Doing social justice work means not just making sure your voice heard, but amplifying the voices that are historically silenced, minoritized, and marginalized.

“Even if segregation is gone, we will still need to be free; we will still have to see that everyone has a job. Even if we can all vote, but if people are still hungry, we will not be free.” — Mrs. Ella Baker, still teaching us every day ♥️ #CiteBlackWomenSunday

T problem solvers.. let’s do it. A follower contacted me asking about differentiation, but lives in a developing nation. He has a blackboard and no electricity. He teaches 6th grade all subjects. If I could buy $100.00 worth of things, what should I buy? #outsidethebox
