read with me
No movement should leave behind those who cannot afford to learn about it.
I firmly value and believe as such. For that reason, I make claim here and create this space of (un)learning so that we enter and lead the resistance, as wholly, fully, and intimately as we can. Unlike many of my counterparts in academic and activist space, I do not deal with or attempt to comply with the concept of objectivity as truth, because I do not believe in it. These readings are as subjectivist as I am. This does not mean I wholeheartedly believe every sentence and idea written, spoken, drawn through these readings but that I simply recognize, interact with, and acknowledge that they have shaped me. In fact, I cannot, with absolute certainty, write here that there is even one author whose work I one hundred percent agree with; I always find something I would add, change, or ponder over some more. I find that to be okay, necessary even, as critical thinkers and theorists.
At this point, there are over 100 pdf’s including but not limited to, bell hooks, Michael Foucault, Angela Davis, Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Edward Said, Andrea Dworkin, and Frantz Fanon. These readings, like my (un)learning, are ever-changing. I will send out an email update when new readings are added onto here. Please feel free to email recommendations as well, through my connect/contact page.
