The name of the Alhambra comes from the Arabic word 'al-hamra', which means 'the red one'. “How lazily the sun goes down in Granada, it hides beneath the water, it conceals in the Alhambra!”
Ernest Hemingway.

@Regrann from @kmercial - “We are proud of being Spanish and Moroccan,” said Hassan Bargach, whose family originates from the Spanish town of Hornachos and is among a group that has held onto some Iberian customs despite living in Morocco for centuries. 🇪🇸🇲🇦 They are descendants of Moriscos, Muslims who were expelled from Spain in 1609 and are scattered across the Mediterranean Sea — cultural cousins of Sephardim, Jews of Spanish descent.

Now, with Spain’s initiative to offer Sephardic Jews a path to citizenship, some Morisco descendants have called on Madrid for similar treatment: if not the same rights, then at least recognition of their heritage. “We think we deserve some respect for the suffering Moriscos experienced,” said Najib Loubaris, president of the Association for Andalusian Remembrance.

Like Sephardic Jews, Muslims were an integral part of Spain’s society before being painfully uprooted by Christian rulers. Many were forced to convert to Christianity and later prohibited from taking their possessions. A large number perished at sea.

You better act the part you want to become: this is the only way to actually become it! Create an entity and give her a name, a personality, even a style of dress. Actors become the roles they play, and those "roles" become REAL in your heart and mind, don't they? You must do the same process for yourself. Play the role until you "become" the character of your intent. Forget "authenticity"! Being authentic is a matter of habit and repetition, not some sort of "natural" inclination. You are the "you" that you are because of repetition that built your reputation: nothing more...
You want to be a Queen? Then ACT like it!

John and Harriet Tubman 1844 (2015)
by Kerry James Marshall (American)

With his large-scale, exuberant paintings, artist Kerry James Marshall is on a mission: to make the presence of black people and black culture in the art world "indispensable" and "undeniable." Now 61, Marshall was a young artist when he decided to paint exclusively black figures. "One of the reasons I paint black people is because I am a black person ..." he says. "There are fewer representations of black figures in the historical record ..." Marshall was born in Birmingham, Ala., in 1955, just before the Montgomery Bus Boycott began. He grew up in South Central, Los Angeles, and was living in the Watts neighborhood in 1965, when riots broke out in protest of police brutality. "The hope was always to make sure these works found their way into museums so they could exist alongside everything else that people go into museums to look at," Marshall says.

And it's worked — a 35-year retrospective of his work has appeared at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art, and now, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

@Regrann from @greatsealrepublic - As the distractions arise, seeing images of the Klu Klux Klan #kkk with the displays of organized domestic terrorism in the #news lately. The robes isn't the KKK's creation. The #kkk hijacked and copied off the Negro Brotherhood of Seville in Spain. #bitin #moorsinspain These were Moors that were forced to convert to Christianity during the Inquisition. They were then called Moriscos or little #Moors. I'm pretty sure this robe might even have even more ancient Aboriginal priesthood origins in Egypt. According to EA Wallis Budge the MAURS, were the high priests of Anu. Many of these modern European groups have taken our ancient symbols (i.e. Swastika) and have used them to impose fear against our ancestors and us today. #eyeswideopen #weseeyou KKK #itaintworkingnomore #wetheoriginals #whyyoumad #stopbiting #culturalappropriation #thisisours #nowhitenationalists #europeansaintwhite #nokkk #muurs #maurs #heritage #moslem #sufi #iamnotblackiamamoor #africanamericansaintafricans - #regrann

Black bean burger with Salsa BBQ sauce and Caramelized Onions along with French Potato Fries. It was delicious. It cost a pretty penny in the central district of Madrid but I'm satisfied. #bacoaburgermadrid #foodie #vacationmode #moorsinspain

Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba is a must see in Andulusia. When the Christians finally defeated the Moors they turned potions of the Mosque into a Cathedral. #moorsinspain #cordoba #moorishart #beautiful #classic #vacationmode #moors
