“There is an old church hymn that goes, ‘My soul looks back and wonders, how I got over?’ The song lyrics are an exercise of self-reflection, the singer occupies a location of triumph over adversity of some type while touching the very essence of the struggle. This book, at its core, is about how Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people—by telling stories of ways they have been wounded by individuals and institutions—detail how they struggle against harm, and what literacy and love have to do with it.”—from FASHIONING LIVES: BLACK QUEERS AND THE POLITICS OF LITERACY. We’re lucky to have Eric Darnell Pritchard back at BLSE this summer, teaching “Queer Pedagogies in Writing Studies” and “Literacy Education and American Film.” #ericdarnellpritchard#siupress#fashioninglives#blse#breadloaf#davison#library#vermont
Woke up craving for this old school red bean bun from📍Hiap Joo Bakery which is still using traditional wood fire ovens!
While others go crazy over their banana cakes, I actually love their buns more, esp when served fresh and warm 😍 This fluffy bun came with a fragrant, slightly charred top and was filled (very generously!!) with smooth, mildly sweet red bean paste.
Also recommend their amazing coconut buns!
