"You are not in school to get a job, you are in school to become a better human being."
Wrapping up this hectic 3 day weekend with some of Maylei Blackwell’s work on Chicana women who made large contributions/helped shape the movements of the 1960s. Often times women of color’s contributions are over looked or by passed in history books, but these are things we must acknowledge, pay tribute to, and in turn, continue to create ourselves. Lesson of the day: never remain stagnant.
"It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."
