The Social Justice Living Learning Community (LLC) enjoyed visiting DC! We learned more about specific neighborhoods & community advocates in DC at the Anacostia Museum. #SUsocialwork #socialjusticeLLC
Art Club traveled to the Anacostia Community Museum for the African American Stamp Collecting program today. We made quilt pieces, dressed up as prominent figures and heroes, and met the Ebony Society of Philatelic Events and Reflections’s founder, Dr. Esper G. Hayes! ✨
Art Club kiddos left the @smithsonianacm
with a photo, a swag bag, and an invitation to return to see their quilt pieces (!) installed (!!) in a museum (!!!). My heart is so full with these Saturday mornings.
Annoyed with museums for forcing me to choose between 2 great symposia today but still reeling from inspiring activists holding space, putting global perspective on the local, insisting on housing as right not commodity & only pic is this little window montage of #dcactivism

what did I miss?
"The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “emergency situation” in which we live is the rule. We must arrive at a concept of history which corresponds to this. Then it will become clear that the task before us is the introduction of a real state of emergency; and our position in the struggle against Fascism will thereby improve. Not the least reason that the latter has a chance is that its opponents, in the name of progress, greet it as a historical norm. – The astonishment that the things we are experiencing in the 20th century are “still” possible is by no means philosophical. It is not the beginning of knowledge, unless it would be the knowledge that the conception of history on which it rests is untenable." #walterbenjamin
