A Life Situated in History

For years I’ve carried an image around in my head that I constantly refer back to for inspiration when I think of Black history, racial justice, social change, and how Black lives, including my own, are situated within that history.

I attempted to write those thoughts out a little over a year ago in a note I called “We Make Black History Everyday. We Rise, We Survive, We Fly”.

You can find it at Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
