Virginia Woolf, A Room Of One's Own
There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.
Upon thinking about what to write for the blog, I stumbled upon this great article and videos from St. Louis, Missouri. This particular article explains how professional artists and African American Urban Youth ages 15-24 are working together to elevate our youths voices so that they are heard in these drastic times of trauma in our lives and neighborhoods.
Not only does this movement support learning and reading, it also helps these students publish their material in which they make money from their own work. Take a look at the article and videos from EDSURGE to follow this great movement.
I hope they expand to the BAY AREA!!!
