“If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” – Zora Neale Hurston
“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is a normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.” – Assata Shakur
Welcome. I am a Black American currently getting a Masters in Visual Sociology in London. Here you’ll find my thoughts on this big transition as well as feminism, womanism, anti-blackness, classism, photography, music, books, and various other topics. I’ll frequently post links to articles about a variety of other things as well. I love jeans, red lipstick – currently into matte colors because…OMG – and public transportation.
