Let’s Dance Together! Bridging Cultural Siloes on Campus
Communities have the right to forge their own spaces, so perhaps, proactive solidarity is just as important as inclusion: to have all our voices heard, the way we want them to be. Anyway, I’ll be performing at Cultural Rhythms this Saturday with Candela (I’m nervous!).
