Black History Carnival

The very first Ourstory Carnival is to be posted on Saturday 24 February (deadline for submissions 22 Feb), at Taking Place, for black, Asian, Latino, indigenous American, etc, histories.

We want you to write the stories that are rarely or never told; stories that have been forgotten; stories that helped define you and us. They can be stories of lesser known figures or actions of the past. They can be stories from your family. The idea is to breakdown the hierarchical approach to history that only shares stories to promote patriotism and pacifism. We want to create an ever-evolving ourstory of what makes us who we are. A collective ourstory that informs the present and reminds us that each and every one of us are responsible for how ourstory will be told in the future.

There is a Blog Carnival submission form.
