a sense of urgency is a white supremacy culture trait. i know that you want me to give you all of the answers now because you've just realized racism exists, but I am busy doing what i've been doing before you arrived.

You can also catch the video on Youtube as @TananariveDue and @EbonyTeach answer the question: How does your work rethink or resist the conventions of speculative fiction? Thanks to @Alex_Corbitt for editing! #literacies https://t.co/quQbfebYqX https://t.co/HYGducvC6n

@writinglit A6: One thing I’ve worked on this year is loving myself. I can’t love my community, my ppl, if I don’t love myself. I can’t fill others from an empty cup. From this, I’ve been able to give love to my fam, community, and friends in ways I hadn’t been able to before. #literacies

A2) Learning how to listen and stand with communities dreaming freedom and organizing towards dreams of freedom. In my work, that means learning from young people leading movements toward justice and liberation. #literacies

#literacies Freire told us about reading the world as well as the word. Teachers are entering communities without reading (engaging in the historical literacy) of the community.

#literacies The question is, do we have the courage to embrace the trajectory and be led by those who will be most comfortable with the new form of literacies that are bubbling up —the youth will be the way-showers (to quote Jay Z)

Start with self. Do the work. Unlearn internalized racism- that is real & inter generational. Heal for your ancestors, yourself & future generations. Know it is a journey & takes time. #literacies https://t.co/hPnSZv3g3R

#literacies There is the movement of opening up to what is around you, and also expanding your ♡ and mind — that’s often were the battle is fought — people are tied to beliefs, people and practices they are used to. Expand the circle.

#literacies @NicoleMirra just published a piece “A Quality of Imagination” that reminds us to check in and listen to youth as we freedom dream possibilities.

#literacies @BLoveSoulPower is a gift to us all! In her book on Abolitionist teaching she offers examples throughout history of how this is done in and for communities—she shows how we were not meant to survive — but thrived anyway through our collective work!

@writinglit #literacies excited to begin shortly! Come one! Come all! Let's Tweet a new world for ourselves and our babies!

Do any Black writers have some exciting news they wanna celebrate? Some full requests? Some agent announcements? Some book deals? Some sushi for dinner that was bomb as hell? Some twist outs that came out vibing? I’m trying to cheer. I’m trying to get hype. I’m trying to party.

I am THIS CLOSE to closing a TV deal to adapt one of my novels and many other opportunities are emerging. Plus, my Twilight Zone episode I co-wrote with @StevenBarnes1 is out now on CBS All Access: Season 2, Ep 8, "A Small Town" https://t.co/YTTDRstP2O

Please stop reading White Fragility. Stop recommending it. Stop sharing it.

One generation’s liberatory identifications becomes the next generation’s constraints. Rather than trying to defend these identity categories, we must share what potential we see in them, listen to critiques and work with the next generation to imagine new radical possibilities.
