Eclectic Goodness 10.20.08

Linking you up to:

io9 wants Common to be the Green Lantern. According to them, Common "already has an affinity for science fiction." Yes sur--anyone ever hear of a little album called Electric Circus? (Hate if you want to, that album was fire)

Blackademics has an interview with poet, anthropologist and essayist Dr. Ifi Amadiume. Discuss centers around her book, Daughters of the Goddess, Daughters of Imperialism, women's movements in Ghana, and the dynamic relationship between African Americans (particularly young, black activists) and Africa.

Lex, a sister in the academic struggle, is shouting to the world that all our love matters--and posting transformative reading that proves it.

Jack and Jill Politics has the goods on the election. Colin Powell endorsing Obama, the $150,000 million raised in the month of September, and two new endorsements that prove that Republicans switching to the Obama camp is not just a rally gimmick. reports back from BomPlenazo 2008 at Hostos Center for the Arts and Culture (Bronx, NY). Bomba!

Eric Foner writes on the first black U.S. Congressman...and their impact. I'd like to say he was inspired by Obama, but the man has been doing Reconstruction since I was six years old. Longer. Go Foner.
