 The Costume of African Diaspora (CIAD) presents its biggest exhibit to date with Tartan: Its Journey Through the African Diaspora – uncovers historic tartan pieces that has traveled from Africa, Europe and India. 
From CIAD:
Costume Institute of the African Diaspora has been established to advance the study of costume, clothing and textiles from the African Diaspora.
We define the African Diaspora as being where African people and people of African heritage reside in significant numbers and have developed cultural practices and customs.
CIAD aims to promote access to costume history and developments in contemporary fashion. We hope to provide the best and most varied opportunities to understanding and studying every aspect of costume and dress from the African Diaspora.
The project looks at how these cultures adapted, adopted or absorbed this influence to bring significance to fabrics such as madras cloth.
The exhibit took place in London.

White privilege

ethiopianbutamerican:

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah
