Yup. Plus intimidating + aggressive + intense + a bull dozer + a million other derivatives in my lifetime since age 6. Often before I’ve even said a word.

If Black people were immune to the coronavirus, their mortality rate in 2020 would still surpass white people's. If you need to know the difference that difference makes, read this gut-wrenching piece -- twice if you have to:

We need to talk more about voter suppression. We need to talk more about voter suppression. We need to talk more about voter suppression. We need to talk more about voter suppression. It is THE THING that matters this election.

I have a lot of work to do tonight, but this warrants a THREAD. The obscenely distorted narrative that white people embraced civil rights leaders during the Civil Rights Movement, and activists today are just “doing it wrong” must be challenged.

It breaks me. I learned quickly in one too many trips to the ER that my Harvard gear makes a difference in the med attention I get. It’s night and day every time, no matter the level of pain or urgency. No one should have ever EVER have to do that. And what about those who can’t?

bell hooks wrote Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism when she was 19. She's written 40 BOOKS & is known for reading a book a day. She's a genius. How many times have you heard her be reference as the genius she is? Who was the last woman you remember being called a genius?

All this talk about learning pods. Are BIPOC families and caregivers starting pods? Are we giving our time, attention, and resources to them? Are schools supporting their BIPOC families who want to do this? I've not heard much. Anyone else?

A word about choice. As many of you know, I'm a big supporter of giving Ss choice in terms of what they read and write. But if that choice isn't coupled w/anti-bias, antiracist pedagogy, then to what extent are Ss choices reflecting/reinforcing existing biases?

An "I have never met an overpaid Black woman" post stopped me in my tracks. Can't stress this enough Whether you are entry, mid, or senior level, my people...my sistas..always (and I mean every...single...time)...negotiate once you get an offer. Ignore anyone who says otherwise

Doctoral programs should have a course on pedagogy, including guidance on how to create a syllabus and an inclusive classroom environment.

Honored to talk with for nearly an hour about her Historically Responsive Literacy framework. This fresh approach to curriculum, designed with Black excellence at its core, is a must-read for every equity-minded teacher.
