This is the book (or manual as I like to call it) that I produced as a part of my graduate exhibition two years ago, and is just a small part of a wider project and dissertation that explores women’s representation in punk scenes. I keep meaning to get it printed out and give a copy to those involved, but never have money, so I decided to just stick it up online. As with most college projects (well for me anyway) it got kind of rushed towards the end, so isn’t perfect. I’ve learned a lot more since then, and further developed many of the ideas. I’d love to go back and redo this book, but I like this version mostly because it reminds me of all the fun we had making it! Click the picture to read the full version online!

#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.
Hoping this project raises awareness about the injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism.
#DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.

“A friend of mine says that one defines a punk as opposed to one or another form of oppression. I’m tired of people’s generalizations and stereotypes about Muslim girls. Therefore, I am punk.” Tesnim Sayar, Denmark
