#localhistory: 55 years ago, Medgar Evers was assassinated by a white supremacist in the driveway of his Jackson home. His wife and kids were inside, and when they took him to a hospital, he was initially refused because of his race. He died an hour later. •••••
His kids had been trained in what to do if their home was bombed or shot at. The Evers built the home without a front door—they thought it would make them safer. As Mississippi’s first field secretary for NAACP, he organized youth sit-ins, he advocated for school integration, and rallied to get justice for Emmett Till. He seemed to be increasingly aware of the danger around him in the weeks leading up to his death. “You can kill a man, but you can’t kill an idea,” he once said. ••••••
i drive by this house on tough days sometimes and just sit and wonder how people like him, and his family,sacrificed  for people like me despite the unthinkable racist violence of the era.  it feels cheap to just say thank you. If you ever visit Jackson, the home is now a museum owned by Tougaloo College. #mississippi #jxn #history #blackhistory #medgarevers #jackson #komadicxthesip #komadicblog #keauxdotcom #naacp

Mississippi is super rural and beautiful. being in NYC and then Paris, i didn't realize how much i'd missed green spaces until i came back here. i associate nature with escapism, and i'm so happy i don't have to go far to find it. what do you love about the city/town you live in? leave me comment below 👇🏾#komadicxthesip #mississippi

these boys spent hours swimming in the sea that was teeming with jellyfish. they caught them with sticks, and sometimes their hands. then they buried the jellyfish in the sand to make their swim a little less electric ⚡️. i love seeing free black children outside just being themselves. they brought so much joy to my stay at Ngor beach. we can learn so much from just watching the way children interact with the world 🌊 #komadicxsenegal

flamenco dance is so special because there is no recording allowed until the very end of the performance 💃🏾. it's one of those rare times where everyone is present in a shared moment and not tweeting and posting to boast or prove anything. trying to recreate this feeling of connectedness (by disconnecting with my digital devices) more often in my day to day life. how will u disconnect today? drop a line in the comments below 👇🏾 #komadicxbarcelona #komadicblog

#Repost from our favs at the @joydaymovement! take care of your mental health, even when you're on the go! ・・・
We love @keaux's latest blogpost on traveling with #anxiety. She says on @ko.madic, "joy is disobedient--it doesn’t always come when we call it. you can make efforts to be happy, but if it were something that happened at the snap of our fingers, we’d all be living in bliss. anxiety, sadness, depression can strike no matter if you’re on a trip to the local farmer’s market or across the country. i've been working on not putting it to the side just because it's inconvenient." She is an inspiration to us always and please check out her latest blogpost for #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth on #KeauxDotCom.

i drink matcha everyday in Paris, and i've had matcha the last 3 days in London. but yesterday was the best.  i threw on my fav pair of heels 👠 , a new pair of jeans 👖,sat in the back room of a café and lingered over my matcha + read for three hours 🍵 📚. tbh it was the highlight of my vacation. i wasn't necessarily doing anything I couldn't do at home, but the act of not having to rush or be obliged to anything but sipping and reading felt like such an escape. in theory, i  could've been anywhere in the world but this happened in London & i thank the city for it. how will u slow down today? drop a line in the comments below 👇🏾

so inspired today! it's really all about travelling with a new perspective. check out this #repost from @bellarozzay in Harlem, NYC ✨💛 ・・・
walked to the neighborhood @starbucks today & took a moment to appreciate my surroundings, thanks to @ko.madic. When I travel I usually look forward to exploring hotels, eating at fancy restaurants + shopping but I never take a moment to be grateful that I was actually able to travel to a new place! or explore the place i'm in without doing something "touristy". i've come to believe that vacations aren't about how much money you spend, but how you spend your time. so here's to good weather, here's to being grateful, here's to being inspired, here's to Harlem. 💛

Story time: i went to the bank to deposit money today, but my local bank's bill deposit machine was broken. i was pissed because I was in a rush to get to the gym. so i google mapped a branch not too far away. near the end of my walk, i stumbled across this beautiful cathedral #plottwist

i gave myself permission to just completely stop for a few moments 💆🏾. St. Ambroise is less than a half mile from my apartment, I pass the bus stop named after it everyday, but I've never bothered to take a moment before I was forced to today. practiced what I preach through this blog today, and it def felt good. what will you do to slow down today? drop a line in the comments 👇🏾

the @ko.madic blog is live! (we live beybeh, yeah * @nicknpattiwhack_ voice *) to start, i’ve shared why “la vie ain’t always as belle as you think.” Paris is pretty, but my experience overall has been a series of lessons about carving out places of refuge—and not necessarily super glamorous ones. 
there’s also a q&a to let you know more about who i am and my views on seeing travel humbly, as it is something we do every.single.day. 
tell a friend to tell a friend (tag ‘em if you’re a real one.) and . drop me something below to let me know what you think so far 👇🏾 •

This blog post is a response to everyone who thinks it's easier for Americans abroad to watch our home in turmoil. Don't say you'll run away and join us, figure out what actions you can take to preserve your rights and communities. I poured this out to clear my mind, so that I could use that emptied headspace for greater good. ✨PS: that's me mid-interview, mid-cry after hearing the results of the election during the election night broadcast my masters program did in Paris #linkinbio #keauxdotcom #blackgirlswhoblog #blackswhoblog

Yesterday, I started blogging again. If you feel like me, between the heat and the incessant floods of black murders by police on social media, it’s been a long, hot summer. A lot of people I’ve spoken to feel heartbroken, and I think black America is coping with a collective heartbreak💔. We’re living life in the same "post-relationship dystopia" you experience when a relationship comes to an end.
