Join the party for our sister, Madame Vice President Kamala Harris

We did it! Kamala Devi Harris is our vice president as of Wednesday. We broke down walls and shattered not one, or two, but three ceilings. No matter what lies ahead, we, and she, made history. I say we, because without the massive, and fiercely dedicated efforts of so many of us, especially Black women, who have waited for what seems like an eternity for this change to come, it wouldn’t have happened at all. In spite of ugly forces lined up against us, our victory can never be erased.  In my heart, I see her mom, Shyamala Gopalan, smiling, seated at a roundtable with Shirley Chisholm, Fannie Lou Hamer, Barbara Jordan, and Ida B. Wells. The founding sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority are circled behind them. I want to give a special shout out to members of the K-Hive, and of the DK-Hive here at Daily Kos—Kamala’s fierce defenders, who were with her from the beginning of her journey, have had her back from day one, and will continue to do so. So this #BlackMusicSunday, we’re having a party for Kamala, and for us all. Join the celebration!

Trimmed in Gold, Ceramic Vessels by Artist Yurim Gough Challenge Notions of Gender

Through nine ceramic bowls, Yurim Gough untangles the complex narratives surrounding performance, appearance, and gender fluidity. Her identity-centric pieces—which are infused with layers of pencil renderings, thread, and other materials that can require nearly a dozen rounds of firing at multiple temperatures to complete—depict figures outfitted with ostentatious costumes and elaborately painted faces. Drawing on aspects of queer culture, Gough’s vessels are disruptive and revisionary, simultaneously exposing the dated and constructed nature of traditional gender categories while reveling in the history of those who’ve subverted norms.
