If you like period movies/tv shows, great acting, mystery, beautiful people and great entertainment I HIGHLY recommend Spain’s Gran Hotel. The show is available with English subs and I seriously believe all of tumblr needs to watch. It has mystery, romance, great acting, great cast, gorgeous people, gorgeous period costumes. In fact, all the shit tumblr seems to love. Here’s some info on the show itself:

The story begins in 1905, with the mysterious disappearance and presumed death of Cristina Olmedo (Paula Prendes), maid in the Gran Hotel. Six months later, her brother Julio (Yon Gonzalez) arrives to investigate said disappearance and gets a job in the hotel, becoming friends with Andres (Llorenç Gonzalez), the son of staff manager Ángela (Concha Velasco), as well as with Alicia (Amaia Salamanca), the daughter of the Gran Hotel’s family owner, the Alarcón. Julio and Alicia fall in love, living a passionate romance that is though impossible for their difference of class, while they investigate the network of deaths, lies and secrets kept between the Gran Hotel’s walls.

Watch the show!

Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.

Did Igbohistory quote the person who actually wrote this? As I read this, I had the feeling that I’d read the exact words before and not from Igbohistory. In fact I believe that I shared a link to the original essay on my tumblr years ago but I can’t find it now, I will sha…

I was taught this in my African History class, and since then i stopped referring to my people (Yoruba) and other ethic groups of Africa and the world as tribes. This large groups of people are nations with strong rich history and deserve to be respected as such. 

i do hope that igbohistory doesn’t claim that this is their own work, and they simply forgot to cite where the information comes from. 

I updated! I made a mistake pls, it was very similar to another essay I’d read but not the same.

I BEEN saying this, YES.

'Tribe' is a white anthropological word meant to diminish.
