Two days after the “Bloody Sunday” march in 1965, when African-American protesters in Selma, Ala., were battered by police on national television, Martin Luther King Jr. led another march across the same bridge.
Among those at that second march was Henry Hampton, a 24-year-old official with the Unitarian Universalist...

Maya pendant a puzzle to archaeologists | Past Horizons | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

To say that UC San Diego archaeologist Geoffrey Braswell was surprised to discover a precious jewel in Nim Li Punit in southern Belize is something of an understatement.
“It was like finding the Hope Diamond in Peoria instead of New York,” said Braswell, who led the dig that uncovered a large piece of carved jade once belonging to an ancient Maya king. “We would expect something like it in one of the big cities of the Maya world...

Mexican Village Art Colors Their World | New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Like many residences in this woodsy land of Modernist architecture, the house Alan Goldberg designed in 1977 for his wife, Gertrude Schaffner Goldberg, and their children was conceived as a serene, minimalist paradise.

That was before they started negotiating rocky trails to remote Mexican villages in pursuit of ceramic mermaids, funeral processions made of corn husks, and other folk art. Their exuberant collection by 86 known artists quickly subsumed their once-pristine house...

Why Maya Angelou Matters More Than Ever | Time

Why Maya Angelou Matters More Than Ever | Time | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

There was one important rule to keep in mind if you stayed at Maya Angelou's house: Don't startle her in the middle of the night. Angelou, who died in 2014 and lived alone in the latter decades of her life, liked to feel safe at night, and for a girl who grew up in the segregated south of St. Louis, Mo., and Stamps, Ark., feeling safe eventually meant sleeping with a gun under her pillow.

That was something Rita Coburn Whack, the co-director of the new American Masters documentary on the life of Angelou, And Still I Rise, had to keep in mind when she would spend nights at Angelou's home while working on the film. Angelou may have been known to the world for her writing, but she was known to her family and other intimates for her extraordinary cooking. Late at night, long after dinner, Whack would sometimes get a craving for one more taste of that night's meal—but she'd keep that gun in mind...

Plus aucun « nègres » dans la toponymie du Québec, mais pas beaucoup de Noirs | RCI Net

Plus aucun « nègres » dans la toponymie du Québec, mais pas beaucoup de Noirs | RCI Net | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Pour ce qui est d’aller de l’avant et d’adopter une toponymie plus sympathique aux exploits des personnalités noires de l’histoire du Québec, certains seraient tentés de croire que la Commission se traîne les pieds et voudraient lui tirer l’oreille.

Des Montréalais, qui souhaitent une plus grande reconnaissance des Noirs, lui ont soumis une liste d’une cinquantaine de personnalités noires.

La Commission apprécie l’initiative, mais affirme que la tâche s’annonce plus délicate que de coutume, car elle doit faire une plus grande place non seulement aux Noirs, mais aussi aux Autochtones et aux femmes. La Commission prévient donc qu’il s’agit d’un processus long et complexe...[VIDEO]

Black History Month this year brings with it a significant addition to the history of African-American literature: “Amiable With Big Teeth,” a “lost” novel by the notable Harlem Renaissance writer Claude McKay.

In 2009, Jean-Christophe Cloutier, now an assistant professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania, was working toward his Ph.D. at Columbia University when he came across a double-spaced manuscript that appeared to be by McKay among the archived papers of Samuel Roth, a publisher who had often found himself in First Amendment battles...

Muslims Were Banned From the Americas as Early as the 16th Century | Smithsonian mag | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

On Christmas Day, 1522, 20 enslaved Muslim Africans used machetes to attack their Christian masters on the island of Hispaniola, then governed by the son of Christopher Columbus. The assailants, condemned to the grinding toil of a Caribbean sugar plantation, killed several Spanish and freed a dozen enslaved Native Americans in what was the first recorded slave revolt in the New World.

The uprising was quickly suppressed, but it prompted the newly crowned Charles V of Spain to exclude from the Americas “slaves suspected of Islamic leanings.” He blamed the revolt on their radical ideology rather than the harsh realities of living a life of slavery....

With Patents or Without, Black Inventors Reshaped American Industry | Smithsonian mag

With Patents or Without, Black Inventors Reshaped American Industry | Smithsonian mag | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

America has long been the land of innovation. More than 13,000 years ago, the Clovis people created what many call the “first American invention” – a stone tool used primarily to hunt large game. This spirit of American creativity has persisted through the millennia, through the first American patent granted in 1641 and on to today.

One group of prolific innovators, however, has been largely ignored by history: black inventors born or forced into American slavery. Though U.S. patent law was created with color-blind language to foster innovation, the patent system consistently excluded these inventors from recognition...
