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.
