I would like to say thank you to all of you in attendance today.  I want to acknowledge the other scholars here today; the teachers and administrators, community members, Brooklyn

    • Hey! This is sort of unrelated to the topic, but we’re discussing a problem we have with our library here in Back of the Yards College prep in Chicago. The city took our school library and turned it into a public library after the previous public library broke down. We’re one of the few schools in Chicago that don;t have their own library and we want to do something that helps us get our library back. If you have any ideas on how we can bring more awareness to this issue, please us know! Thank you!

  • Dear Kimani,
    I am amazed by your “I Stand With Angela,” post because it gave me a new perspective of Angela Davis and her role in civil rights. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Angela Davis was a very motivational figure during the Civil Rights movement and is still one till this day where she fights for justice no matter what…[Read more]

  • Dear Milton,
    I am moved by your “I Stand With Angela,” because it gave me a clearer understanding of who Angela davis is and what she did for the black population. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Angela Davis deserves the award because of the hard work and dedication she has put into her race and culture. As an activist, schol…[Read more]

  • The Alabama Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) rescinded the Fred Shuttlesworth Humans Rights Award from Angela Davis because she does not meet the criteria after a letter was sent from the Holocaust

    • I agree with your argument that Angela Davis should receive the award that she was originally nominated for. I also feel like the tweet the Jewish Voice For Peace made about Angela Davis was very unnecessary and inappropriate as well.

    • Dear Nathaniel :
      I am Incredibly amazed of your essay structure and your format. You state what is going on with famous
      activist Angela Davis and the award she was nominated for from the Civil Rights Institute. I feel that this
      essay was relevant to the fact that she was very bold to step up to the plate and stand her ground for Civil
      Rights that was needed for her people. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is‘’ The current
      events that is happening in Israel is shameful. Along with human rights violations to the Palestinian
      civilians, racism against African Migrants is currently happening’’.I think this is very because
      Another sentence that I thought stood out to me was: “I don’t know whether I enjoy being at the center of
      the controversy. I think I’ve had my share of controversies in my life.” This stood out for me because it
      represents what shes personally been through. Your essay reminds me of something that happened to me.
      One time i was oppressed by the police in a situation that occured that i had completely nothing to do with,
      i was brought to court speaking to a judge And he completely looks over what i have to say, maybe it was
      because i wasn’t light skin.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because
      you are a very outstanding writer with high expectations.

  • Dear Tania

    I am moved by your article, “Why are People Racist?,” You had a strong argument and you went in depth.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “.Racism can be revealed through people’s actions as well as their attitudes.Racism is more than just words, beliefs and actions.” I think this is strongly worded and put things in…[Read more]
