"Black visual identity was represented by 1.5% of the student population in our supposedly ultra-liberal institution but we crafted lasting and meaningful relationships. Biking among the forest in Santa Cruz never felt as lonely as it did in the mountains despite feeling overall like I had less friends. The legacy of our shared experience as the 1.5% will carry on much longer than our knowledge or the importance of that number. As we branch out to the farthest reaches of our journey, we will still be united by that legacy of our shared experience in Santa Cruz. And to any of them reading this, or any of our audience who resonates, I say this - you have another legacy. Go build with empathy and create your own experience of African / Afrodiasporic unity." -+Kimani Okearah

"Like most Africans that were born and raised in predominantly African societies, the concept of being a black person is first encountered when one goes overseas, to a place where they become part of a minority group. I find that universities tend to encourage students to form student unions. For example, my university encouraged this by creating country themed activities to create awareness and learn from our individual cultures." -+Asma'u Shaheedah

As much a book about African femininity as it is an ethnological work of art which paints the landscape of what life is like for the post-colonial African woman in Senegal, West Africa. It’s a book I’ve read several times that still reverberates with poignant truths which inspire and defy. A book that reads conversationally and poetically at the same time.

"From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation is a purposeful and necessary work for anybody looking to understand the “how exactly did we get here” question of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In every era of the Afrodiasporic struggle against white supremacy, there are voices that are called to provide people perspective responsibly. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s contribution deserves its place in this history." -Kimani Okearah

"I've never shared this with anyone, but now I've decided to because I recognise and highly believe in the healing properties of shared experiences and how they can lead the troubled to help." -+Benjamina E. Dadzie

"African poetry for me started out on tumblr. I would read little posts about Africa and being African, the poems would soundly resonate with me and I would look at the little box below for tags to quickly find the author’s name and stalk them. Somehow, I discovered a new world that pushed me to write my own poetry. It was exhilarating expressing myself in a new way I did not know was accessible to me." -+Asma'u Shaheedah
