Assata: In her own words
My name is Assata (“She who struggles”) Shakur (“the thankful one”), and I am a 20th century escaped slave. Because of government persecution, I was left with no other choice than to flee from the political repression, racism and violence that dominate the US government’s policy towards people of color. I am an ex-political prisoner, and I have been living in exile in Cuba since 1984. I have been a political activist most of my life, and although the U.S. government has done everything in its power to criminalize me, I am not a criminal, nor have I ever been one.
In the 1960s, I participated in various struggles: the Black liberation movement, the student rights movement, and the movement to end the war in Vietnam. I joined the Black Panther Party. By 1969 the Black Panther Party had become the number one organization targeted by the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, because the Black Panther Party demanded the total liberation of Black people, J. Edgar Hoover called it, “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country”, and vowed to destroy it and its leaders and activists.”

8-Bit Fashion by Kunihiko Morinaga
Anrealage is a shop in Harajuku, Tokyo that specializes in pixelated clothing designs, but if you visit their store you can see an entire room in all its nostalgic 8-bit glory, right down to the pixelized light bulbs (that work!) and pixel carpet patterns. I’m just curious where they keep the power-ups.

Take note children!
This is my ruler and notepad tattoo. I believe that tattoos can be used for functionality as well as memory. I’m a designer, so I use the ruler for buttons, zippers, and trim widths. Usually the notepad has an address or to-do list on it. :)
