Willie Lynch. 

Jesus

And ain’t this the same shit going on today? Throwing black men in prison and forcing black women to raise babies by themselves? Willie Lynch ain’t dead, he just got a new face same as Jim Crow.

Smh.

Although it’s doubtful that this is a real historical document, even if it is real it’s still stupid. Slave owners published a lot of silly manuals about how to psychologically subordinate enslaved black people. Most of them were bullshit because they were based on unfounded and stupid ideas that whites held about black people. In truth, the only way to subordinate enslaved black people has been though violence and force. For instance, I read this one manual that said that if you introduce Christianity to your slaves it will make them content with slavery. When the fact is that Christianity was appropriated by enslaved black people to light their desire for freedom even more.
That being said, black women (as a collective group) do not raise black boys to be infantile and weak-minded men. This excerpt suggests that black women “emasculate” black men themselves (and white people just need to sit back and reap the benefits). Which sounds a lot like the Moynihan Report of 1965. 

This actually is a real historical document. The Willie Lynch Letters are real and terrifying. ITS. DISGUSTING. I was getting enraged with every sentence.  

I don’t think the Willie Lynch letters are real. There’s a lot of evidence to suggest they’re not. It was more likely written in the 20th century.

Fatoumata Diabaté: Sutiki, la nuit est à nous”.

Started in Bamako, Mali, in 2004, Fatoumata Diabaté birthed this project out of an idea to capture how young African women express themselves through their choices of contemporary clothing. Diabaté aims to continue this project across several cities both in Africa and around the world.

Born in 1980 in Bamako, Mali, Fatoumata Diabaté received her initial experience at the Promo Femmes audio visual training centre before joining the Photography Training Centre (Centre de formation en photographie – CFP) in Bamako between 2002 and 2004. She continued her education with a one month internship at the vocational learning centre (Centre d enseignement professionnel) in Vevey, Switzerland and has participated in numerous workshops both in Mali and abroad.

She has participated in several group exhibitions (Bamako Encounters 2005, 2009 and 2011; Kornhaus Museum of Bern in Switzerland, etc.) and had several solo exhibitions (Festival of Visages francophones de Cahors, France; the Malians of Montreuil, outside the walls of the quai Branly museum, etc.)

She has reported for World Press Photo, Oxfam, Rolex. In December 2005, she received the Africa in creation prize of the French Association for Artistic Action (AFAA) for her work entitled Tuareg, in gestures and movements. In 2011 she was awarded the Blachère Foundation prize for her work entitled The Animal in Man; the prize was an atelier in Arles and an exhibition at the Blachère Foundation. She is currently developing an art project about soutiki youth (The night is ours).

To know a species, look at its fears. To know yourself, look at your fears. Fear in itself is not important, but fear stands there and points you in the direction of things that are important. Don’t be afraid of your fears, they’re not there to scare you; they’re there to let you know that something is worth it.
