Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones) // American Gods 

Mr. Nancy is Anansi, one of the Old Gods, and a central character in American Gods. He is also the titular character of the spin-off novel Anansi Boys.

Anansi originated in Ashanti tales, in what is now Ghana, Africa. Anansi is both a man and a spider who is a successful trickster, going so far as to steal stories from the sky god. From this point on, he owns all the stories. He shows up as a character and god in folk tales of the West African diaspora, especially in the Caribbean and the Southern United States.

An Ethiopian cotton tunic worn by noblewomen, in the British Museum; the patterns on Ethiopian tunics were copied by the Dutch designer Toon van de Manakker and made into a wax print for Vlisco in the 1960s, known by a few names such as ‘Angelina’ or ‘Addis Ababa’.

Vlisco was started in 1846 in the Netherlands with illustrators recreating Java fabrics, Indonesian Batik prints, for mass production. The fabrics didn’t do well in Indonesia, but they found a market in West Africa.

‘Angelina’ from the Vlisco website.

This print is most recognised in the design of ‘dashiki’ shirts; the word dashiki was borrowed from dan ciki (dan chiki), a close fitting gown worn by men often under a riga, a tunic in northern Nigeria among the Hausa, Fulani and other ethnic groups.

The Birth of Cool: Style Narratives of the African Diaspora (2008)

“It is broadly recognized that black style had a clear and profound influence on the history of dress in the twentieth century, with black culture and fashion having long been defined as ‘cool’. Yet despite this high profile, in-depth explorations of the culture and history of style and dress in the African diaspora are a relatively recent area of enquiry. The Birth of Cool asserts that ‘cool’ is seen as an arbiter of presence, and relates how both iconic and ‘ordinary’ black individuals and groups have marked out their lives through the styling of their bodies.

Focusing on counter- and sub-cultural contexts, this book investigates the role of dress in the creation and assertion of black identity. From the gardenia corsage worn by Billie Holiday to the work-wear of female African-Jamaican market traders, through to the home-dressmaking of black Britons in the 1960s, and the meaning of a polo-neck jumper as depicted in a 1934 self-portrait by African-American artist Malvin Gray Johnson, this study looks at the ways in which the diaspora experience is expressed through self-image.

Spanning the late nineteenth century to the modern day, the book draws on ready-made and homemade fashion, photographs, paintings and films, published and unpublished biographies and letters from Britain, Jamaica, South Africa, and the United States to consider how personal style statements reflect issues of racial and cultural difference. The Birth of Cool is a powerful exploration of how style and dress both initiate and confirm change, and the ways in which they expresses identity and resistance in black culture.”

White Women Make Work-Life Balance Possible by Relying on Women of Color




The pushback against institutionalized work patterns and the movement for work-life balance is an emerging, yet critical wing of feminism that is long overdue. But this wave can’t ignore the unique circumstances of women of color nor the socioeconomic dynamics of how white women came to even begin to have the conversation about work-life balance in the first place.
Throughout history, white women have used the labor of women of color to reduce their own domestic burden and free themselves up for corporate and civic pursuits. Simply put, the labor of Black, Hispanic and Asian American women has raised white women’s standard of living.

So if we’re talking about work-life balance, let’s be clear that many white women of means have achieved that balance standing on the backs of women of color.

Happy International women’s day 

This teaaaaaaaaaaaaa oh wow this tea is piping hot.

And for once I hope that white women not take this as a personal affront and pay attention to how your battle with the patriarchy shapes our battle.
