Here is one of my favorite recent finds: a tumblr blog on the fashion history of women of color in the US.

SO lovely!

Testing your knowledge of African American women in history

I am actively ashamed at how poorly I did on this on quiz from Ms. Magazine on African American women in US history which, unlike most online quizzes, is actually useful and educational!

Go take it!

Take a look at this nice collection of essays edited by J. Courtney Sullivan and Courtney Martin, available from Seal Press.

I’m not sure I had a click! moment.  I am old enough that I remember my father saying “That’s women’s work” snidely, while my mother worked both his job and, supposedly, her job.  A large portion of that rubbed off on me, prompting me to ask questions about who, actually, benefited from the rigid distribution of roles by gender.
