National Moment of Silence 2014

On August 14, 2014, citizens across America will gather in solidarity to hold vigils and observe a moment of silence to honor victims of Police Brutality
Police Brutality in the United States continues to be a pervasive problem that affects communities across the country. In recent years, we have had news of too many people losing their lives as a result of police brutality. We have also heard too many stories of people being sexually and otherwise physically assaulted by police. We are gathering together to observe a National Moment of Silence to pay respect to the lives lost and/or forever changed by the brutality of the police state.Too many citizens have suffered. Their families and friends need our positive energy and support in this moment of anger, frustration, fear, and helplessness.

Yet another real life example of #StreetHarassment on a regular ol' Tuesday on Earth.
Me: *walking briskly to work, carrying a coffee and scrolling through my phone* (yes, I was scrolling while walking. don't judge me)
Dude: *scurrying to walk beside me* Ooh. Can I get a smile? Please let me get a smile.
Me: Why? Why should I smile for you?
Dude: Because I like a smiling face.
Me: Well then YOU should smile.
Dude: What? Are you PMSing or something?
Me: *continues walking in silence*
Dude: *calls after me* Mean bitch!
smh. cant even walk down a damn street.

Pillow blanket

By Netherland-based design studio Joon & Jung. 

‘This genius blanket is essentially a quilt made of thirty pillows. The blanket leaves one pillow missing in its design, allowing you to slide your head through the hole like a poncho.’


OH MY GOD GIMME IT.


EVERYTHING I NEEDED IN LIFE

Six jazzy new covers for classic Ralph Ellison titles —

Ralph Ellison, one of the foremost African American authors of the literary canon, fell in love with music before he focused on writing. That’
s why designer Cardon Webb researched record art and type from the mid-century jazz era to create fresh new covers for six of Ellison’s seminal works. They’re a change from the muted packaging his books have been getting for years in that they celebrate the raucous, colorful energy of his prose. Click through for a sneak peek at the new editions — including Invisible Man, the posthumously published Juneteenth, and Flying Home — which will hit bookstores in September.
