Linguist's 'big data' research supports waves of migration into the Americas | Archaeology News Network | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

University of Virginia linguistic anthropologist Mark A. Sicoli and colleagues are applying the latest technology to an ancient mystery: how and when early humans inhabited the New World.

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]

The Harlem Renaissance’s New Chapter | New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

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

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...

Andrew Jackson lay gasping in his bed at home in Tennessee, the lead slugs in his body at long last having their intended effect. It was the spring of 1845 and “Old Hickory”—hero of the War of 1812 and the nation’s seventh president, born 250 years ago, on March 15, 1767—was finally dying after so many things and people had failed to kill him...

Curators from Cuba invited to organize exhibition in Collaboration with the Bronx Museum | Art Daily | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is presenting Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje, an exploration of contemporary Cuban art from the 1970s to the present that looks at how Cuban artists both on the island and abroad have grappled with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience. Bringing together over 60 works by more than 30 artists from the Bronx Museum collection and other U.S. institutions and private collections, the exhibition features many artworks that are being publicly exhibited for the first time, including a newly commissioned sculpture and performance by Humberto Díaz as the culmination of a three-month residency at the Bronx Museum, and works by Belkis Ayón, Abel Barroso, José Bedia, Alejandro Campins, Los Carpinteros, Carlos Garaicoa, Kcho, Glenda León, Ana Mendieta, Diana Fonseca Quiñones, Eduardo Ponjuán, Wilfredo Prieto, Sandra Ramos, Esterio Segura, Meira Marrero and José Angel Toirac, and others.

On view through July 3, the exhibition is organized by the Bronx Museum and by Corina Matamoros and Aylet Ojeda Jequín, Curators of Contemporary Cuban Art at El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA) in Havana, as part of a multi-year collaboration between the Bronx Museum and the MNBA to foster artistic and cultural exchange between Cuba and the United States...

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...

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.”...
