1. What was your moment of consciousness/awakening?
I always believed in the power of people, but in law school, I took a critical race theory class and read Kimberly Crenshaw. That moved me beyond knowing about individual harm and bias into a deep critique of systems and understanding of how the laws created systems of oppression in the United States.
2. If you could have lunch with one movement leader alive or dead, who would it be?
Just one? That’s tough… There are so many people who I deeply admire, and who give to our movements in such different and beautiful ways. I would have to pick Octavia Butler, who is a movement leader in my eyes through the radical imagination she has fueled through her Afrofuturism.
3. What would be songs that best represent you?
You can catch me listening to most music people dance (and twerk) to, so some favorite genres are: hip-hop, trap, bachata, reggaeton, Latin trap, alternative R+B, afrobeats, EDM, and too much Drake (basically a genre at this point).
