I am sharing this important message from @wvu_jazzprogram #Repost@wvu_jazzprogram with @get_repost
Given that our semester concluded a few weeks ago I have not recently updated this page, but in lieu of the current state of affairs in this country it seems more than necessary to update everyone. There are a few things that I want to say:
1. Jazz is black music. If we play this music, we must do so with the acknowledgement that black lives matter.
2. The recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery are at the center of our national discussion but are the most recent in a long list of victims at the hands of racism, police, and vigilantes. As jazz students and musicians, we cannot and should not ignore the abhorrent racism that has been displayed toward black musicians throughout the history of jazz. This racism has included police brutality, a biased justice system, industry-imposed economic hardships—all within Jim Crow America or a modern US riddled with racial microaggressions. Jazz music has been the instrument of protest and the essence of jazz music itself is individuality and freedom. It would be unacceptable for our students to learn jazz without having honest conversations and acknowledging the disgusting truths about the inequality of race (and gender) in the music.
3. I see a glimpse of hope as many of our students and other young people are gaining an increased awareness of these issues and discovering ways that they can engage in positive solutions. I suggest a few valuable texts about jazz and race:
Black Music, White Business
Jazz and Justice: Racism and the Political Economy of the Music
What is This Thing Called Soul: Conversations on Black Culture and Jazz Education
Call a family member or friend today to just talk — not about what’s happening in the world, but about what’s happening on the inside of you. Don't put boundaries on your self-care. You don't have to "earn" me-time. Practice it often — even before you need it.
Each of us, being a unique expression of the Infinite Potential, is born into this world in a completely unique and unprecedented situation with a unique Point-of-View, personality, and manner of expression. We also each have our own exclusive gifts and abilities. All of this is divinely manifested in order that the Infinite Source of all creation may experience IT-SELF in all of its possibilities. The conditions of our birth, our nationality, our gender, our race, our religion, our families, our sexuality, our body type, etc. are all merely the conditions of our “Starting Point.” Our “Starting Point” defines us no more than the seed defines the mighty oak which grows from within it. We are infinite beings with infinite potential. And it is through our natural orbit that this infinite potential can be released into actualization.
Now this Universal Momentum, which manifests as our natural orbit and moves through us, inspires us, guides us, and teaches us, can also unleash our gifts and utilize our circumstances towards the ultimate manifestation of our destiny, dreams, and our True Will – as soon as we fall into alignment with it. Through this alignment, we are instantly swept up into the Magickal adventure of our lives, with the Universe at our back and its power pouring through us via our inspired words and actions. And it is exactly this force that brings each individual into equilibrium with the rest of existence.
You were born to live the life of your dreams. Those dreams are sacred. Your highest vision of your life can and will manifest and it doesn't matter what the circumstances of your “Starting Point” were. It can not determine nor inhibit your destiny. The key is to follow your natural intuition, inspiration and momentum. That's it. And through committing yourself to this Universal Flow-State and following that and that alone, the Universal Forces, circumstances, opportunities, and miracles align to show you the truth of who you really are – an expression of the Divine SELF.
It is the Mission and Will of the O!O Academy of Magick Arts and Sciences to assist you in this realization – to help you navigate mind patterns... Continued 👇
Today we put our money where our mouth is, and made personal donations to the ACLU, the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund, and Black Lives Matter. We also joined a newly organized group whose aim is to educate white female dance educators and leaders in the DC region on racial injustice, and to help us continue to educate ourselves on steps we can take to dismantle systemic, institutional racism within our community. #education#stilllearning#tapdance#reform

This year 2020 has been crazy with everything that has gone in. With COVID 19 and The Black Lives Matters Movement.
This year has definitely taught me what and who really matters in life. Some of the things I’ve learned or focused on have been:
1. Treat everyone as equals no matter what there race, gender or ethnicity.
2. Spend time with people who matter to you. You never know what will happen.
3. Do what you believe in and don’t let people change your mind.
4. Stay healthy, physically and emotionally. Mental health is so important in this time.
5. Keep in touch with friends around you
6. Acknowledged my white privilege and how I don’t have to worry about my safety going out at night and many other reasons.
Comment below what you have learned this year?
BLACK LIVES MATTER. LETS WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE A CHANGE. I have tagged black accounts who have been spreading education about this movement .

Fala vestibulandos como vocês estão ? Hoje resumo sobre modelos atômicos já faz um tempo que postei algo parecido mas esse resuminho está mais completinho.
¡Bienvenidos! Los lenguajes de la Infancia es un Instagram creado para ayudar a visibilizar los múltiples lenguajes que tienen los niños y niñas desde el nacimiento. Como Educadora de Párvulos inspirada en la filosofía Reggio Emilia, considero fundamental conocer los lenguajes de cada niño y niña como ser individual, aprender a escucharlos con todos los sentidos, para así responder adecuada y oportunamente a sus necesidades, como también, poder potenciar su aprendizajes y desarrollo en todos los ámbitos.
Es por esto, que ofrezco asesoramiento y acompañamiento pedagógico online para padres, madres y cuidadores que deseen complementar la crianza, educarse sobre ciertos temas de la infancia, que consideren que necesitan ayuda en algún ámbito o para resolver cualquier duda.
We are so excited to re-open the #REVIVALFLAGSHIP TOMORROW! 🖤After the momentum of this past weeks peaceful protests and #blackouttuesday I felt it necessary to take it a step further and seek out a charity that speaks to a mission of education, which is the foundation of change for our future.
After researching dozens upon dozens of charities, @brosis512 spoke to me. Their mission, their opportunities, their impact over the past 25 years is nothing short of INCREDIBLE! The commitment and structure that is provided to impressionable youth and the proven results of their alumni give such hope to future generations. Breaking cycles and creating opportunity and support for overall success! 🖤
Founded in 1995, The Brotherhood/Sister Sol (Bro/Sis) provides comprehensive, holistic and long-term support services to youth who range in age from eight to twenty-two.
Bro/Sis offers wrap around evidence-based programming. The organization focuses on issues such as leadership development and educational achievement, sexual responsibility, sexism and misogyny, political education and social justice, Pan-African and Latinx history, and global awareness. Bro/Sis provides four-six year rites of passage programming, thorough five day a week after school care, school and home counseling, summer camps, job training and employment, college preparation, community organizing training, and international study programs to Africa, the Caribbean and South America.
Bro/Sis is unique in that we are locally based, yet with a national reach as we are: an evidence-based program that serves young people from economically poor communities and are seen as a model for the nation; we organize and advocate for social change; and we publish curricula and educate and train educators across the nation on our model.
Our Theory of Change is to provide multi-layered support, guidance, education and love to our membership, to teach them to have self-discipline and form order in their lives, and then to offer opportunities and access so that they may develop agency.

Highly grateful for the team in Nairobi, Kenya! Thank you @jothamkenlyne for being such a great leader! We have done it again. On Saturday 23rd May we distributed food to 15 households and gave 10kgs of rice to an orphanage. Some people who couldn't get food from us (because we only had so much) cried. Our help is vital. It is crucial that we continue our work. We are hoping to feed 700 people by the end of the year! .

Hear the story of how this project in Togo came about.

I gave her this particular arrangement of this song because I knew it would be the most challenging thing she’d ever seen to date. I knew it would take her a long time to learn and I knew she’d get frustrated. But I also knew she could do it and here she is playing it all the way through! So proud of you, @eggs_benedict120! You can do anything you set your mind to. Hard work always pays off in the piano world 🎹👏🏽
Today, my coworker was preparing to play Hangman for a fun way to practice literacy, as our students are just beginning to read and are very excited about forming words.
As she drew the platform on the board, I became very uncomfortable. I don't know the actual origins of this game, but the representation is very clear and lynching is a terrible part of our nation's past - and more unfortunately, of it's recent history.
Finally, I said, "This game is not politically correct. Take away the platform and just form the man. You can change the game. You do not have to play it this way just because this is the way it has always been played." Thank God my coworker is patient with me and the blunt ways that I say things at times, and that she is also committed to racial and cultural sensitivity in her instruction. She erased the platform immediately and we renamed the game.
This is one place where I am called to work for justice - in the day-to-day conversations, interactions and curriculum decisions in the classroom. It may seem like a small thing, but it is important. It is not always easy, and sometimes I am afraid or do not have the right words. I am not a director, or even a lead teacher, but still I have a voice. I don't accept that things have to continue as they are just because that's how they've always been. I don't want to stand by when my neighbors' lives are at stake; I want to stand up.
A bit of light and hope in this time- Remember that there are an amazing group of young people graduating right now, who are prepared to go into the world and change it for the better. I'm so grateful every day to know some of them through amazing organizations like @soccerwoborders and @r.i.transitions. Congratulations to all of the newcomer grads in Oakland, and to all of the Class of 2020!
Change your heart, at home, and then humanity. “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” — Nelson Mandella.
Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty, truth, and compassion against injustice, lying, & greed. We must all work to be better listeners, better allies, and better community members. #movementforchange

📌Reposting because @campaignzero has new info we can use when we meet with our local police chiefs to demand accountability and change: #8cantwait . I still feel grateful for the organization’s guidance when I’m at the table with the police leadership but that leadership has changed since I last did this so I have to go again. I learned during a forum yesterday that the new guy in charge needs to be visited. Follow @campaignzero , do what they teach & donate to the organization (as well as to the individuals who co-founded and built it. You can ask organizers and leaders for their cashapp, PayPal or how they would like you to spend a personal donation). The repost caption below is from few years ago when I met with former police chief in Cobb. ⭐️Notice the hashtag at the end-look up Antwon, school counselors.⭐️🖤
Repost from @penelope_plus
Swipe➡️. Sometimes solving complex problems such as police using deadly force against unarmed black people seems impossible and hopeless. Where do you even start? What do you say? That’s why I’m always glad to learn about organizations which make it easier to know what exact steps to follow to address a problem and hold the right people or officials accountable. Campaign Zero is a great organization co-founded a few years ago by Netta & @samswey & @iamderay & @mspackyetti that provides specific instructions for what to say and tackle when you get in front of your legislators and /or local police force. I recently met with the Chief of Police where I live, and I focused on solution number 6 & 7. I asked the Chief what is currently being done in these areas and where the gaps are. Luckily for me, he was gracious in answering all my questions and even gave me his personal cell number on the back of his card when I left his office. I’ve met with other local leaders and officials and have definitely not enjoyed such a warm welcome and willingness to address hard issues. So, sometimes it’s easier than we think it will be. Sometimes it’s not. Either way, we gotta schedule the meetings and demand accountability for the treatment of black lives until we’re all free. #AntwonRose
If we say we care then we must educate ourselves. Stay sincere and stay engaged, lift up others thoughts, hearts and minds. Privilege is a responsibility.
Watch, read, listen, learn, lead, teach, involve, evolve.
Try to reach a better understanding in order for real change, and then keep that energy moving forward beyond posting a black square in love and solidarity yesterday. It’s important and vital that it doesn’t stop. Complacency is easy when all the news and trending dies down. It’s a marathon not a sprint.
I understand that it’s a commitment not a one off post, actively continued long term effort and momentum is clearly needed (and I dare say 99% of true actions taken don’t involve social media).
Know more, think deeper, do better.
Stand up against everyday racism (and the kind that’s behind closed doors), if you see it - call that shit out.
Understanding systematic racism and Civil Rights movements is necessary. Allot of challenging and uncomfortable work, regardless of holding the right beliefs already. But every single day it needs to be done. I’ve personally been surrounded and influenced by black people and black culture my entire life. It is everything to me, respectfully, but I realise that love and awareness isn’t enough, and it’s not about me at all.
So always, from the bottom of my heart...
Show up and support, reach out. Raise your voice, use your platform. Keep learning and understanding.
Knowledge is power, so study up.

Listening to the audiobook: Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by @renieddolodge
Inspired by @georgeashwell’s post and wanted to share a similar sentiment.
Racism is everywhere, every day. The problem is deep rooted, complex and systematic. As a white person of privilege (and by that I definitely don’t mean from a position of wealth) I can never understand, or ever truly fully know or even begin to imagine. I do not know how it feels to be oppressed by a corrupt global institutionalised system set up against me, experience racial persecution, prejudice or profiling, or to literally fear for my life because of the colour of my skin. I take so much for granted in this world, despite however aware I think I am.
But I can read, listen, learn, educate myself, and try to understand.
I can stand up in solidarity and speak out for what’s right, for justice. Try to be part of a solution.
Racism is a historically insidious disease kept in place by money and power, that won’t change through a trending post. Doesn’t stop when the dust settles. The work will never be over until hashtags like these don’t exist anymore. It’s about the violation of basic human/civil rights on every level.
I understand socially constructed ‘whiteness’ that skin colour equals privilege, but my own acknowledgement of that isn’t enough or the importance here.
We must all stand up for what is wrong and hold people directly accountable. Every day racism - Call that shit out!
So do what you can, talk to your family & friends, educate yourself, have those uncomfortable conversations, donate money, use your platform. Realise we can affect meaningful real change if we do it together, actively taking long-term action, but every voice needs to be heard.
Talking to the people who look like me. It has long been time to play our part to change this evil hatred. Please don’t be silent and don’t be ignorant, otherwise it’s compliance. Doing nothing always supports something. Your heart knows this is your fight too, and requires courage, involvement, willingness and conviction. It needs to be said.
Be an ally to the cause. Stand alongside with all those who fight against racism.
It is not enough to be quietly non-racist.
Now is the time to be actively anti-racist.
You’re with it. Or you’re not.
Silence is betrayal.
