    Ataraxia (ἀταραξία “tranquility”) is a Greek term used by Pyrrho and Epicurus for a lucid state of robust tranquility, characterized by ongoing freedom from distress and worry.

    For the Epicureans, ataraxia was synonymous with the only true happiness possible for a person. It…

  7. "There remains an uneasiness with discussing American racism alongside the myth of American exceptionalism, because the myth is easier to digest. We continue to be asked to stop. We continue to be told we’ve won enough.

    Emancipation was supposed to be enough. ‘Separate but equal’ was supposed to be enough. Brown v. Board of Education was supposed to be enough. The Civil Rights/Voting Acts were supposed to be enough. Affirmative action was supposed to be enough. A black president is supposed to be enough. Yet, here we are, facing mass incarceration, food insecurity, chronic unemployment, the erosion of the social safety net, income inequality, housing discrimination, police brutality and the seemingly unending deaths of our young people at the hands of police and armed vigilantes. Pardon the ‘profound gloom.’

    What some call depression or pessimism, I would call impatience and rage. Our impatience and rage is what has produced progress. That we are still impatient and angry reflects not black people’s failing but how far America still has to go. My question/challenge to white people who claim to be on the side of equality and justice: when will you get just as angry that these things have been done in your name?"

    CunninLynguists // Never Come Down (The Brownie Song)

    I featured this song on my first mixtape MusicalDopeTrip Vol.1 which I re-released on SoundCloud a couple months ago. If you haven’t heard it yet acquaint yourself with this classic blazing music.

    "I can’t stop feeling high". Definitely part of my 4/20 playlist

    Classic 4/20 music.

    hey y’all, please consider participating anonymously or otherwise. there are so many complex reasons victims/survivors do not report, and i want to help create space for us to feel empowered in sharing them.

    you can submit anonymously here (anon asks are on) or using your twitter handle through the hashtag <3

    i won’t be posting anything submitted via tumblr in the hashtag until monday 4/14 at 7pm, but you’re welcome to begin submitting now. i’ve already seen a few that are breaking my heart. you are all powerful beyond measure.

    another quick clarification: tumblr’s submit option for non-users asks for a name and email address but you can give fakes for both of those—and either way i would never share them.

    this is a great idea Hannah. also, for ppl like me who have twitter but dont really use it unless i know something is happening, this is nice to be prepared w/ lol

    This is a great idea. There needs to be more conversation about why; even the most earnest of allies who are not survivors cannot comprehend why “more reporting” is not something that will “fix” anything.

    just a reminder that this will be happening tonight at 7pm ET/4 pm PT. i haven’t posted anything in the hashtag yet and there are a LOT of submissions, but i’ll do my best to post everything! plz continue submitting if you want to share your story or tweet it later.

    Just came across the artwork of Jamilla Okubo, a Kenyan artist and textile designer currently attending Parsons and majoring in Integrated Fashion Design. Collaging prints and paint, Okubo’s colorful illustrations carries what I see as the promise of a very creative and successful future. Can’t wait to see what more this young student has to offer.

    ART: Jamilla Okubo.

    If her name sounds in any way familiar, it might be because you saw this work of hers posted previously on Dynamic Africa. If not, the above images should surely make her name and artwork identifiable to you in the future. 

    Okubo is an up-and-coming textile design artist whose work expands into paintings, garment designs, illustrations and more.

    Fancy her work? Why not own it (or gift it)! If it’s pillow cases you want, iPad and laptop skins, framed artwork, clothing or mugs - her work is all for sale in these various mediums.
