Children of the People

Contributors to The Children of the People at The CUNY Graduate Center, September 15, 2022.

I am proud to be included in a newly published anthology of writings by CUNY students and faculty on race and social justice.

The Children of the People: Writings by and about CUNY Students on Race and Social Justice, edited by Rose M. Kim, Grace M. Cho, and Robin McGinty, is now available from DIO Press.

My contribution is a reprint of my essay on Audre Lorde, “Dear Sister Outsider.”

Back on September 15, 2022 I attended the book launch at the CUNY Graduate Center. This event page by the Center for the Humanities includes a full video of the reading, and more photographs from the event.

Black History Month

Back in February I was invited by New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer to be one of four honorees at the yearly Black History Month celebration hosted by his office. This event is usually held in person, but due to COVID-19, it was held online. 

This week Van Bramer delivered the certificates to each of the honorees. 

Thank you to my Council Member and neighbor Jimmy Van Bramer. I am grateful for this recognition.
