Les écrits de James Baldwin mis en images | Le Devoir | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Ils ont été successivement assassinés avant l’âge de 40 ans, dans la longue marche pour la défense des droits des Noirs américains, qui se poursuit encore aujourd’hui. Malcolm X, Medgar Evers et Martin Luther King ont aussi tous trois été amis de l’écrivain noir américain James Baldwin. Baldwin voulait écrire leur histoire dans un livre intitulé Remember this House. Mais il s’est arrêté à la 30e page, avant de mourir en 1987.

Le cinéaste Raoul Peck s’est inspiré de ce projet pour réaliser I Am Not your Negro, essai documentaire qui prend l’affiche au Québec ce vendredi (en avant-première jeudi au Cinéma du Parc dans le cadre des RIDM+) en même temps qu’il est en nomination pour la soirée des Oscar ce dimanche dans la catégorie du meilleur long métrage documentaire...

Ige, Gabbard tweet remembrances for anniversary of internment camp executive order | Hawaiinewsnow | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

After Japanese forces bombed Pearl Harbor and WWII broke out, there was a sense of distrust between the American government and American citizens of Japanese ancestry.
On Feb. 19, 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 which led to thousands of American citizens of Japanese Ancestry being forced into internment camps throughout the U.S. and the Territory of Hawaii.
The measure was said to be in the interest of national security.
Some feared the Japanese-Americans were spies for Japan.
In the months that followed EO9066, over 100,000 Japanese-American citizens, men, women and children, were interned in various camps...

How the US Began Its Empire | The New York Review of Books | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

For decades, anti-imperial thought has been largely absent from public discourse. So has the word “imperialism.” The chief substitute for it has been “internationalism.” The rhetorical shift from imperialism to internationalism suggests a sanitizing process at work during the twentieth century, as the United States moved away from a formal empire based on the occupation of foreign territory to an informal empire based on proxy governments backed by occasional US invasions...

Este escritor, poeta, artista visual y realizador de películas e instalaciones fotográficas que actualmente reside en Buenos Aires, pero que vivió más de cuarenta años en los Estados Unidos, en cuyas universidades de Rhode Island, New York y New Jersey enseñó, es autor de un corpus de obras que mantuvo un sostenido anclaje en Latinoamérica.

Harlem Histories and Boardroom Lessons | NY Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Nearly a century ago, during the Harlem Renaissance, the activist and writer James Weldon Johnson described his neighborhood as “a city within a city, the greatest Negro city in the world.” But he wondered, “Are the Negroes going to be able to hold Harlem?”

“When colored people do leave Harlem,” he wrote, “their homes, their churches, their investments and their businesses, it will be because the land has become so valuable that they can no longer afford to live on it.”...

It seems as if the entire world is on edge, with xenophobia the word of our times, and though it has been long-planned, the United States premiere of “A Man of Good Hope” could hardly be better timed. The musical drama, which begins at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Wednesday, Feb. 15, is based on a book (by Jonny Steinberg) about the true story of Asad Abdullahi, born in Somalia and orphaned as a boy, who trekked to South Africa only to face violence there...

John Edgar Wideman likes to be in places where people don’t know who he is or what he does for a living. He spends most of the year in New York, but two of his favorite people here are his barber and his massage therapist, both Chinese immigrants who barely speak English. He was explaining this to me in December, over a lunch of rare steak-frites and Bordeaux at Lucien, a bistro a few blocks from his Lower East Side apartment...

After Nigeria, the country with the largest population of people of African descent isn’t in Africa at all. It’s Brazil — where slaves vastly outnumbered Portuguese colonists, and where today just over half the population identifies as black or pardo (that is, of mixed racial origin). Unlike in the United States, where the legacy of slavery endures in our binary concepts of “black” and “white,” Brazilians have a flexible...
