    The Women Who Rode Miles on Horseback to Deliver Library Books

    Librarians are amazing.

    They were known as the “book women.” They would saddle up, usually at dawn, to pick their way along snowy hillsides and through muddy creeks with a simple goal: to deliver reading material to Kentucky’s isolated mountain communities.

    @gutenberg_org In Africa it's being done by camels.

    The Camel Mobile Library Service lends more than 7,000 books to nomads in Kenya's impoverished North East Province, often because camels are the only means of crossing the inhospitable terrain. Many of the books are supplied by Book Aid International.

    "Colonial statues in post-colonial Africa: a multidimentional heritage" by Sophia Labadi (2023).

    "Is history being destroyed when colonial statues are removed from public space? This paper has explained that history is often being made when they are removed. Indeed, the hidden motivations for the construction and/or upkeep of these statues can then be revealed, along with their entangled colonial or racist legacies. Besides, their removals can aid in rectifying history, exposing in some cases the Eurocentrism of public spaces, and European epistemic domination. Such removal makes space for the erection of memorials for local heroes, who might have played more significant roles than colonial or racist figures".

    Who Fears Death by Nedi Okorafor is today's Audible Daily Deal.

    This was my first introduction to Okorafor's African Futurism and is a very good starting point.

    I've enjoyed many of her other Novels, but have trouble with her YA, I didn't connect with Binti or Akata Witch.

    Earlier this year I wrote a non-fiction article about my thought processes in worldbuilding. I have been obsessed with a future where central governments are no more, and everything is decentralised like the fediverse. The article is part of an anthology on Afro centered futurisms, and here is a Publishers Weekly announcement of the book. Description in the alt text.

    I want to learn more about modern Africa to combat any biases I may have picked up from public schooling in the US -- and just because I realized I don't know much about African countries and people. Does anyone have favorites as far as historical events, culture, religion/spirituality, etc.? @histodons

    "Less appreciated, however, are the deep historical roots of this convergence process, and in particular of the spread of modern industry to the global periphery. This book fills this gap by providing a systematic, comparative, historical account of the spread of modern manufacturing beyond its traditional heartland, to Southern and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America, or what we call the poor periphery."
