“Yesterday, a coalition of black leaders and allies joined together at the Governor’s Mansion to call for Ralph Northam to resign. The coalition was a blend of elected officials, organization leaders, and individuals who came together to stand as a united front. Evidence of that solidarity is the People’s Constitution, started by Justice RVA, that is a running list of people’s demands for elected officials to act on. Prior to this event, Virginia Black Politicos defined their demands and added them to the People’s Constitution. As the movement continues, organizations and individuals have begun to come together where they have common ground and make a stand to dismantle white supremacy. Speaking at the event was Chelsea Higgs Wise, Rebecca Keel, #RVACouncil member Dr. Mike Jones, and Charlottesville Council member Dr. Wes Bellamy. Following the speeches, the coalition stood behind the banner for unity and marched onto Capitol Square grounds to stand directly in front of the Governor’s Mansion.” @rvadirt #queerappalachia #electricdirt

Kind of how my mind is feeling lately—foggy with images just at the periphery. Can’t wait to get over this cold and dreary hump of February. “Get ink, shed tears” as Pasternak wrote. at Westmoreland County, PA

The final album of the late, great Levon Helm. This was also the fitting winner of the inaugural Grammy for Best Americana album. Helm may not have been a songwriter but his solo output was all about playing songs he loved with other great musicians. Not a bad job to have. • • • • #record #records #recordcollection #recordcollecting #recordcollector #vinylrecords #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollecting #audiophile #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyllove #recordoftheday #albumoftheday #vinyljunkie #nowspinning #nowplaying #hifi #audiophile #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylcommunity #levonhelm #theband #thelastwaltz #grammy #americana #electricdirt #folk #musicfrombigpink at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

I’m not usually the type to post a photo of my lunch, but then again, my lunch isn’t usually a breathtaking work of visual art! Garlic, Rosemary, & African Blue Basil flowers making sure I get my recommended daily intake of purple. 💜🌸 #EatFlowers at Wild Willow Farm

Some days, I think our field goes on forever. Other days, when the blanket of fog hangs at the periphery of our fence line, I see just how small this world of ours is. at Pennsylvania

Reposted from @queerappalachia - @chicoryzine#blackhistory // Emma Dupree (1897-1992) was an influential black herbalist from Pitt County in North Carolina. She was known locally as “granny woman.” She was the daughter of freed slaves and grew up on the Tar River. She was known for her work with native herbs: Sassafras, white mint, double tansy, rabbit tobacco, maypop, mullein, catnip, horseradish, and silkweed. It’s a terrible shame that not much has been written about her on the internet. Here is an excerpt from an article published shortly after her death: From the time she could walk, Emma felt drawn to the land. She would roam the woods, plucking, sniffing, tasting weeds. She grew up that way, collecting the leaves, stems, roots and bark of sweet gum, white mint, mullen, sassafras in her coattail or a tin bucket. She'd tote them back to the farm, rinse them in well water and tie them in bunches to dry. In the backyard, she'd raise a fire under a kettle and boil her herbs to a bubbly froth, then pour it up in brown-necked stone jugs: A white-mint potion for poor circulation; catnip tea for babies with colic; tansy tea - hot or cold - for low blood sugar; mullein tea for a stomach ache. Mixed with molasses or peppermint candy to knock out the bitterness. Her kind of folk medicine dates back centuries. In the 1600s, African slaves brought root-doctor remedies to America. Indians and immigrants had cure-alls, too. In some rural areas, scattered herbalists still practice. #booksbrunchbotanica #herbs #bipocherbalists #emmadupree #pittcounty #northcarolina #folkmedicine #plantmedicine #plantmagic #herbalist #herbalism #tinctures #blackherbalist #ancestors #ancestral #revisionisthistory #bipocherbalists#chicoryzine #queerappalachia #electricdirt - #regrann

So happy to share two of my edits from Friday’s session. First image is for my wip series nude bodies in southern land (still working on an official title). Second image was for my client. I’m so blessed and thankful to have wonderful clients who let me take shots for my own work as well as trusting me to fulfill their vision for their own personal photographs. 💖 I’m just so mushy and gushing with love right now. . . Thank you @kenzykreepin for being such an excellent model and muse. Romping through thorny brush and jumping into freezing creeks...among other adventures. Y’all, she is the next Tess Holiday, I swear. And special thank you @heathen.hammock for being the face of true, southern hospitality and for allowing us to romp around this amazing land. I cannot wait to go back south and work with these two beautiful souls again. ❤️ Back to editing I go.... at Triple Creek Plantation

If I had to count the number of times I've cried in the past 2 years, 90% of them would have been within the last month. I've taken the time I needed to heal and want to thank the friends of mine who stepped in when I was struggling. I have been doing so much better recently, thanks to all of you 🤗😘. In fact, it's been a entire week since I cried last 🚩! . . i cried today, 2017 . . #stilllife #thepinklemonade #lovewatts #ratedmodernart #contemporaryartist #thetaxcollection #ruralresistance #electricdirt #icriedtoday

Watch classism work 👀 _ Reposted from @queerappalachia - One year ago today when I posted these y’all had over 500 comments deconstructing class consciousness from a rural lens. At the time, that was the most comments we had ever had on a post. When I made these images, I was spending a lot of time thinking about the way success is branded and marketed to us & how expensive it is to be poor.
