Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Everytime I come here I see something in the work that I haven’t before. I love the way inner city minority kids have access to this exhibit where they possibly haven’t had an experience with visual art before and can see themselves or see that they can be artists too! Glad @hebrubrantley is one of Chicago’s own. #hebrubrantley #chicago #art #paradedayrain

National Moment of Silence in Chicago has taken the streets. Standing against police brutality. Everybodies so young and on fire to change things. We have to find the next steps to take though or else we’ll keep losing. #nmos14 #nmoschicago14

"Black lives matter" NMS14. What happens after the gathering though?

Stand against police brutality. Justice for Mike Brown. “Stand with Ferguson.” #nms2014 #nmschicago14 #ferguson National Moment of Silence in Chicago.

You know you’re at a college restaraunt hangout when you are allowed to write on the furniture. This place has its own little culture. (Looking forward to the food!)

Bud Billiken Parade Day, back to school parade. A major annual event for Black children in Chicago and Southsiders. Living right across the street the parade I spent many years here with my mom and dad. Nice to see all the education groups, high school dancers and band members (my high school is also in it but we never did anything fun)

So excited about these new reads. “United - Captured by God’s vision for Diversity” by Trillia Newbell about race, and the need for diversity within the church and the minority experience, and “The Post Church Christian” dealing with the current millinieals leaving the church. Attempting to learn to study, get closer to God, and read on Faith (which I always found interesting) #faith #God #Christianbooks #moodypublishing #thechurch #theminorityexperience #milliniealfaith #youngandchristian

High school graduation. Me with probably my favorite person ever on this earth, can’t begin to list all the things my great auntie has done for me and still does. I owe her everything and love her dearly. She’s basically my Grandmother (as I wasn’t able to meet either of my Grandmothers before they passed on.) I don’t know what I’d do without this little woman. <3
