It might be easy to mistake Lia Lee’s business for a food truck. It’s a big, light-pink vehicle that looks a bit like a place you buy a cupcake, but it’s something entirely different.

Owner Lia Lee sells trendy clothing and accessories out of the truck she calls Street Boutique in the Washington, D.C., area. Wherever she parks and opens her doors, the store’s open.

Street Boutique represents a new type of business popping up around the country. Over the past few years, hundreds of women — and some men — from fashion students to longtime retail workers who want to open their own stores, have launched trucks to sell clothing in every region of the U.S.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENING IN HONG KONG NOW

This video is made by Crixus Yuen, I don’t own anything.

————————————————————————————————————-

I am a Hong Konger, and we hold a pro-democracy protest to fight for the freedom we deserved. However, Hong Kong Police uses violence including tear gas and GUN to stop us, even though we did it in a peaceful way. Lots of people got hurt, INCLUDING THE ELDERLY AND TEENAGERS.

WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHT AND WE DONT DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT

It doesnt matter if you are a Hong Konger or not.  If you support us to fight for our freedom. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO.

The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.

Ferguson is deliberately violating both the laws and its own policies to prevent any information from being produced and made public that could be used to hold Officer Wilson to account for his actions.

Artist and photographer Nakeya B. often uses her striking, minimalist, yet bright, direct style of photography to explore the deeply personal relationship many black women have with their hair, particularly within societal context. The images, while serene in their mood are often jarring in their familiarity. Each image can invoke a different memory for a black woman viewer. The images also deconstruct the performance of heternormative notions of femininity that are entrenched in Western beauty standards in the literal sense through performance, an interesting paradox. These standards, of course, affect black women in a very unique way and are embedded into our psyches from a young age. In her artist statement, Nakeya B. talks about why she employs photography and performance as her mediums.

My photographs examine the multiplicity of African –American hair through presenting it in various states whether braided, weaved, straightened, or natural. I am intrigued by its ability to communicate dual messages about a woman’s relationship to herself and to society at large. I often employ the female figure and feminine objects to render representations of black feminality and explore the changing language of beauty. Through past memories and personal observations, I use photography to examine how the racialized notion of beauty shape self-perception from a black feminist context.

Rap is done. I love hip-hop, I love rap, but the thing it was supposed to do it doesn’t do anymore. It’s not doing the social work it’s supposed to do anymore.

NPR’s Michel Martin was invited by St. Louis Public Radio to moderate an intensely emotional community conversation around race, police tactics and leadership.

Rev. Willis Johnson, the pastor of Wellspring Church, hosted a community conversation Thursday night that drew about 200 people to the church. In welcoming the audience, Johnson acknowledged he’s “gone from feeling hurt, to wanting to hurt,” but he said he hoped the event would be a step to healing a “community in trauma.”
