Cannes Film Review: ‘Port Authority’

Selling realness.

These Activists Are Using Social Media To Empower Black Women — & You Should Be Following

Social media tends to get a bad rap — and for good reason. We can all agree that plenty of things in life are more enriching than the hours we spend hunched over scrollable feeds on our phones, saving astrology memes, skimming mega-captions, and ogling strangers' European vacations. That said, with a bit of curation, it is possible for our social media feeds to do more than just spark FOMO — they can be a source of inspiration and maybe even a force for good.In a world where it often feels like...

AK Monthly Recap — April 2019

I used to freak out whenever I spent a month without leaving the confines of New York City. It brings to mind that episode of Sex and the City when Miranda briefly dates the guy who hasn’t left Manhattan in a decade. These days, it happens about once a year, but I don’t mind anymore. It’s nice to have that respite from trips and concentrate on the things that mean most to me — spending time with friends and family, working out, and enjoying my routines. And of all months to spend ensconced in N...

Listening to and Learning From Each Other

I live in the Neukölln section of Berlin, an area of town with a gritty, working-class history. I live surrounded by Turkish, Arabic and, as of recently, Syrian people. Yet beyond food shopping, there is little opportunity for me to meet or mingle with them, little chance for real interaction. It feels strange. Disconnected. This disconnection with other groups in my neighbourhood is indicative of society as a whole. Groups existing side-by-side, yet not communicating, not connecting. And this d...
