  6. "Adaeze means the daughter of a king in Igbo. Igbos do not believe in Kings. They have a traditional democratic system where women and men have their peer groups and are represented. I think the name is ironic. Kings never truly existed in Igboland till the colonizers arrived. Ada in Igbo means daughter. First daughter to be precise. It is one of the most beautiful names in Igbo. It is also a title for first daughters. Umuada are a group of women from the same community who meet up to discuss on how to improve their various communities. In Nigeria, Igbo women can be seen every Sunday afternoon with colorful wrappers, running to meet up with their fellow women from the same village no matter how far away from home they are. I used to watch in amazement as they helped each other, warning abusive husbands and praising women who were doing great in business while helping others who needed help. I grew up surrounded by such women who would not let you lift a finger during your celebration. You should see them, cooking together, laughing together and celebrating each other. Igbo men would say, no matter what you do never make Umuada angry. Simply put, do not hurt their sisters."

  10. "Now “tribal trends” are totally “in.” You can walk into any store in the mall and see “Native” imagery everywhere. As a Native person, when I look at them, I can’t help but remember the not-so-distant past when my people weren’t allowed, by law, to wear these things. It’s such a constant reminder of the colonial power structures still in place. Back in the day, white people had the power to take away our culture, and now they have the power to wear it however they see fit. These are our images, our cultural symbols, yet we are completely powerless to have control over them."

    Meet Jedidah Isler

    She is the first black woman to earn a PhD in astronomy from Yale University.

    As much as she loves astrophysics, Isler is very aware of the barriers that still remain for young women of color going into science. “It’s unfortunately an as-yet-unresolved part of the experience,” she says. She works to lower those barriers, and also to improve the atmosphere for women of color once they become scientists, noting that “they often face unique barriers as a result of their position at the intersection of race and gender, not to mention class, socioeconomic status and potentially a number of other identities.”

    While Isler recounts instances of overt racial and gender discrimination that are jaw-dropping, she says more subtle things happen more often. Isler works with the American Astronomical Society’s commission on the status of minorities in astronomy.

    She also believes that while things will improve as more women of color enter the sciences, institutions must lead the way toward creating positive environments for diverse student populations. That is why she is active in directly engaging young women of color: for example participating in a career exploration panel on behalf of the Women’s Commission out of the City of Syracuse Mayor’s Office, meeting with high-achieving middle-school girls. She is also on the board of trustees at the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST).

    “Whether I like it or not, I’m one of only a few women of color in this position,” she says. “Addressing these larger issues of access to education and career exploration are just as important as the astrophysical work that I do.”

    Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.
