Women’s March in Washington, D.C. with Taina Asili

So many Goddard students and faculty participated in the January 21st Women’s March in marches across the country. This series highlights some of those marches. Taina Asili, a graduate of the Individualized MA in Transformative Language Arts, not only marched but performed in Washington, D.C. Here’s her account from her newsletter (more at TainaAsili.com) and a video.

Last weekend I had the honor of performing at three incredible events in protest to Trump’s inauguration. On Thursday I performed at an amazing DisruptJ20 concert featuring Immortal Technique, Sammus, Evan Greer, Rebel Diaz and more! On Friday afternoon I performed to thousands at the DisruptJ20 rally. And on Saturday I performed for a million at the Women’s March, alongside activists I admire such as Angela Davis, Janet Mock, and Gloria Steinem, and artists I love like Toshi Reagon, Climbing PoeTree, Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Angelique Kidjo, The Indigo Girls and Madonna. Last weekend was a profound whirlwind. My emotions were all over the place as I prepared to head down to Washington D.C. to sing in protest to Trump’s inauguration.
