Barber Shops and Braiding Studios- Insitute of Texan Cultures- The Will to Adorn

Students visited Faided Image Barbershop, Kady's African Braiding and Weaving, and Talk A Da Town Barbershop to better understand  the roles that barber shops and salons have in the African American community in San Antonio.

The Will to Adorn: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity is a collaborative initiative with Smithsonian Affiliations, the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, and the Smithsonian Learning Lab.

Through the internship, students explored expression in the African American community in San Antonio by visiting barber shops, and an African American braiding salon.

Bacon's Rebellion

This series of images and documents show how the events of Bacon’s Rebellion are like that of the American Revolution. Like the American Revolution, Bacon’s Rebellion was caused by grievances that colonists had with the colonial government, spurred various tales about events that supposedly happened during the conflicts, and changed the way that Virginians thought about the country around them. These connections can be found through documents containing information about Bacon’s Rebellion, paintings that present images of people and romanticized tales about the events of the conflict, and inside a place known as Bacon’s Castle, a place that is still standing today.

The two conflicts had a similar structure from each other. Both rebellions started as a series of complaints that escalated into a conflict as the people protesting became more extreme. The American Revolution and Bacon’s Rebellion also had lasting impacts on the country (or colonies) because Virginia obtained a new government due to their revised charter after the rebellion and then obtained an entirely new constitution after the Revolution. The two events also contained their sets of war heroes on both sides as well as fictional tales that are set during the events of the previously mentioned conflicts.

Back from the Brink: Black-Footed Ferrets

The westward expansion of the United States in the 19th century added millions of acres to our territory.  Thomas Jefferson stated "The fertility of the country, its climate and extent, promise in due season important aids to our treasury, an ample provision for our posterity, and a wide-spread field for the blessings of freedom."  Today, Americans still heavily depend on many resources and industries in the west.

However, with triumph often comes elements of tragedy.  Learn more about the black-footed ferret's brush with extinction through videos, images, and news articles.

Babi Yar Massacre

The Babi Yar Massacre is one of the largest mass killings that happened during the Holocaust. In two days over 33,000 Jewish people died. Their dead bodies were thrown into the Babi Yar Ravine and buried. Throughout the rest of the Holocaust more people were executed and buried, causing the total number of deaths to be near 100,000.

Lesser known mass killings such as Babi Yar show how wide spread the events of the Holocaust were. The Anti-Semitic actions in places such as Kiev proves how common the hatred towards Jewish people had become, adding to the perpetuation of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust had many different tragedies that must never be forgotten. Through these pictures, people in modern day can better understand how horrible the events were. It is interesting to realize that many of the most horrible acts of the time took place away from concentration camps, in places like Babi Yar.

These images are a collection to show the atrocities that took place within the two days.

Aztecs and Coding

Here is a collection of coding games using Scratch interactive media using MakeyMakey , integrating Aztec games, culture and information.

In this collection, I am going to highlight Aztec games and culture to recreate  projects that I do in my my own design classroom with my students based on these historical artifacts.

This collection is hopefully an inspiration for young designers and artists to use designs inspired by the Aztec games and culture to make a Scratch game or remix with the examples I have posted in this collection.  This collection shows you a pathway to create coding and designs based on these  Aztec games and culture,  to create games similar in motif and structure to the originals. (This lesson is more focused on 9-18 year olds, but can be adapted for older students, as well as adults with some rewriting and restructuring, especially with coding aspect of the lesson.)

 You will be creating and studying these cultural artifacts to gain insight into how they were constructed, drawn, and fabricated. In order to gain perspective on these  cultures, the research your students use by viewing and constructing their own coded games/designs will give agency to their work, albeit through the eyes of these  people. The students will gain a new understanding and vision of these  cultural motifs and what they carry to the viewer.

Students will be creating and researching designs and motifs based on this culture. Once they have constructed and drawn an idea either through digital or non-digital means, they will be rendering their designs in Scratch or another coding app like Processing

The students will then use these coded games with MakeyMakey and a create a controller like these musical instruments/controllers my students created at Labz at my school Charter High School for Architecture and Design in Philadelphia.

Happy Coding!
