I shared my one and a quarter page notes I read at the Black Lives Matter event! (February 21, 2017 at 6pm)

On Tuesday February 21, 2017 it was the Black Lives Matter event at NJCU in GSUB 129. It was one of Professor Edi Giunta’s Memoir events. Edi celebrated 20 years at NJCU teaching Memoir to college students at NJCU this Spring 2017. I congratulated her and stood at the microphone as the event began after everyone had gotten there. In my page long notes I shared my story and I thanked Edi. I shared first before any of the scheduled readers or presenters read or shared. Thanks to Rashad. He was leading the event and he let me go first. That was not planned. I am thankful that Rashad did that for me. He’s awesome!
