SUANDI, DOROTHEA SMARTT, AND CAROL LEEMING - Women, Black Arts, and Brixton in the 1980s: A Conversation [Contemporary Women’s Writing 11:2 July 2017]

When I was living it at the time, I didn’t realize how important all this was. But before I get to Brixton, I want to start in Leicester. I’m going to start in 1981, I’m going to start with the race riots, and I’m going to start with Black women’s energy and activism here in the East Midlands. I did a Youth and Community Work course and was involved in work with girls. One thing led to another, and I got together with Donna Jackman, Angela and Charmaine Blake, and we created Ajani Women and Girls’ Centre for girls with African heritage. It started off as a community development project. We were doing things like pregnancy testing, but there was an arts and culture element, too. Following in the wake of the riots, there was a lot of Black women’s energy around in the 1980s. This produced a Black Mime Theatre, which came to Leicester, to Highfields Community Centre, along with lots of other companies and artists.[12] We were exposed to that. Equally, we were making international connections – organizing a minibus to go and see writers like Toni Morrison or Angela Davis and to hear singers like Sweet Honey in the Rock.[13] We were feeding ourselves with arts and culture from Black women from across the African diaspora. I want to emphasize that, and I want to emphasize that local activism and broader feminist activism were linked. We were making connections – between the local, national, and global situation of women, between activism and the arts – through Black women’s networks, through Black community networks, through political and social activity. When Ajani celebrated its tenth anniversary in 1992, I curated a program of events and invited Abasindi, from Manchester –.

16+17+18+19/100 days of productivity

25+26+27+28.05.20 // I promise I didn’t forget to post. I just… Didn’t feel like it. And yes I felt guilty for not posting but this month isn’t going too well for me. Especially the past few weeks. I know this blog is turning into a rant blog rather than being a study blog but I students need to find a safe place to rant. And this is my safe place.

I am feeling better today though, probably because I found some distractions and I’ve been doing quite a few online lessons (did some Maths, Physics and Arabic today!). I’ve also started a side project… Which is going pretty damn bad (for now). I wrote/drew my ideas so that’s good. Now I’ve got to evaluate my first model and try to work from there, somehow :/

I wasn’t too productive today (lmao not a surprise) but I feel that I did enough to call it a good day: did some online lessons, extra Maths revision + made some more summary notes for y10 Maths annnnd did some more organising. Obviously. I also finished all of my Chemistry and Physics work which was to watch a few videos and make notes. So overall, today was pretty good while the past few days I only managed to organise my stuff and reflect on myself. Self-reflection is actually really productive and necessary; I found that this is the key to personal growth which is what I’m working on these days.

If you read this far, thank you, and also I hope you have an amazing/productive week. If you’re not productive (like me) then that’s fine too. Don’t be too hard on yourself - you can’t always be productive, even if you’re a model student or a top achiever.

Management : et si on s'inspirait d'une meute de loups ?

Cette image illustre le déplacement d’une meute de loups. Les trois premiers loups sont encerclés en jaune. Contrairement à ce que l’on pourrait penser ce ne sont pas les loups dominants, dits « alpha », mais les plus vieux ou les plus malades. Le groupe avance à leur rythme. Les loups savent que si les plus faibles marchaient derrière, ils seraient vite distancés par la meute ou ils seraient des proies faciles lors d’une attaque. Ils sont donc suivis par cinq loups forts et puissants (entourés en rouge) qui peuvent les protéger du danger. Ensuite, il y a le reste des loups, puis à nouveau cinq loups forts et puissants et enfin, tout derrière,« l’alpha » chef de meute. Depuis sa position, il contrôle le groupe, décide de la direction à prendre et anticipe les attaques des adversaires. L’ensemble de la meute avance donc au rythme des faibles, sous la protection des plus forts et avec la direction donnée par un leader qui veille à la bonne coordination de la meute.

(Jean-Louis Gaillard) Dans quel type d'église, le chrétien devrait-il se retrouver ?

J'ai été souvent sollicité pour aller dans une Méga-Church, et j’‘y suis allé,  et j'ai vu beaucoup  de choses étranges. J'ai été ancien dans l'une des grandes églises de Paris durant 10 années, et je vous raconte … Références des anciens qui dirigeaient l'église de Jérusalem : Actes 11 : 30 Actes 15 : 2, 6, 23 Actes 21 :18 Je vous montre ce qu'est “un ancien” dans une église locale, et comment cela devrait fonctionner ainsi que la gouvernance collégiale des anciens et les cinq ministères…
