Fall at IDA 🍃#StudentRepost @alcolmm ・・・ This quarter I'm documenting this class called Liberation Through Land: Organic Gardening for Racial Justice. Some of the higlights include learning about black agrarian history in the u.s. and about indigenous care of land in california. I've also been having fun with the whole documenting process. The farm is a very beautiful place that I'm only getting to after being so close for years. I'd love to show ppl around the farm, take a few photos and chill with chickens. lmk
Tonight IDA's Art+Practice cohort & The Black Feminist Collective hosted an evening of creative meditation on Alice Walker's definition of Womanist. Experience Alice Walker Wednesday at Memorial Church, Stanford University.
