Didi Delgado (Lecture Review)

On following black leadership and healing justice

“A lot of white people will say to me, ‘Slavery is ended, what more do you want?’ Well, a lot actually…

“Black people are dying. The more that we place value of property over value of black peoples’ bodies the more it disgusts me.

“If you look around the room and there are only white people, you’ve already lost.

“We treat people like exits instead of entryways.”

“Language is ableist as fuck.

“A lot of white people don’t understand what microagressions are, because they don’t experience them daily. Microagressions are those conversations you’re having about us in your head, and the thing is, we can hear them.”
