#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

Sunday story time: Ishan was the tour bus driver for the recent trip i took into the Sahara desert. everyday he's driving tourists in a packed, sporadically air conditioned bus. he drives a minimum of 8 hours a day everyday through winding mountains, as tourists bounce assumptions of his country off one another. when we got to the desert he walked the hour-long path (after driving all day) and met us shortly after we dismounted our camels. he not only made a mockery of me as he coasted over the deep sand dunes that took my ankles prisoner, but his disposition made me wonder how he does it all so jovially. the next morning he was already in the bus ready to go after we made the camel ride back to town. the final day, he drove 12 straight hours back to marrakesh, only to look forward to driving a new tour group into the desert the next day.  i'm still floored by his humility, patience, hustle and diligence, because he performs this job with grace even when passengers demanded air or wanted to play their top 40 Katy Perry nonsense instead of his music. trying to find it in my spirit to be more like Ishan this week and in the long haul. ****oh and pls ignore my head wrap, Ishan had insisted he tie this beautiful Berber scarf the traditional way for this pic. #komadicxmaroc #komadicblog #thehumbletravelmovement #morocco #goals

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 👇🏾
