At ReelAbilities, the Story of the Blind Boys of Alabama | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

“How Sweet the Sound: The Blind Boys of Alabama” tells the story of the Grammy-winning gospel group, which goes back a very long way — the Blind Boys released their first single in 1948. The film, the closing-night feature on Wednesday, March 8, at JCC Manhattan’s ReelAbilities Film Festival, relates how the original members came together in the 1930s at an Alabama school for deaf or blind black students. But they almost didn’t get off the ground: Early on, their...

Skulls reveals that ancient Americans didn’t mix with neighbours | New Scientist

Skulls reveals that ancient Americans didn’t mix with neighbours | New Scientist | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

It’s a real head-scratcher. The shapes of human skulls from a narrow strip in Mexico reveal that first arrivals to the Americas may have kept to themselves, even when there were no geographical barriers that would have prevented them mixing.
Genetic studies have begun to unravel the complex story of the earliest American settlers, but archaeological studies can provide important details too – particularly the careful study of human skull shape. This is influenced by someone’s genetic history: when two populations...

Après avoir traité dernièrement du génocide en Namibie à travers les yeux d’Eben et de la maltraitance infantile à travers la jeune Eva, Élise Fontenaille nous parle maintenant du massacre des Taïnos, peuple paisible et prospère, par la voix de Guaracuya, 15 ans.
Sur une île paradisiaque des Caraïbes (composée aujourd’hui d’Haïti et de Saint-Domingue), les indiens Taïnos vivent dans un environnement luxuriant et chatoyant, dirigés par leur reine bien-aimée, la douce Anacaona. Leur monde n’est que paix et douceur de vivre, ponctué le soir par les rites sacrés et offrandes aux Zémis, leurs dieux bienveillants...

The Political Cartoon That Explains the Battle Over Reconstruction | Smithsonian

The Political Cartoon That Explains the Battle Over Reconstruction | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

In March 1867, it had been nearly two years since the end of the Civil War—but the bloodshed was far from over. Massacres of African-Americans in southern states had continued unabated, and the federal government was locked in its own bloodless battles over how to repair a country split in two. But on March 2, 1867, Congress passed what historian Heather Richardson calls “one of the most important pieces of legislation in history”: the Military...

The Incredible Legacy of Susan La Flesche, the First Native American to Earn a Medical Degree | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

When 21-year-old Susan La Flesche first stepped off the train in Philadelphia in early October 1886, nearly 1,300 miles from her Missouri River homeland, she’d already far surpassed the country’s wildest expectations for a member of the so-called “vanishing race.” Born during the Omaha’s summer buffalo hunt in June 1865 in the northeast corner of the remote Nebraska Territory, La Flesche graduated second in her class from the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in Virginia, now...

Gorgeous comic book gives Afro-Brazilian mythology the Avengers treatment | Kill Screen | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

A lot of nerd culture is dominated by Anglo mythology. From Thor to Lord of the Rings or even Harry Potter, the creators and cultural heroes in the community only. There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m as crazy for Viking mythology as the next girl. But far from just a disservice to African or Asian or Middle Eastern, this blind spot is a much bigger diservice to nerds everywhere. There is a huge well of awesome mythology that has gone untapped, with epic characters and stories that would make even the most dignified comic book fan salivate. That’s where Brazilian artist Hugo Canuto comes in, who...

Tattooing Was Illegal in New York City Until 1997 | Smithsonianmag

Tattooing Was Illegal in New York City Until 1997 | Smithsonianmag | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

In 1961, it officially became illegal to give someone a tattoo in New York City. But Thom deVita didn’t let this new restriction deter him from inking people. The day after it was put into law, the tattoo artist quietly opened the doors of his tattoo shop in Alphabet City, then one of the grittiest neighborhoods in the area. He limited himself to just five clients per day, working late at night when many other people were asleep. While these may seem like temporary measures for such a vibrant city that seldom sleeps, it wouldn’t be until 1997—36 years later—that it would finally lift the ban.

This is just one of the many interesting facets of the city’s storied ink history covered in “Tattooed New York,” an exhibition dedicated to epidermal art and its history that is on display through April 30 at the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library. The show contains more than 250 objects, artworks, photographs, videos and other documents stretching from the early 1700s to now, including Thomas Edison's electric pen, the percusor to the tattoo gun, and a Norman Rockwell oil painting of a man getting inked...

In 1908, Texan Jack Johnson (1878–1946) defeated Canadian Tommy Burns to become the first African American world heavyweight boxing champion. Admired for quick footwork and defensive acumen, the man known as the "Galveston Giant" retained the heavyweight title from 1908 to 1915. Johnson's success in the ring made him an international celebrity in his day. Sadly, today there are many people who haven't heard of him.
