We cannot adequately put into words how grateful we are to the entire community at Wellesley that helped to make this panel possible. We will be sending handwritten thank-you notes and zines to Alana Kumbier and others. Thanks to everyone who showed up!
The funds from this event are 100% going to Race Riot! tour needs. We really appreciate the media team at Wellesley livestreaming the panel as well and the woman (can’t remember her name, sorry! no sleep for two days!) who bought us dinner. If you can read this, please contact us so we can send you some zines!
We’re going to find out if there is an archived video of the panel and if that exists we’ll share it here. <3
Big thanks to Honor Moody who gave us rides to and from the BoltBus stop. You were like every amazing car video game rolled into one to get us to Wellesley on time after our bus was late.
Thanks again to Rachel, Ju and Suzy X. for participating on the panel. Y’all rocked it. It always takes my breath away to witness fierce women of color occupying academic spaces and sharing their firsthand experiences with white supremacy, classism and misogyny, as well as the transformative nature of finding a welcoming community and allies.
That BoltBus ride to MA was brutal and you still had energy for days. And then the BoltBus ride back to NYC stank like ass and for that I am truly, truly sorry … even though that ‘ish wasn’t me. :D
Our mission as POC Zine Project is to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share - activism and community through materiality. The responses we received from participants who approached us afterward with their ideas and questions is why we do what we do.
