This photograph of Sister #GraceLeeBoggs and I was taken in April 2010 at Uncle Vincent Harding’s home in Denver, CO when we gathered to learn from and share with Sister Grace.
Sister Grace is in hospice care. Please keep her in the places that are sacred in your life. She is a living legend, a true American Revolutionary, who, at 99 years of age, has consistently walked the talk of peace, justice, freedom, dignity, hardcore grassroots organizing and intergenerational work for decades.

Frustrated because as a womxn of color, my work in equity is often seen as self serving. The irony is that on campus, people of color are often cornered into diversity work, e.g: serving as a representative for students of color on a committee, task force, etc. Yes, this work validates my identities in ways that my “general education” experiences did not (because they cater towards the majority— which are not people who look like me), but more importantly, I do this work because I remember how comforting it was for me as a student to see someone putting their energy towards ensuring that my history and experiences no longer remained invisible. So to those who are experiencing the same struggle, remember this: you belong here, you matter, and you are loved.

The world is not a kind place. You will feel a lot of pain. Make sure you are with someone who makes it all bearable.
You’ve got too much soul to be handled by someone who has never been passionate.
A Father’s Recipe For The Right Guy
One secret to a happy life: finding the right guy you should date or even marry and this is no easy task. Here is a good advice from a father for his daughter in finding the right guy. This is sweet and touching at the same time.
Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week.
This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
destroy media’s idea of asian girls being petite, pale-skinned waifs with bobbed hair and blunt bangs who are either the quiet fighter or a submissive giggly teen
destroy the fetishizing and infantilizing of asian girls
