This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via maddierose)

I constantly struggle with impatience over project conclusions. :/

For those of you who’ve asked how you can support Medievalpoc:

Become a Medievalpoc Patron!

Medievalpoc is a collection of art, history, and academic resources accessible to anyone. Ph.D. candidates, history educators, fantasy authors, fans of historical media and cultural studies, as well as those who are just interested in learning something different have found new and exciting information at Medievalpoc. These artworks and documentation are readily available on multiple social media platforms, including Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Medievalpoc.org. The goal of Medievalpoc is not to hoard information, but to share it as widely as possible and incite discussion in social as well as activist and educational communities.

Patronage will provide the opportunity to not only bring Medievalpoc to a wider audience online, but the ability to travel for appearances at academic and literary conventions, speak at functions, and facilitate activist work in face-to-face environments. Patronage means more access to databases, art collections, and academic resources for the creation of Medievalpoc. In addition, your patronage can pave the way for exciting new projects across various media, like print, film, and interactive online content—projects Patrons can see in the making.

I look forward to forging a new era of Patron and Creator with my readers in my goal of bringing Art and History to life in a new way-a History in which we can see ourselves.

I became a Medievalpoc Patron and wanted to signal boost this.

When people complain about “revisionist history” what they don’t tell you is that the “default history” so many were taught in school—the one that leaves out PoC, the one that leaves out women, the one that leaves out the ways in which indigenous people fought back, adapted, co-opted and SURVIVED—is the true revisionist history.

For me a project like medievalpoc and all the people writing and educating about the full panoply of history is part of RESTORATIVE HISTORY. We have always been here.

Thank you, and can I just say I adore the phrase “restorative history”. Revising history is a necessary process of writing it, but I think people have made so many negative and even pejorative associations with the term, the meaning has changed.

Hungry? Just hit ‘print’
3-D food printers could revolutionize the way we make meals. Take a look at the variety of foods — including pizza — that can be printed.

Powerful & creative imagery

the food and education made me sad.

I have always been fascinated by these ‘world of 100 people’ things, I remember spending hours thinking through the ones on a poster at church when I was 9 or so. It really, really makes some really important stuff so blindingly clear, in numbers we can understand. And it should, I hope it does, inspire us to act. 

Amazing post.

Have you ever wanted to have dinner with LeVar Burton? Or maybe try on his Star Trek visor? Also wanna help kids all over the world read and learn cool things? WELL NOW YOU CAN!

LeVar Burton— my dad— has started a new kickstarter (click the link) to fund his awesome Reading Rainbow app. The prizes are really cool and involve people like Patrick Stewart and Laurence Fishburne!

If you can donate 5 dollars, please do. If you can afford more, you rock. If you can’t, please signal boost to do your part!

We’re counting on you, Tubmlr— the community of nerds and awesome people.

"as of 2011, America was the only free-market country where the current generation was less well educated than the previous"

He’s already passed his $1 million goal. That’s awesome.

I wish I could find the cash to do a meet options. Though sponsering a class might be a better choice, my kid will be in the 4th grade next year.
