As #TyreNichols is laid to rest today, consider these words from @RaceForward pres @iamglennharris, “The frequency of death by police for Black/Brown people hurts more deeply each time. It is an exponential pain. But our pain must move us forward for our families & communities.”
On this day in 1960, four black college students staged a sit-in at a whites-only lunch counter at Woolworth's in Greensboro, NC.
They sparked a national movement across the country. Instructions were simple: sit quietly and wait to be served. #BlackHistoryMonth
Tyre Nichols' murder shows us once again the inequities of policing and police accountability for people of color. While @RaceForward has much more to say on this, tonight we mourn and stand in solidarity with Tyre Nichols' family and friends.
K-12 public school art teachers taught me concrete creative skills, encouraged my making practice & provided a space to experiment and play. I am so grateful for them!

“The fueling of xenophobic, transphobic and antisemitic beliefs within the Black community doesn’t appear in a vacuum. It is the direct result of the increasing lack of representational access to journalism.” —Eric K. Ward, @RaceForward#journalism#mediahttps://t.co/yiqKi0MlVX
