I once interviewed Kelis & she said
”Either you’re gonna be the biggest pop sensation in the world, or you’re gonna be able to walk in Central Park & like yourself. I made a very distinct choice. People fought me for it. People think it’s weakness or failure. I don’t really care”

Those who preach peace only when citizens are rising against oppression are the ones betraying it. Peace begins with liberty, accountability and justice and it is the people that are denying citizens of those that are destroying peace, not the other way round.

Senegal is suffering from a crisis that erupted after the wrongful arrest of the President’s primary political opponent. The citizens are protesting against this flagrant violation of democracy, and protesters are losing their lives at the hands of law forcement. #FreeSenegal

With 70+ anti-trans bills pending in state legislatures, anti-equality forces are attacking our families, our dignity, & our existence. We must come together to defeat these bills -- and hold those responsible accountable at the ballot box.

I can't believe this is going to trial:
The trial of a Des Moines Register reporter who was arrested covering racial justice protests last summer begins next week in what experts said is a rare criminal prosecution of a journalist on assignment in the USA.

Took this photo of John Lewis on the Edmund Pettus Bridge 1 year ago today in Selma, Alabama. Critical that we carry forth his legacy and life’s work to ensure all Americans enjoy access to the ballot.

Today is disability day of mourning. I’m mourning the disabled people who didn’t survive this pandemic. I’m mourning the fact that we live in a society that often treats disabled people like afterthoughts. I’m mourning living in a world willing to accommodate everyone but us.

For #HumanRightsDay I joined some powerful friends to call @MBuhari to account for the brutality against #EndSARS protesters. We penned an open letter in @nytimes & will continue to demand justice until all Black Lives Matter. Read, sign, share. 🌍🙏🏾
