@owningmytruth I see #POWER in connection and community, because it is ultimately through love and empathy that we learn to truly connect and care about one another across difference. In community we find collective power to fight against all that is unjust and inhumane. #wearequeerafrica #queer #africa #lgbt #african #stories #justice #love #empathy #community #nigeria #activism #mikaelowunna #owningmytruth

saharareporters:

“No Federal Government Help” At Post Kidnapping Site, Says Chibok Youth Leader

Slowly, details are emerging of what actually occurred in the days that followed, and on the night dozens of Boko Haram members abducted nearly 300 students from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok at gunpoint. One resident of that village has stepped forward, and in a wide-ranging and candid interview with SaharaTV on Saturday, told for the first time just how Federal Government officials reacted, and responded.

Not much of a response at all, it turns out.

It is a story contrary to what as been told publicly by officials in Abuja, the Nigerian Capital, to both the Nigerian press, and to the world media.

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”
