  • moving as a black person in non-black spaces
  • tokenism and othering
  • finding community
  • textbook "forgot" something Black
  • microaggressions/ microaggressions (I literally had a teacher call each name on the roster and say, "Hello," to everyone else and to me, "Nakeysha. Yo!"... Yep. No

  • inspiration
  • fun
