The Mover is also one of the few single fathers in the township. And while he has helped many kids find freedom, he still has difficulty getting his own daughter to break open and find her own powers. But in a tender moment together, this is all about to change. Explore Gqom dance and movement to ignite your own sense of freedom.

From NABJ President Dorothy Tucker: Insurrectionists who attacked media must be held accountable. News organizations must act now to ensure journalists' safety - new attacks are planned.

NABJ shares the concerns expressed by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) as stated in its alert (https://cpj.org/2021/01/cpj-calls-for-accountability-for-attacks-on-media-during-us-capitol-assault/).

"The violence displayed toward the media during the assault on the United States Capitol has no place in a democracy. Individuals who threatened and assaulted journalists must be held accountable for their actions,” said CPJ Program Director Carlos Martinez de la Serna.

According to reports from ABC News and NBC News, the FBI has issued an advisory to law enforcement about planned attacks across the country at all 50 state Capitols starting Jan. 16, and also in Washington, D.C.

We call on our members to continue to take precautions to protect themselves and appeal to their media companies to initiate additional security protocols inside and outside the newsroom, as stated in NABJ’s security advisory this past weekend. News organizations must act now to ensure the safety of all journalists. Read more: http://bit.ly/3btRwh5

NABJ Issues Security Advisory for Journalists in Wake of Capitol Insurrection – NABJ

#NABJ Security Advisory Issued:

As you know, these are dangerous times for our country and our profession, especially with the most recent violent physical attacks during the Capitol insurrection.

As journalists continue to be targets of extremists, it is reasonable to assume there may be more attacks in the days ahead. Given the chaos in Washington, D.C., state leaders are now reassessing their security protocols and we urge media owners to do the same by taking immediate steps to provide heightened security and implement protocols to protect our members inside and outside of the newsroom.

We're asking news managers to assess protocols & be proactive in providing extra security, assign teams of reporters instead of sending them alone. Members don't hesitate to alert managers of suspicious behavior/threats.

A new book has become an inspiration for the civil rights protests taking place in America. Many protesters say they find the African proverbs in the book empowering and inspirational such as: 1. If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven't spent a night with a mosquito. (A proverb from Botswana and Swaziland) 2. Walk like you have 3,000 ancestors walking behind you. (South Africa) 3. When you straighten your back, no man can ride you. (Central Africa Republic) 4. A single bracelet does not jingle. Diversity is beautiful, just like the unyielding cadence of a quilt stitched from different colors. (Congo) The book recently won the Nautilus Award for positive social change and social justice. Here is how Eric Copage of the New York Times describes it: "Rich with reflections on life, love, and community, this extraordinary, timeless collection of proverbs inspires, comforts, and delights the soul." And Nikki Giovanni calls it “A well designed and beautiful book.” You can read more about it here:
For journalists and bloggers looking for picture books that promote social and racial justice/points of view, please permit me to share this list. There are many excellent books available. This is a start. The first one, 13 WAYS OF LOOKING AT A BLACK BOY, is by acclaimed author and poet Tony Medina, with illustrations by 13 artists (Penny Candy Books). Other great writers such as Nikki Grimes and Kwame Alexander are also shown here.

Hello, I am still seeking participants for a study. Details are posted below if anyone is interested. Dear Prospective Participants: I am Dr. Gemmicka Piper. I am the Humanities Librarian for the University Library. I recently received small grant through ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries) in order to complete a project related to DEI and scholarly communications. My proposed project, “Barriers to Minority Faculty and Open Knowledge Production” seeks to understand the knowledge level and engagement of faculty of color regarding open knowledge production. I seek to ascertain how respondents understand the topic and the types of information they received and from where they received it. My aim is to identify areas of misinformation as well as areas where librarians can offer more targeted support to faculty of color on issues connected to open knowledge production, particularly as it pertains to the strengthening of their promotion and/or tenure cases. Currently, I am looking for 25 participants for my study. The time commitment for individuals is a total of 45min. to 1-hour individual phone or in person interview. Additionally, there will be a 1 hour in person or virtual focus group. Each activity will earn the participant a $25 Amazon gift card. To participate individuals must: 1. Be faculty of either tenure or nontenure track (for the sake of inclusion this would also include lectures & clinicians). 2. Identify as an individual of a racial or ethnic background. 3. Have spent the majority of their academic careers in the U.S. (to ensure their understanding of open publishing is rooted in the U.S. scholarly communication infrastructure). 4. While all discipline background are welcome, participants must be non-librarian faculty. This work will be pivotal in helping librarians develop outreach efforts around open scholarly publication for faculty of color. Would you consider participating in the study if you meet the above criteria and/or could you assist me in connecting with faculty who may be willing to participate in this project? I can be reached via email at: [email protected]. Sincerely,
Greetings everyone, I hope this note finds you well and safe. Due to the COVID-19 challenge, my colleagues at the University of Nebraska Press, Project Muse, and I have created an opportunity for our family, community, and beyond to have FREE access to EVERY issue of the Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships until May, 2020. The rationale for this initiative is that a number of you are completing your thesis, dissertation, or research projects and it seemed incongruent with the mission of the Journal to require a subscription to access this scholarly medium during this sensitive time. The link below will allow you to download articles from all 22 issues of the JBSR:-)
For those photographers out there, here is an opportunity to become part of a visual catalogue of human resilience, determination and perseverance. Share your images of hope, as you work documenting our reality and how we overcome the challenges we face. https://www.facebook.com/focusonthestoryblog/posts/1331767373677604
