeba's mother passed away, and upon trying to return to South Africa for the funeral, she found that her South African passport had been cancelled. In 1963 she testified about apartheid to the United Nations, causing South Africa to revoke her citizenship. After being exiled from her home country, Makeba became more outspoken in her criticisms of apartheid and the white minority government. Makeba became increasingly involved with the Black Power Movement and activist work while in the US, where she met Stokely Carmichael. In 1968 Makeba and Carmichael married, sparking controversy in the US and ultimately leading to the cancellation of her record deal and tours. Makeba and Carmichael moved to Guinea, where she continued to perform, mostly in African countries. The dismantling of apartheid in 1990 brought Makeba back to South Africa, and in 1999 she was named a United Nations goodwill ambassador and continued to campaign for humanitarian causes. Her music is still widely listened to today. ✊🏾❤️
