ohfridakahlo:

Frida’s last public appearance, on July 2, 1954, at a rally protesting C.I.A. involvement in Guatemala.  Diego is behind her.  Juan O’Gorman to her right.“What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation.”— Coco Fusco on her Amerindians piece from 1992 with Guillermo Gómez-Peña

"Studying overseas  When I heard about the blast And I knew the little girls Who were killed in Alabama It was Carole, Addie Mae Cynthia & Denise The Klan got away In cahoots with the police Knew that it was coming When the Panthers started forming So I booked the first flight to the states In the morning To show them my solidarity Tightened up my afro Books in my hand Revolution in my heart So I used my education To combat the injustice It was more Than Malcolm X and Martin Luther In the trenches
Sistah soldiers put ya rifles up Angela Davis ride when the Klan try to light us up” - rapping in the perspective of Angela Davis and a dedication to the four little girls killed in a church bombing in Birmingham this day 51 years ago (1963) “Heart” off my debut LP 💔💔💔💔 #throwyourheartsup

"Studying overseas
When I heard about the blast
And I knew the little girls
Who were killed in Alabama
It was Carole, Addie Mae
Cynthia & Denise
The Klan got away
In cahoots with the police
Knew that it was coming
When the Panthers started forming
So I booked the first flight to the states
In the morning
To show them my solidarity
Tightened up my afro
Books in my hand
Revolution in my heart
So I used my education
To combat the injustice
It was more
Than Malcolm X and Martin Luther
In the trenches

Sistah soldiers put ya rifles up
Angela Davis ride when the Klan try to light us up” - rapping in the perspective of Angela Davis and a dedication to the four little girls killed in a church bombing in Birmingham this day 51 years ago (1963) “Heart” off my debut LP
