.@linasigns starts of with a powerful reminder and acknowledgment about the constant presence of violence and oppression against BIPOC people in this country and how BIPOC scholars are forced to exist in spaces which thrive on white supremacy and settler colonialism #HDLS14
I love how Ryan's keynote starts with a nod to the oddity of doing work during Covid times and the routine, simple things we are missing by not traveling for #HDLS14 especially coffee from the UNM SUB Satellite Coffee and having Frontier burritos for lunch w/ friends
