Jamel Shabazz: Street Photographer
As a teenage photographer in early 80s East Flatbush, Brooklyn, Jamel Shabazz set out to document the then nascent movement of hip-hop. Through the iconic style of his MCs, neighborhood kids and gang members, the unequivocal attitude of New York’s youth was recognized as the calling card of the city’s creative renaissance. Published in 2001, Shabazz’ first book Back In The Days was celebrated as an exhilarating snapshot of the times, and his visual flair has been brought to life in a new documentary by the legendary hip-hop historian and director, Charlie Ahearn. “On the cover of Jamel’s book were two young men on 42nd Street. They were captured posing in such strong form as a kind of respectful bulwark against all the chaos that you see around them on ‘The Deuce,’” explains Ahearn, the notable filmmaker also responsible for the classic old-school movie, Wild Style. “I immediately knew that here was an original artist for our time.”

i like how california has the only flag to openly acknowledge the period of time when it was an independent republic, a period of time which lasted less than a month and which saw no actual sovereign actions from the proclaimed government
meanwhile shitty old Texas is over here doing what? trying to figure out how to spell republic? come on, Texas, show that shit off. and Vermont. what, green mountain boys flag too good for a state flag? I disagree. It’s too good to not be a state flag. Fix your shit, Vermont.
