Population boom preceded early farming in North America | Archaeology News Network | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

University of Utah anthropologists counted the number of carbon-dated artifacts at archaeological sites and concluded that a population boom and scarce food explain why people in eastern North America domesticated plants for the first time on the continent about 5,000 years ago."Domesticated plants and animals are part of our everyday lives, so much so that we take them for granted," says Brian Codding, senior author of the study...

‘Olympic Pride, American Prejudice’ Recalls Black Athletes in 1936 | The New York Times

‘Olympic Pride, American Prejudice’ Recalls Black Athletes in 1936 | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

The Olympic Games have never been immune from politics, and they certainly weren’t in 1936, when Berlin was the host city and Hitler sought to present the Third Reich in a flattering light. That the United States thwarted him is largely because of the black athletes who receive their due in Deborah Riley Draper’s deft and comprehensive documentary “Olympic Pride, American Prejudice.” As the movie makes clear, racial politics played a major role, both domestically and...

How Artists Change the World | The New York Times

How Artists Change the World | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

As usual, there were a ton of artists and musicians at the political conventions this year. And that raises some questions. How much should artists get involved in politics? How can artists best promote social change?
One person who serves as a model here was not an artist but understood how to use a new art form. Frederick Douglass made himself the most photographed American of the 19th century, which is kind of amazing.
