Jojo Rabbit. Film Review: Green. Riley. Jackson.

Jojo Rabbit is a 2019 comedy-drama film written and directed by Taika Waititi, adapted from Christine Leunens's 2008 book Caging Skies. Roman Griffin Davis portrays the title character, Johannes "Jojo" Betzler, a ten-year-old Hitler Youth member who finds out that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. He must then question his beliefs while dealing with the intervention of his imaginary friend (Waititi), a fanciful version of Adolf Hitler with a comedic stance on the politics of the war. The film also stars Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant and Alfie Allen.

The Windrush Generation. A story by Kandace Chimbiri (Read in-part by Oliver Green)

The Windrush Generation includes anyone who immigrated to Britain from the Caribbean between 1948-1973. After WWII, large parts of Britain were in desperate need of rebuilding, so the UK actively invited immigration from Commonwealth nations.

 

https://windrushfoundation.com

Kandace Chimbiri is the author of black history books for children; Secrets of the Afro Comb,6,000 Years of Art and Culture, The Story of Early Ancient Egypt, Step Back in Time to Ancient Kush and The Story of the Windrush, a tribute to the Windrush Generation pioneers. Kandace was born in London, England in 1968 to parents from Barbados.

 

Motivated by a desire to help improve both children's literacy as well as their knowledge of history, Kandace founded her small publishing house Golden Destiny Ltd in 2009. Golden Destiny specialises in non-fiction titles for children, in particular Black history before mass enslavement.

 

She has worked with the V&A on Contemporary Kushite Kings and Queens (part of the Staying Power project in 2011), the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge on the Origins of the Afro Comb (2013) and with the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology on the Fusion of Worlds (2014).

 

She has given talks for adults and for children on African history as well as tours on African Artefacts in the British Museum, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and the V&A.

 

Her talks and workshops for adults include:

• Ancient Warrior Queens of the Sudan (for Black History Walks)

• Nefertiti: a Black icon?

• African Artefacts in European Museums

• Female Rulers of the Ancient Nile Valley

 

Her talks, museum trails and workshops for children include Great Lives of Ancient Africa (museum mystery hunt), 6,000 years of African combs, Why doesn’t everyone have African hair? and Kushite crowns. She has also delivered Black history sessions for children at the Barbados Museum (2012).

 

She appeared in the documentary, Nubian Spirit: The African Legacy of the Ancient Nile Valley.

Stalin. Part 2 (The older)

This is part 2 of a 2 part episode. 

Stalin’s life was incredible!! good, bad and at many times ugly. 

From a poor kid to the leader of the USSR. 

During the quarter of a century preceding his death, the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin probably exercised greater political power than any other figure in history. Stalin industrialised the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, forcibly collectivised its agriculture, consolidated his position by intensive police terror, helped to defeat Germany in 1941–45, and extended Soviet controls to include a belt of eastern European states.

Macabre bones. 

Spooky tales from his Brain. To yours. 

 

Welcome to this side project from the creator of the history emporium & pals podcast. 

 

Original short story’s for young adults: in fact any adult that likes an easy eerie read.

Here at the History Emporium & Pals we believe in equality. 

It is against the law to discriminate against someone because of: 

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

The shocking murder of Sarah Everard has highlighted an injustice that we know is faced by many women across the world: 

 

Still paid less and often not valued in our society or dismissed by the out of touch government and systems we have in place in Britain. 

You can get longer in prison for defacing a statue than if you assault a woman. 

At the history emporium we stand in solidarity of those who gathered at the vigil in south London in memory of Sarah. We also support the right to protest. 

Most of all we send our love to the family and friends of Sarah. She was just walking home.

 

We also continue to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter campaign.

The Essex whaling disaster. The real life Moby Dick tale.

The Essex whaling disaster. The real life Moby Dick tale. 

Today’s lesson from our history teacher Patrick.

The inspiration for Moby Dick:

Essex was an American whaler from Nantucket, Massachusetts, which was launched in 1799. In 1820, while at sea in the southern Pacific Ocean under the command of Captain George Pollard Jr., she was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale.
