Death Before Dying: Death Row Exoneree on Solitary Confinement

 
Published on Jul 23, 2013

From 1994 to 2006, Anthony Graves spent at least 22 hours a day locked alone in a small cell waiting to die -- all for a crime he did not commit. During those years, 400 other prisoners were also locked alone on Texas' death row. 
Watch this video to hear Anthony's story.

Tribute to Hemingway

Untitled

Hemingway with one of his cats


The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong
in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills.
It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.
If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too
but there will be no special hurry.

Tribute to Mayakovsky





















Vladimir Mayakovsky
1925 (author unknown)

Past One O’Clock ... 

Past one o’clock. You must have gone to bed.
The Milky Way streams silver through the night.
I’m in no hurry; with lightning telegrams
I have no cause to wake or trouble you.
And, as they say, the incident is closed.
Love’s boat has smashed against the daily grind.
Now you and I are quits. Why bother then
To balance mutual sorrows, pains, and hurts.
Behold what quiet settles on the world.
Night wraps the sky in tribute from the stars.
In hours like these, one rises to address
The ages, history, and all creation.

- Vladimir Mayakovsky -

July 19, 1893 - April 14, 1930

Source: The Bedbug and selected poetry, translated by Max Hayward and George Reavey. Meridian Books, New York, 1960; Transcribed: by Mitch Abidor.
This poem was found among Mayakovsky’s papers after his suicide on April 14, 1930. He had used the middle section,
with slight changes, as an epilogue to his suicide note.

On His 95th Birthday, the Story of Nelson Mandela's Struggle Told Outside His Old Soweto Home

On His 95th Birthday, the Story of Nelson Mandela's Struggle Told Outside His Old Soweto Home

As the world marks the 95th birthday of Nelson Mandela,
South Africa’s first black president and a beloved symbol
of the country’s struggle to end apartheid, longtime South African activist Trevor Ngwane takes Democracy Now! 
on a tour of the township of Soweto. Speaking outside of Mandela’s former home, Ngwane recalls when the ANC leader was first captured, leading to a 27-year imprisonment before
his release in 1990. Ngwane was active in the struggle against apartheid that culminated in Mandela’s 1994 election and today remains a leading South African voice for human rights.

Frida Kahlo by Lola Álvarez Bravo, 1944


Points of support
For my whole figure there is only one; I want two.
To provide me two they had to cut off one.
The one I don't have is the one I need to have
in order to walk. The other is already dead!
I have more than enough wings.
So cut them.
I'll fly away!
