Erase Racism Oct. 2007

Posted by Jack Stephens on October 29, 2007

This months Erase Racism Carnival is up at Kill Bigotry:

The 20 posts have been divided into 4 categories: 1) Our Criminal (in)justice System; 2) Quotes that Made you Run to your Computer; 3) A Trip around the Color Wheel; and 4) A History of Violence. Finally, although tedious, I thoroughly enjoyed the process of being informed and enlightened by so many of you. — MODI

The 4th People of Color Scifi & Fantasy Carnival

Posted by Jack Stephens on October 26, 2007

The fourth People of Color Scifi & Fantasy Carnival is up at Francie Doesn’t Like Coffee Ice Cream:

I’m starting off this edition of the People of Color Carnival with the question: what is common knowledge and whose knowledge is it?

Grada Kilomba begins the first day of class by asking her students questions about things which are common knowledge for most of the black students in her class, but that her white students have never heard of. This simple exercise highlights the biases behind what is considered “common knowledge.” Kilomba then says

It is not that [Africans] have not been speaking; but rather that our voices – through a system of racism – have been systematically disqualified as valid knowledge; or else represented by whites, who ironically become the ‘experts’ of ourselves.

Feminist Carnival No. 45

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 21, 2007

The newest edition of the Feminist Carnival is up at Feminist Philosophers:

First off I just want to say what a huge amount of great feminist writing there is out there, and how tough it’s been to put this together.   There’s just too much important stuff out there,  and I feel really overwhelmed. I’ve organized the Carnival a little artificially into categories, just to make it easier to take it all in (hopefully).  In particular, the fact that there is an “Analysis” header shouldn’t be taken to suggest that other items lack analysis.  It’s just that these didn’t fit the other categories, really! So, enough faffing, here we go…

Afro-Spear Monthly Carnival to Soon Come

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 12, 2007

Asabanga blogs:

In an effort to have more focused discussions, we are starting a monthly carnival with rotating topics. As I understand it, the way a carnival works is that those who wish to participate, post an essay on the topic on your blog page and forward the link to us at Afrospear@hotmail.com. We will post all the links and then have a discussion on the essays which have been submitted.

It has inspired me to submit for the first topic of our monthly carnival, the issue of education within the Black/African community. Some questions to consider: Are we currently suffering from mis-education? What is your opinion and/or perspective on how our young are being educated? Are they being mis-educated and if so, what are the dynamics and results of this process of mis-education that you see? Does education have the power to change our lives and if so, do we, as a people, truly value and take advantage of that opportunity? What solutions and/or strategies do you propose to the education dilemma which is facing our community(ies)? It would be beneficial and enlightening to hear from different regions of the Diaspora and from the Motherland itself.

The deadline is August 31st and the blog will be on the first Monday of September.

15th Erase Racism Carnival

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 30, 2007

July’s Erase Racism Carnival is up at RaceWire:

Every month, a different blog gathers posts from throughout cyberspace that explore issues of racial justice. The goal is to enhance the discussion of race online and connect bloggers working hard to make that happen. We thank everyone who submitted pieces for this, the 15th carnival.

This month we wanted to highlight some topics we feel don’t get enough time in the sun. So we sought out several pieces on topics that matter: Media Representations, the Green Economy and Black/Brown relations.

2nd Carnival of Radical Action

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 26, 2007

Fire Fly hosts the 2nd Carnival of Radical Action at She Who Stumbles:

Welcome to the second Carnival of Radical Action!

This month has been full of ups and downs, so promoting and writing for this carnival hasn’t been a huge priority for me. But a handful of dedicated people have made wonderful submissions — this edition of the CORA is about quality, not quantity!

The theme of this edition of the carnival seems to have been “community” by default. The physical spaces that people live in and the things they do in those spaces, amongst their existing networks. The radicalism of people changing the way they relate to others.

39th Carnival of Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 18, 2007

The 39th Carnival of Feminists is up Laurelin in the Rain:

Hello and welcome to the thirty-ninth Carnival of Feminists! Please take a seat, we have a very big and comfy sofa with limitless seating capacity, and also there are a few brightly coloured beanbags around. Enjoy our selections of drinks and snacks, and settle down for the best of the feminist blogosphere. I started by trying to put things into categories…. but then my categories got all confused and began to merge into one another. So instead of even giving the appearance of organisation, here are the posts, in no particular order…

Call for Post For Carnival of Radical Action

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 14, 2007

Fire Fly, from the blog She Who Stumbles, is making a shout out to all of those organizers our there in the blogosphere for any blogs posts on orgizing:

There are still a couple of weeks to go before the second Carnival of Radical Action goes up! And it’ll be hosted right here at She Who Stumbles. The first one was so great that we want to do it all over again and bring you another… and another, and another… and many more to come!

I’d like to add that we don’t have a fixed definition of “radical” here. By radical we don’t necessarily mean revolutionary, and we don’t exclude revolutionary action either. Rather, I would say that this carnival is about an emergent definition of radical that comes out of the organising and activism that people undertake, rather than a pre-existing definition that can be applied across contexts. This is about elaborating the process of change, and empowering people to take part in it through blogging. (In that sense, what I’m doing right now is radical too!)

2nd Carnival of Radical Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on June 14, 2007

The second Carnival of Radical Feminists is up at Feminist Law professors:

The First Carnival of Radical Feminists is a ridiculously difficult act to follow, because Heart did such a fantastic job with it. It is a great resource, and I hope this one will be at least somewhat useful as well. My approach has been to separate the material by broad (yes, bad pun) subject designations, which I have done imperfectly in places, due to overlapping issues. Also I can’t really do some of the linked posts justice by describing them, so in many cases all you have to work with is post titles. I hope you will not be put off by a lack of enthusiastic adverbs or exclamation points, and check them out. You won’t agree with everything you see at these links, but I think you will learn things and be made to think.

First Carnival of Radical Action

Fire Fly and I are pleased to dedicate this carnival to the phenomenal WOC blogger BrownFemiPower. This carnival idea is her brainchild. Fire Fly’s encouragement, along with these excellent submissions, gave it wings. So we thank her and all of you, first and foremost.

A Call for Submissions: Carnival of Radical Action

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 23, 2007

Sylvia calls for posts for the Carnival of Radical Action:

“Most of us are organizers or activists in our real lives. Or at the very least, we think about it an awful lot and wish we had the skills and/or knowledge to organize. But contrary to the images of protest that make front pages and cause our hearts to swell–actual organizing is not as easy as it looks–nor is it very glamorous.

That’s what this carnival is all about. I will be accepting any posts/submissions that have anything to do with organizing on a grassroots level.

38th Carnival of Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 21, 2007

Team Rainbow is hosting the 38th Carnival of Feminists:

Team Rainbow has a full tent tonight, what with the philosophical feminists leaping through epistemological hoops, the audience cheering and jeering in the stands, the fire-swallowing radicals compelling us to see it another way, and the multiple oppression trapeze artists leaping across the chaos to make a connection from one oppressive paradigm to another. Over the din, one can barely hear the MRAs from their mindcages, screeching for yet another banana.
