Hope Springs Eternal

Cornel West wrote “I cannot be an optimist but I am a prisoner of hope.” I feel the deep reverberations of his words in my head. I am sending off dozens of pages of writing to my five brilliant advisors as I draft this, and my morning was filled with rich dialogues amongst notable critical educators like Ernest Morrell, Kevin Kumashiro and Bill Ayers. I am activated, motivated, and fully aware that another world is possible. I’d love to write more, but I’ve got editing to do! Welcome to the American Spring. #LetFreedomSpring
