Quote of the Day

“My mother made the mistake of assuming that because she sent me to school in an integrated environment, I was going to get a holistic education, but that wasn’t true. I was never taught about Langston Hughes or Zora Neale Hurston. I learned that if I didn’t want to remain ignorant, I’d have to be responsible for educating myself.” – Kevin Powell
