"I know now that the most damaging thing a people in a colonial situation can do is to allow their children to attend any educational facility organized by the dominant enemy structure."

George Jackson

Taken from his book “Soledad Brother: The Prison Writings of George Jackson.” (page 7)

Further on, George later says : “They send us to school to learn how to be so disgusting. We send our children to places of learning operated by men who hate us and hate the truth. It is clear that no school would be better.” (page 255)

This was taken after an interview I conducted with my friend Marylin, a young SF native, about her experience and views on gentrification in the Mission District. I had to take advantage of that view! We were both feeling good after the interview and I am happy that she was able to share her stories with me!

Mission Branch Public Library. I haven’t been back here in years. This is where I would spend my summers as a kid with my sisters. It was close to home, safe, and best of all, free. I would come here on my own to escape whenever I could. I’m so thankful that I grew up enjoying reading. For some reason, most likely due to school and hella stress at home, I stopped reading for fun. It’s still challenging to find time to read what I want. I think that is partly why I love my major so much, Latin American and Latino Studies. It has helped connect me to many of the books that I would have loved to come across as a kid. 

I hope to write a book one day. Maybe some day, a young Latina will find it in their public library and see themselves in it, be validated, and be inspired. <3
