Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

Young Ghanaian Photographers Converge in Cape Coast for the First Ever #INSTAMEETCAPECOAST Event.

Instameet is a worldwide movement where photographers and people with a passion for photography meet and go for a photowalk in a specified city, take pictures and upload them on Instagram. It is identified by the hashtag #instameet + the name of the city. Enter #InstameetCapeCoast!  
On this particular weekend, a couple of friends who are photography inclined happened to be in Cape Coast, we met and decided to organize the maiden #InstameetCapeCoast on Sunday.
Being lovers of photography, we organized it to raise awareness and to stimulate creativity in Ghanaian youth, with regards to photography, beyond selfies culture. It was also a subtle tourism campaign for Cape Coast and Ghana at large since we were showcasing the city artistically.
#Instameetcapecoast was a very great experience for everybody who showed up since this was the very first Instameet for most of them and the fact that we saw a whale in the Atlantic Ocean just after we took our jumping group photo was just incredible. How cooler can it be?
