If you get the chance to read my thread on the indigenous genocide in Maine, it would mean a lot to me, and thousands of others currently living. As well as the thousands of my ancestors who were killed. I encourage boosting. I'll be boosting it occasionally throughout tomorrow.
I'm going to sleep y'all.
I love you all very much, thank you.
Today I finished a really remarkable book called Her Mother's Mother's Mother and Her Daughters by Maria José Silveira. It chronicles 500 years of colonization in Brazil through the matrilineal descendants of a young indigenous girl born the year the Portuguese arrive on the coast. The story speaks with clarity and power about the lives of these women in a burgeoning and often cruel world. Despite the rawness, though, this book is a celebration of remembrance. Highly highly recommend.

Rest in Power Toni Morrison
" One of Morrison’s most enduring arguments is that we are all in some sense 'raced,' that, 'living in the wholly racialized society that is the United States,' no one writes, thinks, or lives apart from racial knowledge. Although the white writers she discusses imagine themselves as unraced authors of the universal, their fiction also engages dominant racial ideologies."
A New New White Man: Toni Morrison’s “Playing in the Dark” Turns 25
Rest in Power Toni Morrison
"Morrison has spent her whole career negotiating the Scylla and Charybdis of writing what she calls 'nonracist, yet race-specific literature.' She’s willing to accept “the labels” only because 'being a black woman writer is not a shallow place but a rich place to write from. It doesn’t limit my imagination; it expands it. It’s richer than being a white male writer because I know more and I’ve experienced more.'"
