my name is my own my own my own / and i can’t tell you who the hell set things up like this / but i can tell you that from now on my resistance / my simple and daily and nightly self-determination / may very well cost you your life

from poem about my rights by june jordan 

I LOVE this poem.  And June Jordan.

American Revolutionary: The Life of Grace Lee Boggs unfolds like a layered conversation. Director Grace Lee was working on The Grace Lee Project, seeking stories from Asian American women who share a common name with her. In a moment of serendipity, Grace Lee met Grace Lee Boggs; a social activist born in 1915, feminist, supporter of the black power movement, lover of good questions, and idol to many. What emerged from their initial meeting became a decade-long project of conversations and sharing stories. Lee captures candid and intimate sides of Boggs and the flux of activism, revolution, inner reflection, and structural change. As Boggs narrates histories of activism and community in Detroit, she also provides her refreshing and restorative wisdoms on spiritual and social transformation.

Can we talk about how CAAM gif-ed Grace Lee Boggs.

Love this!

Answer
  • Question: I just found out about you guys and i almost cried. I've been looking for positive queer asian representation in media for ages, but the scattered few only portray asians in a stereotypical, albeit negative way. Thank you for making this series. It means so much to me, to see people like me facing the unique issues of our group. I often feel ostracised even in queer communities because of my race and my diverse background. Thank you for making me feel less alone. - arrheta

Day 54: Two days into the voting for Mr. Hyphen and I am definitely feeling the impact of it all. If this what running for office feels like, it’s no joke and a lot of work. I have a new appreciation for those individuals. No matter what happens I gotta remind myself that it is an honor to make it to the semi-finals and be one of twelve. Now I gotta trust that what is meant to be will be. Grateful for this opportunity and for all of you who have supported me in my life and continue to do so. Thank YOU! Let me be YOUR Mr. Hyphen 2014!
