For those of you who’ve asked how you can support Medievalpoc:
 Become a Medievalpoc Patron!
Medievalpoc is a collection of art, history, and academic resources accessible to anyone. Ph.D. candidates, history educators, fantasy authors, fans of historical media and cultural studies, as well as those who are just interested in learning something different have found new and exciting information at Medievalpoc. These artworks and documentation are readily available on multiple social media platforms, including Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Medievalpoc.org. The goal of Medievalpoc is not to hoard information, but to share it as widely as possible and incite discussion in social as well as activist and educational communities.
Patronage will provide the opportunity to not only bring Medievalpoc to a wider audience online, but the ability to travel for appearances at academic and literary conventions, speak at functions, and facilitate activist work in face-to-face environments. Patronage means more access to databases, art collections, and academic resources for the creation of Medievalpoc. In addition, your patronage can pave the way for exciting new projects across various media, like print, film, and interactive online content—projects Patrons can see in the making.I look forward to forging a new era of Patron and Creator with my readers in my goal of bringing Art and History to life in a new way-a History in which we can see ourselves.

I became a Medievalpoc Patron and wanted to signal boost this.
When people complain about “revisionist history” what they don’t tell you is that the “default history” so many were taught in school—the one that leaves out PoC, the one that leaves out women, the one that leaves out the ways in which indigenous people fought back, adapted, co-opted and SURVIVED—is the true revisionist history.
For me a project like medievalpoc and all the people writing and educating about the full panoply of history is part of RESTORATIVE HISTORY. We have always been here.

Thank you, and can I just say I adore the phrase “restorative history”. Revising history is a necessary process of writing it, but I think people have made so many negative and even pejorative associations with the term, the meaning has changed.

I wrote an article for Salon

and pushed a hashtag.

And I found that like me there were many people who had stories to tell and desires to expand the discussion of millennials beyond the snarky, mocking and often blindingly white confines of the discussion.

I also found that while…
