CultureHISTORY: Tommie Smith and John Carlos, Olympics 1968

“We were just human beings who saw a need to bring attention to the inequality in our country.” - Tommie Smith

On this date (10/16) in 1968, the ‘black power’ salute at the Summer Olympics in Mexico City. One of my favorite historical photos and one of the most powerful moments in black history. More background here.

It’s important for everyone to begin thinking and behaving in ways that relinquish white privilege and white supremacy when it noticeably impacts daily life. Because it’s not about admitting it anymore. It’s about giving it up. Here’s a few ways how that can happen.

This is the tale of a project from fiber to FO.

Soon after getting my spinning wheel (in 2008!), I ordered spinning fiber from the now-defunct FreckleFaceFibers Etsy shop (which is sad, because she had some amazing stuff). It was the first thing spun on the wheel, and the first time I tried Navajo plying. And of course it showed — the yarn was terribly over-plied, kinked and ropey. The finished yarn was buried in the stash, waiting for the perfect project to show the subtle striping.

Then my friend Heidi designed yet another beautiful shawl and I knew this was it.

The finished shawl was soaked in warm water with wool wash, then with hair conditioner — and it softened considerably. It feels woolly and Falkland-y but not at all scratchy. Perfect!

Love it #knit
