Over at Brilliance Remastered, Alexis Pauline Gumbs is accepting participants for the Summer 2013 Community is Not a Luxury cohort (pssst: she accepts graduate students!):
This intermediate stage of the coaching curriculum trains you to implement and build a community of accountability outside of the limits of your university setting. Community accountability is what distinguishes meaningful intellectual labor from elitist word games. This coaching module is for scholars who are committed to making a difference in the lives of the communities that inspire them and also activates community as a superpower to sustain your wholeness and to support and celebrate you in your degree process….
Today is the LAST day for a phone consultation so check in now.
Are you running a summer camp, freedom school, or consciousness-raising workshop? Post the details below….

io9 reports on graphic designer Jaz Parkinson’s Color Signatures, a project graphing the visual content of classic novels:
These are my colour signatures, an ongoing collection which are basically graphs of all the visual content in the books. For example when it might say ‘yellow brick road,’ ‘yellow’ gets a tally, or when for example in The Road it says ‘dark ash covered everything’ (not an actual quote), that image evokes dark grey instantly in the mind, so dark grey gets a tally. They are then ordered into a spectrum and drawn up, so the result is a surprise to me until it is done. I was shocked at The Road as well! A lot of the colour is fire, and when they finally find some food the book describes ‘juicy glistening peaches,’ which is so visual after pages and pages of grey.
Above is one of my favorites, Alice in Wonderland. For the rest, click here. Jaz has a queue of books ahead of her and takes requests.
