This past month, Yale University made a radical statement by changing Calhoun College (named after John C. Calhoun who was a national leader that was in favor of slavery and a very open white supremacist) to Hopper College (named after Grace Murray Hopper, a Yale graduate and trailblazing scientist, mathematician, teacher and public servant).
A very good decision, indeed.
Just a little reminder that the most radical act right now would be love, joy and friendship. It would be a huge FUCK YOU to the current cabinet. It’s so easy to get mad right now, but don’t forget the things that sustain us and bring happiness to our lives! I know the fist in the air is an empowering gesture but so is this. 💕
Just some pieces I did during Black History Month. Enjoy!
This is my latest project, working in conjunction with Know Your City in Portland, Oregon. Through their publications and programs, their mission is to educate people to better know their communities and empower citizens to take action. Their core is centered around social justice and I am very honored to be working with a group of creative and like-minded people within my community!
Here are some illustrations that I am submitting for a Post Election Resource Guide, which will serve as a great tool to help the community find the resources they need.
