justice is what love looks like

There is no revolution without love.

Malcolm London Visits Noble Impact Students

words mean things

who are you, who were you, and who do you need to be…

like you have a history that you’re not allowed to know.. why you talk like that

may 2013 ted talks ed:

my highschool is chicago

capitalism raises you but you have to step on someone else to get there

the need for degrees has left so many people frozen

reading does not matter when you feel your story is already written

open mic tribute #BrotherMike

dec 10 at youmediachicago

5:45 – Malcolm London – so many people grew up in this place. we were part of a group of kids who started this.

7 min – i thought about a million things to stay till i got up here and my heart is in my stomach. we were just kids. people that have come out of this space have done amazing things.. we was just kids.. we needed a space to write poems and talk sh&t.. and that saved our lives. we literally grew up here..

10 min -he definitely taught me that revolution starts with love. that was the first man that taught me how to cry.. and here i am crying.. and i don’t care.

11 min – we have to pass that torch. we had millions of kids in here all a time.. and we were kids.. no one was special… we were kids..

on the need for re imagination at the root

we have a larger problem than just one superintendent

not just changing the face of an already failing system

systemic change..

i’ve been organizing in this city for the last 6 yrs

chicago

there’s only one kind of activist…. that’s one that wants to see the world change… we need as many solutions as possible

let’s do this firstfree art-ists.

malcolmlondon on the Green Line today I spoke to Curtez Hall and his two precious daughters Mckenzie & Madison. I asked if I could photograph them as we left the train because seeing him play with his children on the Green Line made me smile. I wanted to share this image with people because there are so many images that don’t bring this sentiment. There is a lot of tragedy. We must fight & imagine a world where Curtez can walk his daughters home safely, where other families like theirs don’t have to worry about genocide, don’t have to worry at all. I don’t always have tangible ideas of what the world should look like after we dismantle these systems, but this is pretty damn close.

don’t know if this next tweet is referencing the above.. they were sent 30 min apart

I think this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
