Other than the little tweaks folks are working on, we think it looks pretty great! It held up last week when we hosted our Summer Institute gathering!

We are pretty humbled we get to walk the halls with her and have her lead us at VDS. Will post her charge to the grads where she recalls these very lyrics from Tindley’s hymn. Grateful for your leadership again this year, !

Dean is a force and an incredibly humble person. She closed out the institute singing one of her favorite songs The Storm Is Passing Over. What a joy to see this side of her.

suggests that Black folks often live in a panopticon whereby the “observer” the world reduces/ flattens Black culture—rhythms/cadences of Black life through stereotypes. I am learning today.

Dean conceptualizes “matrix of vexations” as being informed by the question “what does it mean to have to justify your existence?” It’s the interrelationships between religion/politics among URM, particularly Black communities.
