Day 2 August 17, 2014 

Got to meet my dental class today. It was interesting to see how many people forgot names they just learned haha (myself included smh, gotta do better). Basically, the guy who made the invitation did a very good job of setting things up and filling us with unlimited alcohol. 

Afterwards, I decided to venture off to help Manyang ( Check out his blog @ humanity helping sudan project on tumblr). At the Washington Convention Center, there was an event for Video Gamers. After noticing “Brooke” floating in the air (Pikachu), I realized how huge this event was. Got to even take pics with my favorite super hero. I know I can be a bit of a nerd when it comes to these things, but the idea that they were going to make Manyang into a video game to spread the word about South Sudan is incredibly amazing. 

Batman was quite the camera hog, none the less we managed to stop him long enough to grace us with a pic or two….or maybe I just stole the second one ha! Good Times. 

My Day 1 August 16, 2014 
First day in the new place. Hard to believe that I’m finally away from the house. It’s a blessing to see that most of the areas in my life turned around for the better. My greatest hope is that front his point I only improve. Leave all the past behind and from here push forward. Word to new beginnings.

This is one of my favorite photos. I’ve always celebrated the concept of “perception through contradiction”; which is sometimes considered a form of rebellion. To me, this picture portrays the ideal of defying odds, reshaping “reality” and that the impossible is possible.

Malcolm X at a meeting in Paris, November 23, 1964

  • White interviewer: If it was our white ancestors who bought you and enslaved you, we are their children. We are the new generation. Why don't you call us your brothers?
  • Malcolm X: A man has to act like a brother before you can call him a brother. You made a very good point, really, that needs some clarification. If you are the son of the man who had a wealthy estate and you inherit your father's estate, you have to pay off the debts that your father incurred before he died. The only reason that the present generation of white Americans are in the position of economic strength that they are is because their fathers worked our fathers for over 400 years with no pay. For over 400 years we worked for nothing. We were sold from plantation to plantation like you sell a horse, or a cow, or a chicken, or a bushel of wheat. It was your fathers who did it to our fathers, and all of that money that piled up from the sale of my mother and my grandmother and my great-grandmother is what gives the present generation of American whites [the ability] to walk around the earth with their chest out; you know, like they have some kind of economic ingenuity. Your father isn't here to pay his debts. My father isn't here to collect. But I'm here to collect and you're here to pay.
