Join Virtual Parlor Chat on Wednesday 2/15 at 7PM (registration link in bio), where Kamau Ware of Black Gotham Experience will share his process creating NORTHUP, an audio experience which will premiere at the Morris-Jumel Mansion later this month. NORTHUP is about Anne Hampton Northup, a Black woman whose life was intertwined with the history of the Mansion but has been obscured by a system from which white supremacism is nurtured. Anne's presence within the historic record is also overshadowed by the miraculous story of her husband, Solomon Northup, author of Twelve Years a Slave.

Anne was born around 1808 in Sandy Hill (near Saratoga Springs), New York, to free-Black parents who were property-owning citizens. Despite the legal racial classification as Black as indicated in some census records, the family claimed Black, White, and Native ancestry. In 1829, Anne married Solomon, a professional violinist, with whom she had three children. However in 1841 Anne’s husband suddenly and mysteriously disappeared while in Washington, D.C. for a musical engagement.

Anne began working in domestic service in her teens and was renowned for her skills as a cook. She was working at Sherrill’s Coffee House in Saratoga, NY when her husband was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841. Solomon was able to send Anne a letter when he reached New Orleans, informing her that he had been kidnapped, but he was soon sold to another location.

During the period of Solomon’s unknown whereabouts, Anne became her family’s sole provider while trying to locate and rescue her missing husband. During the summer of 1841, Eliza Jumel hired Anne Northup and her children to work at the Mansion, where the family was employed from 1841-1843.

Solomon' story is a powerful epic, lived by a Black man. The story of his wife, Anne, is just as powerful. Join our Virtual Parlor Chat on Wednesday to learn more about Anne Northup and the NORTHUP audio experience, produced by Black Gotham Experience, commissioned by the Morris-Jumel Mansion and funded by Humanities New York.

And here we are on the final day of Kwanzaa. Today’s principal is Imani meaning “Faith”. Without confidence in the unseen, it will remain so.

Today is the sixth day of Kwanzaa. An African Diasporic Holiday founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga in 1966 that celebrates family, community, and culture. Kwanzaa is celebrated in a variety of ways and centralize on the seven principles that are acknowledged over seven days from December 26th to January 1st.

Today’s principle is Kuumba (Creativity).

Where would we be without creativity? We are living the dreams of our ancestors. We must push our dreams with creativity for the unborn. Time is a big circle with now in the middle. Use your imagination.

🌍

We’re still buzzing off the April premier of our walk-based experience, “kuzaliwa”, commissioned by the legendary Apollo Theater. Kuzaliwa is Swahili for “birth”, a word we felt was more aligned with the arc of the African Diaspora than “rebirth”. We situate the “Harlem Renaissance” as a conception period for a global Black identity that came into fruition in 1969. Kuzaliwa also happens to be the name of a Holiday created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, the founder of Kwanzaa, to celebrate the life of Malcolm X. The first Kuzaliwa Holiday was celebrated in New York, Pittsburgh, and Compton in 1967, two months after the first Kwanzaa. On this day of Kuumba (Creativity), we salute the liberating power of imagination in the Black experience before, during, and after the “Harlem Renaissance”.

Today is the fifth day of Kwanzaa. An African Diasporic Holiday founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga in 1966 that celebrates family, community, and culture. Kwanzaa is celebrated in a variety of ways and centralize on the seven principles that are acknowledged over seven days from December 26th to January 1st.

Today’s principle is Nia (Purpose).

The Kwanzaa art featured in this post is long time friend of BGX, Adrian Franks

Purpose is the heart of Black Gotham Experience. It started with the question from a young Black girl from Brooklyn in 2008. “Where were the Black people?”

Honoring and answering that question has been the purpose holding our community together. Twelve years strong and expanding, we remember together what has been obscure for centuries.

Today’s principle is Kujichagulia (Self Determination).

The Kwanzaa art featured in this post is long time friend of BGX, Adrian Franks

Self Determination is a North Star principle for Black Gotham Experience. When our first walks started in 2010, our aim was to speak up for the African Diasporic history that was missing from public consciousness. We are thankful for this principle and hope the many souls that have been touched by our programs can appreciate the fertile ground of self determination. We want to thank our community & members for powering our purpose.

Why is this still an argument we, as Indigenous people, still have to fight?

Repost from

Indigenous activists and organizations are urging consumers to boycott Avatar: The Way of Water. The director, James Cameron, likened the story of the Lakota Sioux to the making of the movie. Despite that, there is no actual representation of Lakota Sioux in the film. In addition, despite lumping together stories of marginalized Indigenous people, the cast is played by non-indigenous people, a racist caricature coined by activists as “Blueface”.

On Twitter, Dr. BlackDeer offered a list of sci-fi films by Indigenous people telling their own stories to watch instead, which we’ve compiled in the last slide.

Lack of Native representation is a persistent problem in Hollywood, leading to decades of movies and other forms of media that exploit Native culture and identities and often perpetuate racist stereotypes.

If you’re alone, I am alone with you.

If you’re scared, I am scared with you.

If you need hope, I hope with you.

And I am everyone. And you are everyone. And we are all everyone we can be, in the moments we are given, in this time that we are tested.
______

We say trans day of remembrance, resistance, and resilience. I also add rest because when you’re always under attack none of this comes as a surprise, and the only way to stay alive is to stay ready.

Three years ago I was fortunate enough to be included in the “Others Built New York” mural with Black Gotham Experience. My shirt originally said but the artist obliged when I made the request to have it read . There I was on a multi-hundred foot long mural on Pier 17 with Sylvia Rivera, James Baldwin, Alvin Ailey, celebrating my 30th birthday and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. “Our great city is a better and more interesting place because others have resisted.”

Sending love to everyone who’s got a heart. Everyone who’s looking for safe spaces. Everyone who’s doing the work of liberation. The others.
