Des récifs coralliens menacés par des zones mortes où l'oxygène se fait rare | Sciences et avenir

Des récifs coralliens menacés par des zones mortes où l'oxygène se fait rare | Sciences et avenir | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Les coraux n'en finissent plus de souffrir. Après des épisodes consécutifs de blanchissement de la grande barrière de corail en Australie et la possibilité que les récifs ne puissent pas s’en remettre, ces derniers auraient pu bénéficier d’un peu de repos. Mais non. A l’autre bout du Pacifique, des chercheurs de l'Institut de recherche tropicale du Musée national d'histoire naturelle Smithsonian ont constaté que des récifs coralliens périssaient dans la mer des Caraïbes. Et plus particulièrement ceux de la baie d’Almirante, dans la province de Bocas del Toro au Panama...

The Siege of Chaco Canyon | Indian Country Media Network

The Siege of Chaco Canyon | Indian Country Media Network | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Visiting Chaco Canyon, the pinnacle of the ancient Anasazi civilization, is an experience that makes such a deeply lasting impression on your psyche that it will continue to haunt you in dreams for the rest of your life. This is not the hyperbole of a runaway imagination; this is Chaco Canyon’s intended effect, and it does that job well. Prayers, mysteries and clues are hidden in its landscape, left there for generations far into the future—us—to discover and integrate into our own world.

We need this guidance. Because, greatest of ironies, underneath the Anasazi legacy lies a different kind of wealth, one of oil and gas. And as extraction encroaches closer and closer to this sacred site and all the public and tribal lands surrounding it, a flurry of passionately determined and dedicated individuals are fighting to save it before its annihilation. Some days, that job seems—even to this army of protectors, many of them women—hopelessly naïve. And no wonder; they live with it daily, progress is so slow, and what if they fail? What they, and we, have to remember is: We are a part of something much larger than ourselves...

This Is What It Was Like to Break Into Modeling as a Woman of Color in 1969 | Time

This Is What It Was Like to Break Into Modeling as a Woman of Color in 1969 | Time | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

In October of 1969, a LIFE Magazine cover story explored a noteworthy change underway in the fashion business: women of color were not only more visible than ever as models, but they were also taking charge behind the scenes. In one of the first salvos of a conversation that is still very much ongoing — about how to bring diversity to the fashion world, and why that matters — the women featured in the story were working toward a future where, as the director of one agency put it, "a model agency gets a call for a brunette and can just send over a black girl."

At the time, though progress was still being made, black models still made less than white models simply because they got less work, and per LIFE in 1968 less than 10% of all TV commercials in the U.S. involved any black people at all. And yet, for those on the front lines of change, it was an exciting time — at least that was the experience for Charlene Dash, then 20, one of the models featured in the story (and seen in slides six and seven above)...

Derek Walcott, Poet and Nobel Laureate of the Caribbean, Dies at 87 | New York Times

Derek Walcott, Poet and Nobel Laureate of the Caribbean, Dies at 87 | New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Derek Walcott, whose intricately metaphorical poetry captured the physical beauty of the Caribbean, the harsh legacy of colonialism and the complexities of living and writing in two cultural worlds, bringing him a Nobel Prize in Literature, died early Friday morning at his home near Gros Islet in St. Lucia. He was 87.

His death was confirmed by his publisher, Farrar, Straus and Giroux. No cause was given, but he had been in poor health for some time, the publisher said.

Mr. Walcott’s expansive universe revolved around a tiny sun, the island of St. Lucia. Its opulent vegetation, blinding white beaches and tangled multicultural heritage inspired, in its most famous literary son, an ambitious body of work that seemingly embraced every poetic form, from the short lyric to the epic...

Vibrer en beauté à l'exposition Elias Crespin à Paris | Le Figaro

Vibrer en beauté à l'exposition Elias Crespin à Paris | Le Figaro | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Les espaces historiques de la Maison de l'Amérique latine sont assez alambiqués, suite de recoins et d'ouvertures qui compliquent le travail des peintres et des sculpteurs par leur manque de recul et de perspective. Avec cette onctuosité toute sud-américaine, le Vénézuélien Elias Crespin, né en 1965 à Caracas, n'en a cure, qui tire profit de chaque once d'air. L'obstacle crée l'artiste, à mi-chemin entre le magicien et l'ingénieur spatial, qui y décline ses formes et ses calculs, comme on se libère en marchant. Son cortège de 16 œuvres légères et animées transforme ce sous-sol si parisien en un monde éternellement changeant à la Solaris de feu Andreï Tarkovski (1972). Mirage, prodige, illusion, bonheur. Le public jubile...

Derek Walcott, l’auteur d’« Omeros », laisse une œuvre méconnue | Le Monde | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Le poète et dramaturge Derek Walcott, Prix Nobel de littérature en 1992, est mort le vendredi 17 mars à son domicile de Sainte-Lucie des suites d’une longue maladie. Il avait 87 ans.

C’est à Castries, sur l’île caribéenne de Sainte Lucie, alors sous domination britannique, que Derek Walcott voit le jour, le 23 janvier 1930, au sein d’une famille métisse, appartenant à la minorité méthodiste. Il y grandit aux côtés de son frère jumeau et de sa sœur. Leur père, amateur de peinture et de poésie, meurt à l’âge de 31 ans ; leur mère doit subvenir seule aux besoins de la famille. Le jeune Derek, après s’être essayé à la peinture, se lance dans l’écriture...

White Artist Behind Controversial Emmett Till Painting Asks Museum To Remove Her Work | Huffingtonpost

White Artist Behind Controversial Emmett Till Painting Asks Museum To Remove Her Work | Huffingtonpost | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Dana Schutz, the white artist behind a controversial painting of Emmett Till that appeared at this year’s Whitney Biennial, has issued a letter to the museum, asking that the institution take down her work.

“Though it was not at all my intention to cause harm, many artists have come forward to announce that my depiction of suffering is in turn causing them suffering,” Schutz wrote. “I cannot rightly protect a painting at the expense of human beings.”

Schutz’s painting, “Open Casket,” depicts the abstracted face of 14-year-old Till, a black teenager who was lynched in 1955 after being falsely accused of harassing a white woman. The work is based on images of Till at his open-casket funeral decades ago, which were later published in the black publication “Jet” magazine. In those photos ― and in Schutz’s painting ― Till’s face appears brutally mutilated, the horrific violence enacted upon him on open display...

L’oeuvre de la Montréalaise Lorena Gale « Angélique » s’inspire du théâtre documentaire (à partir de transcriptions d’épreuves), de la poésie et de la prose pour enquêter sur les années qui ont précédé l’exécution de Marie-Joseph Angélique, une femme noire asservie qui a été exécutée publiquement accusée d’avoir incendié Montréal en 1734. Utilisant la Nouvelle-France comme toile de fond, cette pièce est aussi un miroir du Montréal contemporain. L’auteure voulait ainsi refléter « l’intempérance du racisme systémique dans la société »...[VIDEO]

Roman : « La porte du ciel » dépeint une Amérique en Noirs et Blancs | JeuneAfrique.com | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Dans « La porte du ciel », Dominique Fortier imagine l'histoire d'Eleanor, fille de médecin, et d'Ève, jeune esclave que la famille d'Eleanor a recueillie. Elles grandissent ensemble dans les plantations de coton du vieux Sud américain alors que se dessine, puis éclate, la guerre de Sécession.

Si le décor et l’intrigue annoncent une grande fresque historique dans la lignée d’Autant en emporte le vent, la Québécoise Dominique Fortier s’affranchit vite de ces codes. La trajectoire des deux héroïnes est entrecoupée d’autres histoires, formant un patchwork où les personnages, noirs ou blancs, la chronologie et le mode de narration changent sans cesse, au point de déboussoler le lecteur…

Por la cárcel Cabildo pasaron más de 200 presas políticas.

La colocación de la placa es una de las acciones mediante las que el Estado uruguayo reconoce el período de terrorismo de Estado que vivió el país entre el 13 de junio de 1968 y el 28 de febrero de 1985, y cumple con el reconocimiento y la reparación a las víctimas determinados por la Ley 18.596.

For 50 years, the Ebony Fashion Fair shaped a new vision of black America through contemporary fashion. Founded by Eunice Walker Johnson in 1958, the traveling fashion show broke the color barrier to bring the pinnacle of global fashion to communities that were eager to celebrate black accomplishment, aspiration and success.

The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum present the story of the Ebony Fashion Fair and its cultural impact with the new exhibition “Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair.” Forty garments selected from a collection of thousands are at the center of this dynamic show—including stunning gowns, feathered coats and statement designs by Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood and burgeoning designer Naeem Khan, who would go on to dress first lady Michelle Obama...
