The super tiny creatures have been hand sculpted by Mijbil Teko. “Every figurine is hand sculpted, baked and painted with several layers of acrylics, to achieve perfect coverage and smoothness - and then carefully checked to ensure its cuteness before glazing it. Transparent varnish is applied for maximum shine and durability.” Find them in her Etsy shop.

This Holocaust survivor has a powerful message for Sean Spicer

Holocaust survivor Roman Kent is speaking out after White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s now-infamous remarks on Tuesday. 

Spicer suggested at a press briefing that Syrian President Bashar Assad committed acts worse than Adolf Hitler because even Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons against his own people.

Kent, who was born in Poland in the 1920s and arrived in the United States in 1946 after spending the war in the Auschwitz, Mertzbachtal, Dornau and Flossenburg concentration camps, spoke to Mic in an exclusive interview in his office in New York City.

“He said, ‘Anybody can make a mistake,’” Kent said of Spicer’s apology in an emotional interview. “I agree with that. Anybody can make a mistake. But that’s not a mistake.

“Following the literary and film success of “Hidden Figures,” author Margot Lee Shetterly will turn her attention to two little-known but prominent Black families in Baltimore. Viking Books announced today that it has acquired the rights to Shetterly’s next two books.

The first will focus on the mid 20th-century achievements of the Murphys, a publishing family, and the entrepreneurial Adams family. As described by PBS, formerly enslaved patriarch John Henry Murphy founded the The Afro-American newspaper and turned it, with his children, into one of the country’s most widely-read Black titles.

The paper tackled Jim Crow, the lack of Black representation in Baltimore government and other racial justice issues throughout its existence. The Murphys used this influence to successfully advocate local change, including desegregating the University of Maryland‘s law school.”
