This is Jacob Lawrence’s piece ‘General Toussaint L’Ouverture’. Lawrence was only twenty-one years old when he finished the monumental forty-one panel Toussaint L’Ouverture series (1938). In 1986, this piece was the first painting of the series to be issued within a silkscreen edition.
"Any community seriously concerned with its own freedom has to be concerned about other peoples’ freedom as well. The victory of oppressed people anywhere in the world is a victory for Black people. Each time one of imperialism’s tentacles is cut off we are closer to liberation […] Imperialism is an international system of exploitation, and, we, as revolutionaries, need to be internationalists to defeat it."
"It’s physically impossible for a woman to reach an orgasm without a man. No, don’t look at me like that - it’s a fact of biology! This explains why women don’t masturbate the way men do, and why lesbian relationships don’t last. Look it up."

My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.
Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!
"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.
"But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one’s life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your Favorited fountain? And then to do it again the next day?"
