afro-dominicano:

a lot of the tumblr science editors are so damn 1 dimensional they feature the same old safe/go-to sub categories of science leaving out a lot of goods from botany, entomology, geology, zoology (don’t get me started on the countless of amazing informational photos of animals that use scientific…

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

Black

Somedays i miss the sound of his heart
Beating through his chest
Seeing colors
when i felt so black and white
Feeling his calm
interject my iron clad maybes to dance
Somedays everything ive locked away
Cant all be contained
It floods my mind
Thronged all about
Staining my thoughts

Painting a more accurate version of history, one reblog at a time.
When I posted this archival image of a “real life Rosie the Riveter” one year ago, I had no idea it would resonate with so many people. 19K and counting.

CultureSOUL: *Vintage* African Americans - The Inkwell, Santa Monica, CA – 1920s-1940s

From Vintage Everyday & BlackPast.org:

“During the early 20th century, a section of the Santa Monica Beach referred to as the “Ink Well” was one of the few areas in California where African Americans were allowed to enjoy beach access in a largely segregated society…. The derogatory term “The Inkwell” was used by nearby Anglos in reference to the skin color of the beach-goers. Such names existed for other beaches across the U.S. as well.  Nonetheless, African Americans in Southern California, like their counterparts elsewhere, transformed the hateful moniker into a badge of pride.”

There was an “Inkwell” area of Martha’s Vineyard on the east coast also. Today, many affluent AAs still summer there including the Obamas who are scheduled to vacation on the Vineyard next month. More info on Santa Monica’s Inkwell here and here.

ABANDON by Dex R. Jones

I waited here for you until I questioned my own presence.
Virtue chips away from patience
like paint from walls
I have become a ghost that haunts this place.
But I have made this story my home
Nary a record ever skip.
Nor a song absent from my heart.
I still smile.
I still know joy.
I find myself tickled by the thought of you.
Laughing when nothing is funny.
Only now, I find solace in dancing on my own
with reckless abandon.

raeunderground:

It’s quarter to eight and you’re standing in a kitchen that does not belong to you, staring at a mess you don’t feel belongs to you either.

You spent the day moving boxes and furniture and picking out paint colors with your brother for his new house, and you were almost breathless with…
