My compa dr. john marquez's first book. he is now a professor at northwestern university. he and i were roommates while he was he was finishing his masters at ucsd. the idea for this instagram account is very much influenced by the many discussions we've had regarding the challenges of building coalitions between black and brown communities. i owe this man alot. and i always to seek his advice when i am composing or trying to clarify concepts that are forming in my mind. he helped me through many trying times and he continues to be a rock in my life. sin scared! that is our motto. black and brown get down! #johnmarquez #blackandbrownsolidarity #blacklivesmatter #northwesternuniversity
We can do anything, if we do it together. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽 ——————————————————————-image description: yellow background with drawings of families with flowers surrounding them. one person holding a sign that reads “black and brown, unidos podemos” and another person wearing a shirt that reads “black lives matter”. art by @yocelyn.riojas
Had a great time #naacpconvention
for black and brown communities we know our struggles for justice and equality are intrinsically linked. we know our work together is vital.
thank you again @naacp@tiffanydloftin for inviting @jolttexas to stand with you all.
