Thank you @chihumanities for having our young women attend tonight’s empowering talk full of female storytellers and academics. We learned so much and we appreciate you for providing women like them and us a platform and opportunity to share and learn. - Tonight, our girls not only sat in the audience but got the chance to go back stage and speak to “Ida B Wells’ legacy” (Nikole Hannah-Jones of the @nytmag, Wells’ granddaughter Michelle Duster, @uchicago assistant professor and writer @eve.ewing, and @wbezchicago South Side bureau reporter Natalie Moore). We are continuously thankful for the connection opportunities Chicago has to offer our youth and voices that come to and from this dynamic city. Giving our kids access is EVERYTHING. #nikolehannahjones#nataliemoore#michelleduster#evewing#chicago#storytellers#womeninmedia#womenineducation#panel#strongwomen#writers#girlpower#chicagohumanities#youth @global_girl_media @afterschoolmatters @womens_voices_now @tobieloomis

I saw #nikolehannahjones speak on school segregation tonight and I’m left thinking about what she said about values and preaching not to the choir, but preaching to people who have the right values but take the wrong action. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You can attend all the talks, read all the articles, listen to all the podcasts, post all the quotes, feel all the feelings... but if you don’t DO... if you don’t DO it’s because you don’t have to. Your life will continue on as it always does. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Young people in our schools don’t get a choice. They have to attend school and they KNOW what we, the adults, value in them by what they see around them in those schools. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m talking last month, I was in one school of all black and brown kids that had no classroom books, where kids were yelled at constantly by everyone around them, where they all lost recess for NOTHING. The people around them were measuring the distance between each of them in line to make sure it was uniform. Then, I traveled 5 miles, 5 effing miles, to another school of mostly white kids where there were tons of books, Chromebooks, and reading beanbags in a beautiful reading corner. Where kids the same age could freely go to the bathroom when they needed to. That’s school segregation right here and right now in Michigan, which Nikole says is a state with some of the most segregated schools in the country. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“Children understand how little we value their education by the schools we build for them.” -Nikole Hannah-Jones ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing.⁣⁣

Recently, Isaac told me after getting off the bus, “Mumma, something happened at school today,” and I immediately braced myself for whatever racist comment had been spoken by another child to mine. Fortunately, it was an incident unrelated to race, but please don’t miss the message: at 8 years old, we’ve dealt with enough racist remarks made to him by other children that I assumed this to be the most plausible cause of my son’s pain.

I was considering this tonight at a talk given by journalist, Nikole Hannah-Jones. She started her speech by thanking us for coming, and then by musing that though it may seem she was preaching to the choir, what she really believed to be true was that she was speaking to people who “have the right values and take the wrong actions”. She spoke extensively about racial segregation in schools, and our propensity to listen, devoid of subsequent action. Hannah-Jones finished with: “You care. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?”

I’ve grown very weary of the expressions of emotion that ring empty without accompanying effort to enact change. There are so many ways to step into the fray; start by asking where and how you can contribute in your community. The comments, likes, and reposts make me feel supported and seen, but if I was only looking for reassurance for my own loved ones, I would spend less time word smithing posts, and more time with the family I share through these postings. Use the revelations of others to drive you to help the greater whole. Push further. You’re uniquely created to serve someone, somehow, somewhere beyond the comfort of your own inner circle.

You care.
Now, what are you going to do?

A Florida police station in the middle of the night.
Two parents searching for answers.
Kerry Washington (“Scandal”, Race) returns to the Broadway stage alongside Steven Pasquale (“American Crime Story,” Junk), Eugene Lee (Gem of the Ocean), and Jeremy Jordan (“Supergirl,” Newsies), in the riveting new play, AMERICAN SON.
Marking the Broadway debut of playwright Christopher Demos-Brown and directed by Tony Award® winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences), AMERICAN SON is a gripping tale about who we are as a nation, and how we deal with family relationships, love, loss, and identity.

Nikole Hannah-Jones, investigative reporter at The New York Times, moderates an important conversation with some of theater’s most timely and directional voices — Kerry Washington, an award-winning actor and producer; Kenny Leon, a Tony Award-winning Broadway and film director; Steven Pasquale, an acclaimed stage and screen actor; and playwright Christopher Demos-Brown. Washington and Pasquale star in “American Son,” a gripping tale set in a Florida police station, chronicling two parents looking for their missing teenage son. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to bear witness to a conversation about who we are as a nation and how we deal with family relationships, love, loss and identity.

Feeling inspired and grateful for thoughtful conversation and perspectives on Black journalism and leadership in media spaces as we celebrate the birthday of anti-lynching activist, feminist, pre-civil rights era civil rights leader, human rights warrior, journalist, foremother #IdaBWells! #NikoleHannahJones #AkibaSolomon #JamilahLemieux. 🖤
This event was a fundraiser to support the creation of a monument to be located in Bronzeville, the Chicago neighborhood where she once lived, worked and raised her family, to honor her life, legacy and work. The effort is sooooo close to their goal. Please join me in wishing Ida B. Wells a happy birthday by making a donation at - IdaBWellsMonument.org 🖤

My comic about school inequity in the time of Trump and DeVos is finally up at @the_nib! I was just finishing up the rough panel sketches for this when I broke my drawing wrist, and I’m so excited that it is now finished and out in the world. This is a subject that is very important to me personally and professionally and I welcome any and all feedback, particularly from my educator friends. Special thanks to @daniselaresa for sharing her story with me and to my very understanding editor @elerimai and to (personal hero) Nikole Hannah Jones for the work she does. Link in bio!!

ontem tive uma experiência sensacional pra minha vida pessoal e profissional.
pude conhecer duas jornalistas americanas de extrema representatividade e importância para as "minorias". a da esquerda, maravilhosa e espelho de mulher pra mim #NikoleHannahJones escreve e trabalha para o The New York Times, pokas! a autenticidade e espontaneidade dessa mulher fez com que eu tivesse mais certeza que é exatamente isso que eu quero pra mim. me identifiquei desde a vestimenta até quando questionada o que seria jornalismo e ela responde "justiça e verdade". a segunda e muito maravilhosa é a #KiratianaFreelon, também americana mas reside e trabalha no RJ. a mulher é jornalista, empreendedora, escritora... um espelho de mulher. que todos possamos ter a fome de informações que você tem. mesmo com os idiomas e culturas opostas, senti tanta conectividade, amor pelo o que faz. poder conhece-las e vivenciar praticamente um dia com ambas dentro do bairro que me viu crescer, me criou, me mostrou e mostra todas as vertentes em morar na periferia à 22 anos, me acolheu e daqui eu serei a eterna aluna quando isso jamais seria possível anos atrás e hoje vivo meu sonho dentro do Jardim Ângela, é do caralho!
só posso sentir a gratidão infinita pelo acolhimento, aprendizado e vivência... de fato, nós precisamos eternamente das pessoas, pessoas certas. jamais esquecerei a experiência e espero ter esse terço de representatividade dentro do meu pico para as pessoas que passam pelas coisas que eu passei.
nem tudo de fato são flores aqui no Ângela, mas existe vida inteligente aqui, existem vidas!! existe cultura, existe história, existe felicidade ao saber que podemos viver a vida realmente aqui. graças aos meus professores e queridos Ronaldo e Thais - também dois sensacionais jornalistas - muito por aqui clareou e irá clarear. só gratidão! que todos possamos viver de fato nossas origens sem esquecermos que podemos viver felizes e realizando sonhos internos e externos dentro de casa. hoje eu tenho o privilégio de trabalhar e estudar no Ângela.
esse é o meu lar, o meu lugar.
sempre.
obrigada aos meus dois melhores amigos @nclpzc, @iambradshaw1 e mãe. devo isso à vcs.
obrigada Jah!
