Another flag burns.#shawshooting

holy shit. no noo no no no i do NOT care the cause, i don’t CARE what the supreme court says you do NOT fucking burn the flag what the FUCK is your problem. disrespectful bags of shit oh my GOD

That thing where a certain group of people are more outraged over a piece of polysynthetic fiber than the horrific loss of Black life in this country.

When you know that the cop who shoots you dead will get paid administrative leave, while his comrades wear rubber bracelets supporting him, because of course he feared for his life—because it was just him, his gun, and his years of training and experience, all hopelessly outmatched by the pigment in your skin—what did that flag mean anyway?

Oh my God, that lantana is beautiful. Do you know it’s considered a WEED in some places?

Celeste West

Today’s submission comes from Tina Perricone, Celeste’s widow. The black-and-white photo below was taken by Denis Manness and published in Synergy Magazine.

Celeste West (1942-2008) quite deservedly belongs in whatever women in library hall of fame there might ever be. In “Unbossed and Unbought: Booklegger Press—the First Women-Owned American Library Publisher”*, Toni Samek describes West’s concern with self-censorship among librarians and the limitations of a philosophy of neutrality. West founded “Booklegger Press, the first women-owned American library published, [which] became a key communication tool for some of librarianship’s leading alternative voices in the 1970s, countered mainstream library publishing, challenged limitations to freedom of expression within librarianship, introduced a wave of alternative library publishing that persists to this day, served as an open forum for library workers’ dissent, and advanced women’s library causes, as well as those of other alienated library groups, such as gays and lesbians, politically active library school students, individuals interested in library unions, and alternative library publishers.”

Library Juice Press published a book about her in 2010; here is the paragraph that they have describing her:

She Was a Booklegger: Remembering Celeste West is a compilation of reflections and tales from friends and other admirers who were influenced and inspired by this larger than life feminist librarian, lesbian, publisher, and activist.
