(Рус, Eng⬇) 📚Es: Nuestros regalitos para St Jordi. Para mí: "¿Por qué las cebras no tienen ulceras?" Nos han recomedado este libro en la uni en dos asignaturas diferentes, así que debe ser realmente bueno. Para Jorge: La cabaña del tío Tom.
📚РУС: Сегодня день самый романтичный и особенный день для Каталонии-день Св.Георгия. Сегодня принято дарить розы женщинам и книги мужчинам. Но на самом деле книги дарятся всем подряд, ведь любовь к чтению не зависит от пола. Подарок мне от Хорхе: "Почему жирафы не страдают язвой желудка". Она про стресс и как с ним справляться. Нам эту книгу порекомендовали в универе, на двух разных предметах, так что должна быть хорошей! Мой Хорхе подарок: "Хижина дяди Тома".
📚ENG: Saint George's Day is a very romantic and special tradition for Catalans. Originally, men gave flowers to women and women gave books to men, but in fact books are bought and given to everybody, independently of gender. Jorge gave me the "Giraffe" book about stress and how to cope with it. We were recommended this book by several teachers in the uni, so it must be good. And I gave Uncle Tom's cabin to Jorge.

#HarrietBeecherStowe Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe, best known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, exposing the harsh conditions for enslaved African Americans. She was influential for both her writings and her public stances on social issues of the day. The book reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and Great Britain, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. Out side of writing, she helped establish an integrated school in 1870 Mandarin for children and adults. .

Today was a great day! Spent it getting our maternity photos done up at Uncle Tom's Cabin! We had a key mix up so we weren't able to go inside but that's okay! We took some around the spots our family goes to when we are up there. We had the honor of having such an awesome photographer and old friend do our shoot today! Thank you SO much Chris!! I hope we weren't too much trouble!(: The excitement of Luna's arrival has definitely intensified! I can't wait to see her! @christophemark #uncletomscabin#christophercreek#LunaAlexandria#whatabeautifulday#kohlsranch
Practice because the stage is being impatient to advocate us to depict how wrong the slavery in the 19th century was, and how love defeated every evil’s ways in so many levels! I hope you guys can see us perform. It will be on the 26th this month.1:30! Teater Gabi, Unsri Indra Laya.
Lmao, maybe I should post about the history behind all of these. 🤔
Some basic stuff:
• N*gger is a derogatory term derived from negroid (so I’ve heard).
• Nigga is obviously the less offensive, reclaimed version of n*gger.
• House nigga and field nigga are terms dating back to slavery days. There were “n*ggers” who worked in the Big House near the master and his family (usually lighter-skinned, mixed blacks), then there were the darker ones who picked cotton n shit in the field.
• Uncle Tom is a character from a book published back in the 1800s, #UncleTomsCabin . The name is used as a derogatory term for “sellout” blacks.
• Uncle Ruckus is a character from the show #Boondocks . He is a self-hating black man, so his name is also used as an insult for sellouts, just like Uncle Tom.
• I think the term “coon” stems from where captive Africans were kept.
• I was told by @blackblossums that “Abeed” is an Arabic slur agains black Africans.
• At a @trevornoah show I was at last year, he said that “Kaffir” means “unbeliever”. It was originally used by Arabs against Europeans, but ofc, White people jacked it and turned it into yet another slur against black people💀🤦🏾♀️.
• Negro is obviously derived from the Portuguese word for “black”. In Spanish and Portuguese, “Negro/Negra” still simply mean “black”.
• Sambo is also a character from Uncle Tom’s Cabin. From what I know of the story, he beat other slaves. So, his name is another word for “sellout”.
• The origins of “Tar baby” should be obvious. It is used as an insult against darker-skinned black folks.
👁👁Don't stare too long, you might just turn to stone.⠀
#AlisonSaar "Topsy Turvy" is on view through May 12. Taking inspiration from the character of Topsy in "Uncle Tom's Cabin," the slave girl is the leitmotif that runs throughout the exhibition. We see her in "The Wrath of Topsy" (2018) as a gorgoneion Medusa-like head -- her “sundry little tails” radiate outwards, and her dark skin made even darker by the empty white gleam of her eyes. ⠀

Baby Elizabeth Olivia Grant in BOOK 10 - BRIDES OF DIABLO: UNLAWFUL LOVE - MABEL is named not only after the 1 Voter who voted in my Baby Poll, but after the Heroine Eliza in Harriet Beecher Stowe's UNCLE TOM'S CABIN (Eustacia explains that she will be named Elizabeth so that the KKK doesn't guess who she's named after should they attack) and the feminine version of Oliver - Model Inspiration - Joshua Morrow - #JoshuaMorrow
I wanted Elizabeth to be a combination of Eliza in UNCLE TOM'S CABIN and Beth in Louisa May Alcott's LITTLE WOMEN, but LITTLE WOMEN wasn't published until 1868 - DANG!!! :( #ElizabethOlivia#Elizabeth#Olivia#Eliza#UncleTomsCabin#HarrietBeecherStowe#Beth#LittleWomen#LouisaMayAlcott
#AlisonSaar "Topsy Turvy" featured in the @latimes. Visit our bio link for @leahollman's insightfully sensitive review.⠀
"The physical expression and symbolic reclamation of power pulses through the work in "Topsy Turvy." As the title suggests, Saar is turning things upside down and inside out, giving rage and right their day. Nowhere is this more exhilarating than in the sculptures of five little girls, armed with the vintage tools of their field labor — tobacco knife, hoe, bale hook — and a formidable intensity of purpose."⠀
The exhibition is on view at L.A. Louver through May 12.⠀
Josiah Henson House - Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site
The Henson House is historically significant for its association with Reverend Josiah Henson, a fugitive slave, memoirist, and conductor on the Underground Railroad, who rose in status to international celebrity as the inspiration for the character of Tom in Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin.
What was lost is now found. ...
When I was quite young & she was still alive, my grandmother gave me this calling card treasure. I had given it up for lost decades ago. Today the moving gremlins gave it back. Finding it was worth all the creepy black widows scurrying out of old boxes at my fingertips. ...

Câu hỏi đầu tiên sau khi đọc xong" Sao mình không mua tác phẩm này từ trước chứ"!! Túp lều bác Tom đúng thực sự là 1 tác phẩm kinh điển. Tớ đọc mà không thể dừng được. Và đọc xong thì ngay lập tức phải viết những dòng này khi mà cảm xúc vẫn còn nguyên. Nó hay lắm, nhưng nó buồn quá, nguyên từ đầu đến cuối truyện nó buồn. Không biết sao mà nó cứ khiến t nghĩ đến "Những người khốn khổ" của Victor Hugo. Nhưng cuốn kia về sự hà khắc đến độc ác trong luật pháp với những con người khốn khổ, còn cuốn này nói về những người da đen. Số phận của những người da đen vì nạn phân biệt chủng tộc nó đau đớn quá, họ không được coi là con người, chỉ đáng như một thứ đồ vật không hơn không kém. Chưa đọc thì mình chưa thể hiểu và nghĩ rằng nạn phân biệt chủng tộc nó lại khốc liệt và kinh khủng đến mức này. Một em bé, một cụ già cũng bị mang ra bán, thân phận những cô gái da đen, đặc biệt những cô gái xinh đẹp đều bị vấy bẩn. Đau xót lắm!! Những khi những tên khốn kiếp địa chủ đày đọa, đánh đập những người nô lệ là lòng thấy phẫn uất, những người tốt thì lại cứ ra đi lần lượt. Bác Tom đã gần với tự do lắm rồi thì chủ bác lại ra đi đột ngột và thế là bác lại sống vs thân phận nô lệ và rơi vào tay một tên độc ác. Một quyển sách làm người đọc rơi nước mắt không biết bao nhiêu lần, một quyển sách làm người đọc thấy phẫn uất, rồi lại thấy thương xót cho số phận những con người khốn khổ. Đọc xong rồi tự thấy trên đời này có nhiều người khổ lắm, hãy chia sẻ đi, hãy cho đi mà đừng mong nhận lại!!!!! #TúplềubácTom#uncletomscabin#classicnovel#HarrietBeecherLtorve#books#bookstagram#booklover#lovebook#bestbook#instagram#bookaholic#bookworm
Otis College Alumni Alison Saar’s (MFA Fine Arts ‘81) exhibition “Topsy Turvy” is on display until May 12 at L.A. Louver. Check it out before it’s too late!
@cmonstah singles out #AlisonSaar "Topsy Turvy" in @LATimes Datebook -- link in bio!
A historic American novel inspires sculpture by Alison Saar, while a show at the Getty Museum explores culture exchange in the ancient Mediterranean. Here are five exhibitions and events landing in L.A. in the coming week:
Alison Saar, “Topsy Turvy,” at L.A. Louver. This show of new work by the L.A.-based artist takes the character of Topsy, from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” as a point of inspiration. In sculpture and painting, she transforms the young slave girl into a symbol of defiance and, in the process, weaves in elements of Greek myth into Topsy’s story. This looks like a must-see. On May 1 at 7 p.m., the artist will lead a listening party of “angry songs.” RSVP is required (310-822-4955 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Through May 12.
