Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist: it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.John Taylor Gatto (via awakeningapril)

decolonize media, decolonize history
We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.Hermann Hesse (via likeafieldmouse)

Music: Mos Def “Umi Says”
Pleased to announce that we’re working with a new artist by the name of Jimi Nxir who’s a singer, songwriter and producer who’s currently living in NYC. For a long time now I have found myself passionate about music, outside of the fact that I play instruments myself, so this was my outlet to post all things that I liked music wise.
Glad to have the brothers MeLo-X / Jimi Nxir work on something in an organic fashion, straight random 2-3 AM in East Flatbush vibes and they both created something awesome in the span of 30 mins or so lol (crazy I know)
So here’s the first song titled ‘Sensation’ off of his debut EP coming this fall.
Download, share, listen to for hours all of that good stuff, just spread good music and good vibes.
happy birthday to the man whose work changed my life for the better. may 19th, malcolm x dayyy!!. HEYYYY!! =D
Technically late but ah well. Happy Birthday MX!
