How Is Publishing Doing Now That The We Need Diverse Books Movement Is Three Years Old?

Sometimes, publishing companies or individuals have had to start their own imprints. For instance: Salaam Reads "takes submissions directly from writers. Zareen Jaffery, the imprint’s executive editor (who is also Muslim), says this practice grew out of feedback she received from Muslim writers, who said it was difficult to find an agent."

China calls America selfish amid Trump attempt to revive coal

China is uneasy leading the way on climate action without the help of the United States, according to an editorial in Chinese state media. After President Donald Trump signed his executive order rolling back the Clean Power Plan this week, an article ran in the Global Times critical of Trump’s moves. The editorial said, “…what the US is doing undermines the other countries’ dedication to implement the Paris Agreement.” China relied on coal for development, but in recent years has made strides...

New York Museums In All-Out Resistance To Trumpism

"The Whitney may have been the first New York museum to signal its resistance to the new Administration, but waves of actions have followed. No major institution closed in response to the #J20 movement’s call for an art strike during the Inauguration, but the Whitney invited Occupy Museums to program a series of talks in its theatre, and the Brooklyn Museum hosted a seven-hour reading of Langston Hughes’s poem “Let America Be America Again.” Most significant, the week after Trump signed his now ...

Deborah Borda Speaks Out: New Administration's Policies Are A Disaster For Our Culture

"As the chief executive of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, it is the rare occasion that moves me to comment on the actions of our federal government. However, in less than two weeks, our new president has attempted to limit public discourse, diminish cultural exchange and bully our neighbors. The executive order that temporarily — for now at least — bars entry into the U.S. of individuals from seven Muslim-majority nations is a terrible thing for America’s creative community, in whose work we find...

Interview with Noor Tagouri (I can’t believe it myself…)

Noor Tagouri is one of the most high-profile young people in the USA today. She is a journalist, an activist, a speaker and many other things and she was recently involved in a controversy (of sorts) because she is the first hijab-wearing woman to give an interview in Playboy. Something I only found out after I looked her up. My first contact with Noor Tagouri was her TEDx talk (because I am subscribed to the Youtube channel): And since I have interviewed two other Muslim ladies here on the blog...

Impressions From Texas

by Jonathan Blaustein When I came home and announced I like Texas, my father looked as if I’d declared myself Nazi. The shock was real, even if the anger was feigned. Negative impressions of Texas run deep here in New Mexico, as we encounter the flashier, private-tour-bus-driving Texan tourists each summer. Like any bias, my own personal prejudices were hard to maintain, once I started visiting the state a few years ago. This time I wanted to check out Dallas, since even Texans like to mock ...
