“I am not a descendant of slaves, I descend from human beings who were enslaved.” Condemnation of act of racism in Pereira, Colombia where 2 women yelled to an Afro Colombian “slave, thats why you have to treat blacks like slaves.” #Via @raiz_negra_

Frente al acto racista que recibió una mujer afrocolombiana mientras transitaba por una de las calles de Pereira, en la cual dos mujeres le gritaron “esclava, es que a los negros hay que tratarlos como esclavos” queremos decir que reprochamos este tipo de acto de discriminación y racismo en la cual estando en una país tan diverso como lo es Colombia aun hayan mentes estigmatizadas por el color de piel.

Grateful to have had a stage from which to discuss some of the research related to 1) teachers of color leaving the field and 2) students of color being mistreated daily. To do so sandwiched in between two poems represents a dream come true, in many ways. Thanks for inviting me, trusting me, and loving me. You know who you are (and there are many). #evenwhenthesunburns #3amblack #poetry #3amblackpoetry #womensmarch2018 #wmwri18 #rezarites #ambitiousblackfeminist #educolor #teachingisthenewblack
