I exist in many margins, so I try to acknowledge the value of those margins for myself and others. My favorite places to be include mountains, libraries, theatres, urban centers, and classrooms. I believe that inclusion and recognition are among the most critical forms of respect we can offer. Among the examples of human dignity that I honor most are Paul Robeson and Sandra Sotomayor and James Baldwin and Cesar Chavez and Shirly Chisholm. I am deeply appreciative of being in a career in which I can continue to be a student even as I get paid to be a professor.
