  • Dear Arual,

    I agree that although BIPOC people have been given “rights” they still suffer racism, discrimination, and harassment. Especially black women who even in their own communities face discrimination, whether that be in feminism that excludes black women or in the black community where they face colorism. There is a lot of…Read More

    Thank you! I think it’s great that you facilitate conversations like these ones on the platform. I think getting to read others’ perspectives as well as being able to vocalize my own opinions and ideas has been really helpful as I get to do a lot of learning and reflecting.

    • Guadalupe, thank you for uplifting the work of civil rights leader and pioneer Harry T Moore. I especially liked that you featured him for his groundbreaking work against lynching and advocating for voter rights in Jacksonville, Florida.

      I also want to thank you for the great response you made on Sianni’s Black Street Wall Street (U School) . Your response was on point. I really appreciate it when students from different locations can share their perspectives on platforms like Youth Voices. Keep doing your thing. You and my students at the U School give me hope for the future.

        Although social media can be a powerful tool I think we need more platforms like these that bridge creativity with learning, all while helping us find and use our own voices!

    • Thank you, Guadalupe, Most of the time when people are questioned to talk about black activists they are only looking or talking about world-known people like MLK, Malcolm X, or rosemary park. However, I find it amazing how you talk about other people. This man didn’t get ¨populur¨for all the effort he put in. Yet, I find it amazing how you talk about someone with a smaller platform because everyone’s voice needs to be heard.

    • Dear Guadalupe

      I find your discussion post “Harry T. Moore” to be very important. Mainly because I have never heard of him before, so it’s great that you’re making his story, efforts, and accomplishments accessible to someone like myself. 

      One sentence you wrote that really stands out to me is “He put his life on the line for the good of society, and although it shouldn’t be the sole duty of one, he woke up each day and did it.” I couldn’t agree more with your stance on this. 

      Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next given how skilled you are at presenting information. Not to mention how you choose to write about such important topics.

  • Dear Sianni,
    I’m shocked and disgusted that white people hold so much entitlement, resentment, and selfishness that they’d be willing to quite literally terrorize and displace a whole black community. It seems like these things are constant, from the displacement of Native Americans to that of African Americans. They all have a similarity, and…Read More
