Hello, and thanks for checking out our campaign! We’re Hannah Giorgis and Melissa Centeno, two recent Dartmouth grads from different corners of the country and the African diaspora. This spring, we organized a conference for students from universities across the United States to gather and address under-represented student experiences.
We’re now in the process of turning the stories shared into a book to further amplify student voices, but we need your support to make this book a reality!
Hi friends & followers! My friend Melissa and I are raising money to enable ourselves to continue working to publish a collection of student narratives spanning several predominately white institutions (PWIs) across the country, and we need your help to do it!
If you are able, please, please donate using this link! If not, that’s totally fine; we’d really appreciate as much signal boosting as possible!
This project is something that is really close to my heart, and I’d really love the support of a network I’ve come to cherish over the years. This space has done so much for me already, and I’d be honored if y’all would help me us make this dream real :)

Black woman tears up Oakland City Council
(in response to May Day repression of Occupy Oakland and a newly proposed law that would make it illegal for revolutionaries to carry shields and barricades during marches)
“You’re asking why we need our shields for self defense? After a grenade went off behind my head at 12 in the afternoon and gave me something [PTSD] that soldiers coming back from Iraq have? …The policy don’t need to be changed. We’ve got reform crammed so far up our ass it’s clouding our judgement. The police need to be held accountable… and I’m not a nihilist, but I wish I could BURN EVERY FUCKING THING DOWN, except for the houses, so that people could begin to understand that we don’t need this system to survive… There are people being arrested for trying to start farms…!
DON’T SILENCE ME, don’t you fucking DARE. I am SO TIRED… and if you cut off this mic, I’ll still have a mouth… what you’re dealing with is more than rage…
As a black woman, I’m telling you… you’re not serving the people! You’re only serving capitalism. And if you take our shields, the only thing we have left is our second amendment rights— SO IF WE SHOOT BACK…!
YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO ARREST ME!”

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you.” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
His face is every inch of “I wish a muthafuckah WOULD interrupt my drum solo”
Dat face tho.
Here lies Mo.
Face down at his desk.
Story half finished.
Slain by a small child who dropped the bass.
