México: Vestigios de la Narcoviolencia, featuring Miguel A. Aragón,  is a printmaking exhibit exploring violence related to the narcotics trade in Mexico. Aragón’s reductive print aesthetic creates a new visual language based on the idea of erasure. 

Aragón, whose artwork has been exhibited internationally, is an assistant professor in printmaking at the CUNY College of Staten Island.

It seems long forgotten that there was about a 50 year period out on the prairies when it was illegal for anyone who was not Native American or African American to live in, or even travel through, Indian Territory.  Exceptions, the US Military protecting the interests of Native Americans and Christian missionaries paid by the nations to teach American language and culture. 


Talk to the kids out of Oklahoma's All-Black Towns and they'll tell you the word "Cowboy" had its origins in this time, 1830s  Indian Territory. Urban legend has it, that the word that by the 1880s reached the rest of the west, began as a way to describe the African slaves and free Blacks in the territory who worked cattle. 


​Through March 17. 2019, Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa exhibits The Chisholm Kid, Lone Fighter for Justice for All paying, according to Gilcrease "homage to the many black cowboys who drove longhorns up the Chisholm Trail out of Texas and across Indian Territory to the railroad trailheads in Kansas during the years following the Civil War. Once freedom arrived, many freedmen found work as cowboys and applied their skills and experiences learned when they were slaved to earning a living on the back of a horse. While no definitive numbers exist, it’s estimated that at least 25 percent of all cowboys on the trail during this period were African American."

"The Chisholm Kid exhibition features panels from the trailblazing color comic strip of the same name that ran in the early 1950s in the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation’s pre-eminent African American newspapers. The Chisholm Kid is both historically and culturally significant due to the strip’s hero, the Chisholm Kid, being presented as a positive force for good at a time when so many images of African Americans in all forms of popular culture reflected negative stereotypes. These positive depictions of a black hero positioned The Chisholm Kid as an equal to his white Western comic strip contemporaries, Hopalong Cassidy and The Lone Ranger."

"For African American audiences of the day, The Chisholm Kid was an American hero, fully empowered with civil rights, the very rights denied those African Americans reading the strip. In many ways The Chisholm Kid was a harbinger for the civil rights movement, especially considering that the strip began its run several years before the seminal 1954 Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education. Regrettably, by the time that African Americans across the nation were fully demanding the rights and equality promised all Americans in the 14th and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, The Chisholm Kid as a comic strip had ended its run, leaving the Kid unable to continue his fearless fight for justice for all. Despite no longer being on the trail, The Chisholm Kid’s spirit of justice for all was present in the civil rights campaigns of the 1960s, and fully personified in Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of being judged by the content of one’s character, not the color of one’s skin."


Not sure you'll run into Rod Stone {aka THE CHISHOLM KID],but, you can still read the New Pittsburgh Courier online, daily.

The Chisholm Kid: Lone Fighter for Justice for All is curated by the Museum of UnCut Funk and includes comic strips from the museum’s archives, the estate of the publisher, and the University of Michigan Special Collections Library.

City of Tulsa *

On the homepage, we mentioned the tiny island nation of Barbados for a reason.  It's time.  Tulsa...a future world class city, needs world class education.  NORTH TULSA is the perfect place to start.  In fact, the answer to every "under-served" US community is simple. The only way out...it's time to flip the model...OVERSERVE.  It's not just North Tulsa...it's Tulsa.  Our entire city deserves better...the best education.  If a nation with a population a quarter of the size Tulsa's can out-class Japan.  Surely, one of America's largest cities can find its way to GIGANTICALLY AWESOME EDUCATION 4 everyone
