Lagos: Razones para enamorarte de Canadá

Yannis Lobaina

En el post de hoy, Lagos: Razones para enamorarte de Canadá. Forma parte de una gran lista de sitios que he visitado hasta ahora. Y que desde ya son mis preferidos. Cada año irá en crescendo, ya que amo viajar, descubrir, y conocer nuevos lugares.

Mi Moleskine estará feliz de tener un buen uso. Estos lugares, de los cuales estoy profundamente enamorada desde ya. Aunque el invierno, es duro para nosotros los inmigrantes del Caribe. No debemos dejar de disfrutar cada estación. Este país, Canadá, tiene millones de rincones naturales, impresionantemente hermosos.

Desde el avión, pude comprobar lo que mi esposo y las clases de geografía me enseñaron: Canadá comprende un inmenso territorio entre elocéano Pacífico, al oeste, y elocéano Atlántico, al este; debido a esto su lema de Estado es: «A Mari Usque Ad Mare» (latín: De mar…

16 libros para ayudarlos a hablar sobre la raza con tus niños pequeños.

16 books to help them talk about race with your young children.

Hace poco,   encontré este blog que me gusta mucho, se llama PureWow  en donde siempre publican excelentes temas  educativos para la familia. Esta semana, me hago eco de esta importante lista de libros,  para leerles a nuestros niños en casa y de esta manera educarlos en temas vitales como son: raza, el derecho de ser libre, la sexualidad, etc. 

Añadí a esta lista cuatro libros , que le he leído a mi hija Amélie, y que me parecen  que pueden ser referentes para tener en cuenta.

Si estás en Toronto, Canadá, te recomiendo comprar tus libros aquí, https://www.adifferentbooklist.com/ en una de mis Librerías preferida,  es una hermosa  Librería multicultural canadiense, especializada en Literatura de la diáspora africana y del Caribe entre otras temáticas globales.

Les dejo el post completo aquí. Les deseo una linda semana, cuídense mucho, Abrazos!

12 Books to Help You Discuss Race with Young Kids.

By Dara Katz | Jun. 8, 2020

It’s time to talk about race. Why? In a piece for CNN, Jennifer Harvey, author of Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust Americawrote, “Do our kids know it’s not only OK to notice racial differences, but that it’s a good and important thing to do? We have to show our kids these are discussions we want to have with them, otherwise white kids learn race talk is taboo.”

So, how do you talk to a toddler or young child about this? Begin by filling your bookshelves with non-white voices and imagery, and use the differences—and shared experiences—you see on the page to guide a conversation. Here are some wonderful books to start with.

“Rebirth” Mi primera serie fotografíca en Toronto.

 

Hola, queridos amigos, lectores, he estado muy complicada, preparando como les comenté en el post anterior,  mi primera oportunidad de exponer mis fotos. Esta vez, pensada como una serie, colección, como un todo, parte de  mi discurso  visual.

Estoy muy feliz, de esta gran oportunidad que RAW Artist me ha brindado. Será, una ventana, un escaparate, otro modo de exponer más allá de mi cuenta de Instagram mis instantaneas.

 

Por qué Rebirth?   Un nuevo período de crecimiento de algo, o un momento en que algo que era popular en el pasado se vuelve popular nuevamente:

RENACIMIENTO: Es mi primera serie de fotografía. Dónde exploro la conexión entre la madre natura y  la mujer.  Como mujer, hemos estado asociadas con la naturaleza durante mucho tiempo, metafóricamente, como “madre tierra”. Me encanta explorar la relación entre la naturaleza y la forma femenina en mi fotografía. Ser madre y estar en contacto con la naturaleza me ha ayudado a controlar mis penas de ser inmigrante.
