French photographer and digital retoucher Laure Fauvel has turned the tables on things that go bump in the night in this photo series ‘Terreurs’. Instead of having the children hiding, he has depicted them as strong and brave with a sword, pop gun or fairy wand drawn and the monsters and creatures cowering in fear.
"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"
"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician." - Source
YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD.
WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?
I got so much crap when I cut my hair the second time. All I heard was, “you have such beautiful hair why did you cut it?” When my hair got long enough I got loc extensions. I heard nothing but praise. “Now you look like a woman.” “Don’t ever cut your hair again, you look so much better.” Until I went home and my grandparents gave me crap for having locs.
I am not my hair. And no matter how I choose to style it, I look beautiful. My hair and what I choose to do with it does not define me nor does it concern you. And no matter how I wear it I look divine because of who I am, not what is on my head.

Spencer Finch - 366, Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year (2009)
This work is based on Emily Dickinson in 1862, when she wrote 366 poems in 365 days. It is a real-time memorial to that year, which burns for exactly one year. The sculpture is comprised of 366 individual candles arranged in a linear sequence, each of which burns for 24 hours. The colour of each candle matches a colour mentioned in the corresponding poem. For the poems in which no colour is mentioned, the candles are made out of natural paraffin.
Macabre statues to keep me company outside my new office.

this is the abridged pop quiz i’m giving my students tomorrow, in intro to ethnic studies—i would really encourage my non-native followers to consider these questions as well, and to challenge themselves in trying to answer these without the help of the internet (of course look it up later, but i think it’s important to take a minute and recognize things we are ignorant on before blindly googling it).
i’m also doing a class-wide (image-based) quiz to see who can name famous Native people versus Indian mascots, and culturally appropriative fashion brands versus the cultures from which the trendy item in question originates. i have an hour and fifteen minutes to cover all Native experiences of racism post-1850—that in and of itself is a racist requirement of me. what i have learned to do with the time allotted to me is push students to recognize just how incredibly ignorant they are re: Native peoples, cultures, and political issues, rather than try to cram a bunch of stuff in their heads. It’s better for them to walk out stunned and humbled at how little they all know than with frantically scrawled notes they’re not gonna keep or remember.
