@BigAngBlack @blackmastodon @BlackMastodon Fun to see Tabu Ley on there. Pretty sure I've posted him in the MusicFromTheMotherland thread.

@BigAngBlack Its always under . I mostly post that on Fridays when I feel up to it. I probably posted him last fall.

I posted two previous panel discussions on Alternatives to Policing that were happening in Detroit. The third one is April 17th and focuses on community groups and what actions they are taking to help create safety. I'm attaching the flyer for the program.

@Ricardus I believe they are all recorded and posted. You can check to see if you can find the first two from last year.

I've posted Sona Jobarteh before but I got a chance to see her live on Sunday. What a fabulous show! Posting a duet with my 2nd favorite kora player, Ballake Sissoko. Also Sona started a school to help decolonize education in the Gambia. She talked about it at length during the show. The second link is on the school and what she is trying to accomplish.

@ernie What a great documentary. That game was played for many hours in my household. My children loved it. I almost always died right away 😆

@Snowshadow @GottaLaff You all should come to DC cause the person taking your picture will make a face and say "do you really want THAT picture?" 😆 So you re-take.

@Snowshadow @GottaLaff That is hilarious. If you all look like serial killers how will the media be able to falsely accuse folks of being serial killers?!

I was watching our partial eclipse yesterday with my daughter in a local area. There's a row of food shops, cleaners, credit union and nail salons where we were sitting. The employees were getting permission to come outside and see the eclipse but of course none of them had any eye protection. We signaled for them to come over and share ours. In about 10 minutes we were surrounded by workers from four different ethnic groups. 1/5

#BlackMastodon #BlackTwitter #Abolition #Communities #OurFutures We were a group of Black American, Asian, Latino, and various Africans . It was a wonderful and heart warming experience. You may be asking yourself what this has to do with #abolition. But it was the beauty of the human community coming together to experience something phenomenal that made it relevant to #abolition. There is a new series on PBS that also is not about #abolition but has everything to do with it. 2/5

fulanigirl,
@fulanigirl@blacktwitter.io avatar

#BlackMastodon #BlackTwitter #Abolition #Communities #OurFutures The series is called: A Brief History of the Future. The host of the show presents the idea that we have moved into being a society that just plans for today without thought to the consequences our actions today will have on our future families. He sets off to talk to people around the world who are trying to envision the world they want for their great grandchildren and then talking steps TODAY to help build it. 3/5

@fulanigirl@blacktwitter.io avatar

#BlackMastodon #BlackTwitter #Abolition #Communities #OurFutures You can stream the series if you are a PBS contributor or just wait for it to air in your area. He and the activists he interviews share a common thought. You have to envision the world you want and then build it. That’s what my daughter and I were doing. We envision a world where people treat each other as humans no matter what they look like or where they come from. That is the #bolitionist goal. 4/5

#BlackMastodon #BlackTwitter #Abolition #Communities #OurFutures We want a world where people are free from the Prison Industrial complex (including a corrupted criminal legal system), from predatory capitalism and free to live in safe wholesome communities where our future families can thrive. Everywhere people are trying to envision what that might look like and to take steps TODAY to help make that reality come into fruition. We are envisioning a new world so that we can help build it. 5/5

Bad news for blundering right-wing operative Jacob Wohl — he now has to pay $1.25 mil for a racist robocall voter suppression scheme, as part of an agreement with NY AG Letitia James.

Because they bring me such joy, I will share with you all the software testing videos I share with my Software Design and Development students.

Video 1/3: “We don’t need user testing! We already know our users”

Children at a playground completely ignoring the slide, and sliding down the smooth hill upon which the slide is mounted

@inthehands all three were hilarious. Thanks for posting. These videos answer so many questions.

In the U.S.: Got eclipse glasses?

@fulanigirl@blacktwitter.io avatar

@popcornreel Definitely have glasses. Ordered them early and outfitted the whole family! We have a NOAA division nearby and they always have a big eclipse watching in front of their building. Lots of fun being with science people at such an event.

For folks in the DMV who are interested in the political/economic reasons for much of the chaos in West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso), you have to know about the currency imposed upon them by the French at independence. This film is fantastic. Saw it during the New African Film Fest and there is a special showing April 8 at Sankofa book store in DC. Q&A with the director:

@GreenFire Exactly. And this is a problem among the Black extreme left who celebrate when armed coups kick out Western aid. Here I'm not arguing that the west is good, but these groups fail to recognize or even consider the fact that the Russian Wagner group is supplying much of the military might behind these coups. And the Wagner soldiers routinely kill women and children in Africa.

@amerika @GreenFire Before I block you I want you to be educated. Ukraine is a country. Africa is a continent. It has 54 countries.

@TurtleJoe @GottaLaff There are many cult leaders in the world, for example the one in Nigeria that last year convinced people to starve themselves to death,. For those of us in the US of a certain age Jim Jones was our introduction into what cult leaders were and the damage they could do. Feel free to compare him to whatever cult leader strikes your fancy. In the end they are all deadly.
