I love that folks are in the struggle on the front lines but dancing with each other, singing with each other, making mixtapes. When we make decisions, we put on R&B and dance together. We’re remembering that we’re not alive to suffer, to fight, to struggle. We’re alive to love each other and build community, to evolve.
