    • Dear Kimani,

      What a wonderful piece about Stan Kinard! Thank you for sharing your experiences and interactions with this important civil rights icon and activist. He was an important advocate for the Central Brooklyn Community and beyond. He will surely be missed. Rest in Power, Baba Stan Kinard…

      Sincerely,

      Lona

  • I enjoyed reading your “I Stand With Angela” article, it helped me understand way more about Angela Davis and how much of a great person she is. I also agree with your claim about how Angela Davis should get the award she was nominated for.

    • Kimani,
      Your essay on Angela Davis reflects how educated you are on her and her life. It allowed me to get a better understanding of who she was and is. Your claim was basically stating that Angela Davis should receive the Civil Rights award, but in your second to last paragraph it distracts from your claim. I still believe you should incorporate this in your essay, but not so close to the end. You should also defend why she bought those firearms in order to make your claim stranger. An article that I found helps with using counterarguments in order to support your claim which could potentially make your essay a lot more persuading https://writingcenter.fas.harvard.edu/pages/counter-argument Good work!

    • Dear Kimani :

      I am impressed with what you have wrote. Your style of writing is incredible and your format is tremendous.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ Davis was always at protests and giving speeches at rallies to help black people fight for their civil rights” I think this is relevant to Angela Davis because she attended various events and stood up for all civil rights upon African Americans.
