Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!
The Day the Music Burned, on New York Times Magazine—“Among the incinerated Decca masters were recordings by titanic figures in American music: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland.”
I Can No Longer Continue to Live Here, on Politico—“What’s driving so many Honduran women to the U.S. border? The reality is worse than you’ve heard.”
Sarah Dye, aka Volkmom, Fascist at Schooner Creek Farms from Nashville, Indiana, on Panic in the Discord—“She also tells us that she home schools her children, including a reference to a homophobic slur in reference to books she has had to sift through. She tells us that she has a “normie FB” which she uses to access groups for home schooling.”A Pro-Life Case for Elizabeth Warren, on VoxNova—“If Roe were overturned, would I advocate that my state pass laws to outlaw abortion? I would, but only within the matrix of ‘a social order that welcomes children and an economic order that supports families’ … And what would that matrix look like? For my money, it would look a lot like Elizabeth Warren’s presidential platform.”
“When They See Us” Shows How Black Slang Was Criminalized For The Central Park 5 & It Still Is Today, on Bustle—“‘The fact that wilin’ became wilding, became wolf pack, became these boys are animals… I remember for the first time realizing that the news might not be true, that the news is something that you have to really think about and question,’ DuVernay told The Hollywood Reporter.”
