I was teaching at a Summer School this summer and one of my students told me he did not feel British, because he didn’t look British. He was black. That broke my heart a little. So I started questioning the kids on British history, and oh they fit in it and all the kids from ethnic minorities said they felt excluded from it. They felt their history only began with the end of the empire.
They were wrong.
I once thought the same thing.
I was also wrong.
It was thanks to medievalpoc that my eyes were opened. And my teaching, my research, my being, have changed so much because of that.
I will never forget the expression on their faces as I told my students a different history than what they were told in schools. I reinforced that they are British, they have always been British and they are part of British history.
And then I told them to start questioning what they are being told in schools, and to get on Tumblr and follow medievalpoc .
I hope they did.
I can’t even control my emotions right now. Honestly I am so humbled by this I am at a loss for words. Thank you.
This is the exact same thing that happened to me. Because of this blog, I feel connected to the cultural narrative for the first time since I was taught my people entered the world stage in chains.

THIS IS THE TRASH YOU ARE
TRASH FULL OF KITTENS
The latest addition to the Archie McPhee Library is a must-have for any Crazy Cat Lady. Entitled Fashion Cats [Buy on Amazon], it was compiled by Japanese photographer Takako Iwasa, “Japan’s #1 Cat Tailor,” who used his own adorable cats, Prin and Koutaro, as kitty supermodels to document fashion trends for fabulous felines.
"Prin and Koutaro are two cats who don’t get out of bed for less than the best catnip and 10,000 American dollars. They aren’t just cute, they are extraordinarily cute and know how to make Haute Cature look as good as it should. Here they don the latest Japanese Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter collections, featuring gorgeous, flowered paw bracelets, lace veils, tuxedo fronts, wool capes with matching caps, and much more.:
It’s 160 pages of nonstop kitty couture that’s guaranteed to brighten the gloomiest day.
