Today, there are about 50,000 Sidis, or Afro-Indians, living throughout India. They are the descendants of Africans who came or were brought to India in several waves over the centuries. Africans first arrived in Indian ports as sailors on Arab merchant ships as early as the 7th century. Many more came as soldiers in the Muslim armies that began conquering India in the 13th century. Even more turned up during the colonial era, brought as domestic servants and slaves by the subcontinent’s Portuguese, English, and French colonizers.

What makes the story of Afro-Indians so unique in African Diaspora history is that although they were brought as slaves, they were often able to rise through the ranks to become military leaders, administrators, and grand viziers in India. Afro-Indian families even became hereditary rulers of two of India’s princely states, Janjira and Sachin, which they ruled until India’s unification in 1947. Often, hints of Afro-Indian influence appear in India’s many painted manuscripts.

"Being a person of color, farming and having sovereignty over my food and where it comes from is a political act. A revolutionary act—being out here farming, serving the land in a way that’s environmentally friendly, running our own businesses, having our own independence, having sovereignty over our own seeds, over our foods."
Natasha Bowens—farmer, activist, and author of The Color of Food—sees something missing in our new local, farm-to-table food culture: people of color.

"In my seminar, I strive to instill the value of embracing difference as a both/and strategy that creates greater opportunities for urban justice rather than an either/or contest that furthers the practices of intentional segregation and racism. These are lessons I reflect on as I walk through Washington, D.C., 15 years after my planning work there. There, I see revitalized neighborhoods, yet missing are many of the people of color who attended our community meetings and worked hard for the safer, cleaner streets new residents now enjoy. No, design alone can’t end urban injustice but it is a tool and a tool we know how to use. Let’s start teaching." #urbandesign   #humancentereddesign   #racism   #inclusivity  
In recent weeks, a conversation about how race figures into the education of urban designers and planners has sprung up online and in conversations among professionals in Cambridge, Detroit and elsewhere.

No one had ever goes broke by giving.

The kind woman reminds me of so many good souls I know who have huge hearts that pour from their bodies into all they do.

The latter part of this video reminds me of some poor unfortunate souls in my life who worship paper and things.
