I see delightful tweets about folks being admitted into the grad schools of their choice (🎊🎉). I know others didn't. This tweet is for you. I DIDN’T GET INTO ANY OF THE Ph.D. PROGRAMS I APPLIED TO ON MY FIRST TRY. Sometimes it takes a second/third go. So please don't give up.

Quoted @AOC

1. Who cares what school someone went to? Entire generations of working class kids were encouraged to go into more debt under the guise of elitism. This is wrong.

2. Nowhere does it say we must trade-off early childhood education for student loan forgiveness. We can have both.

Biden's excuse for not cancelling student debt is ridiculous. Most students burdened with debt don't go to Harvard, they go to the kind of school I teach at, a big public one & they are hurting financially after graduation. Keep the pressure on him, @AOC #CancelStudentDebt

I wish Ms. Diane Nash appeared in this documentary. She's always mentioned, yet hardly seen. She's only of the last women alive in the video montage. We should hear her voice. #BlackChurchPBS #BlackChurchCARSS

I wish the photographs were more than illustrations in #BlackChurchPBS. Many Black clergy were photographers documenting church life and later some were filmmakers. How did this visual culture reflect and shape Black religious life? #BlackChurchCARSS

Whoever is teaching Civil War, Reconstruction, Redemption, Jim Crow and/or disfranchisement has so much current material to work with in their courses. The NAACP is suing Trump for inciting the insurrection using the KKK Act of 1871. So appropriate for the times then and now.

Also to the liberal white people frustrated as the House Managers presented an air tight case against a white supremacist insurrection to no avail, I say, ‘welcome.’ This is what it feels like to scream into the wind. Black folks know it well. As you can see, it truly sucks.

Amiri Baraka.
Dr. Maya Angelou.
Prof. Toni Morrison.
All attending James Baldwin's funeral.

All four reunited.
All wearing their crowns.

These Black literary geniuses, reshaped literature, & they left us with their gifts & we're forever change. #ToniMorrison #RIPToniMorrison
