It’s been a year, y’all. Thanks for sticking through it with us. On this very last Afternoon Snack of 2017, we’re wishing all of you a safe holiday and a much better time in the new year. Let’s get to it!
We’re just literally figuratively withering away in jealousy of anyone who gets to go to this interactive Rose of Versailles exhibit.
Zora Neale Hurston is posthumously blessing us with the release of a new non-fiction book being released in 2018! This rediscovered work is an anthropological piece that tells the story of Cudjo Lewis, the last person known to survive the transatlantic slave trade. It’s called Barracoon, and we’ll be looking out for it in 2018.
This is one of the very few Rape Takes that we’ve ever wholeheartedly agreed with. Make them fucking leave.
Give yourself the gift of qpoc poetry.
So… I did it. I created a master list of queer poets of color. You can't edit it, but you can comment. So feel free to comment more poets or changes and I'll get to them asap. Thanks to everyone who contributed via questions. This is a collaboration. https://t.co/g0eygtNdto pic.twitter.com/w5GmntEIyi

A good article that calls into question the common presentation of domestic violence as a precursor to mass shootings, in the sense that domestic violence is presented as “smaller” or “less important”.
“There has been a renewed push to label gender violence as a warning or precursor to mass shootings,” Chief Elk explained to me. “I’m uncomfortable with violence against women being seen as a secondary problem or something we should only pay attention to because of the ‘more important’ or ‘bigger’ atrocities.”
Well, US lawmakers have passed Republican tax reform and a massive new study shows just how that will redistribute income from the poor to the rich — surprising nobody.
Here at POME we are VERY EXCITED for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the spooky new show coming to Netflix at some point in the future that is not nearly close enough to right now. And now that we’ve gotten a glimpse at the casting breakdown for the show, we gotta say that we are EVEN MORE STOKED.
Forever our princess!!!!
Do you like math and hate gerrymandering? Here is the perfect job for you!
Weeping forever about this story behind the music of The Muppet Christmas Carol.
That’s all for 2017! Stay warm, stay cool, stay your own sweet beautiful selves. We’ll see you on the other side.
