For MedievalPOC, a blogger here on tumblr who receives endless hate and threats for exposing people to alternate historical narratives and for discussing systemic racism, criticizing academic gatekeeping and the disenfranchisement of American indigenous people to name a few.
I’ve learned so much from this person both in terms of facts and critical thinking skills that I wanted to give something back more tangible than a donation (although this person does all this amazing work for zero money [and possibly endangers their own personal safety as well as credibility in their chosen field] in their free time, so if you check out the blog and appreciate what you learn I’d encourage you to make a donation yourself)
Thank you so much for your dedication, passion, and time, MedievalPOC, you’re making a difference and though your progress will be hampered every step of the way by those benefiting from the status quo, you will also be supported and celebrated and I hope that gives you strength.
