People have given Trevor Noah a hard time ever since he took over The Daily Show, but he totally scored a huge win on last night’s show with Tomi Lahren from The Blaze. While she jabbered on at top speed and bitched about BLM and Colin Kaepernick, Trevor remained calm, collected, poised, and allowed her to hoist herself by her own ignorant petard. As I’ve seen some people point out on Twitter, I don’t think she may fully realize that Trevor is a biracial man from South Africa who had to be zealously protected by his mother because his birth actually violated apartheid laws. He could have easily been killed as a child due to his identity as biracial.

If you haven’t seen the full interview, I urge you to seek it out, it’s remarkable. 

ARTNOIR + Black Lives Matter: Black Futures Month || ANSWER TIME on February 14th, 10am (PST) || 1pm (EST)

ARTNOIR is excited to be collaborating with Black Lives Matter on their Black Futures Month project during Black History Month. This project is designed to inspire people during this challenging social & political climate through art and the written word to dream about tomorrow today. 

Each day in February, Black Lives Matter will release an original piece of art and an accompanying written piece to reclaim Black History Month and demonstrate the importance of using art as both an inspiration and an organizing tool. Artists from around the world have been commissioned to use their genius to promulgate the conversation about systemic racism and violence against Black people.

Today we are thrilled to co-host an interactive Q&A with visual artist Delano Dunn, digital all-rounder Babusi Nyoni and organizer/writer Miski Noor for a candid and spirited conversation via Tumblr’s Answer Time series. 

Our conversation explores how visual art and writing can serve as a platform to discuss pressing issues that impact Black communities throughout the diaspora from education to immigration.

Send us your questions and join the conversation live on  February 14th, 10am (PST) || 1pm (EST) on our Tumblr site.
