Chapter 37-Charlie from the University of California, Irvine

Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Charlie.

In this chapter, Charlie talks about travel being about thriving or withering for her. She shares her experiences of working in higher education and what it’s like to fight for herself while she’s fighting for others’ rights. Charlie gets into how she’s had to use comedy to survive, especially on a cross-country trip with white co-workers through several cities in America. She tells us how she felt being in those places with historical implications jumping out at her everywhere. Charlie also big ups her housemates who give her a sense of home, and talks a bit about how they came together.

You can connect with Charlie on Twitter, and if you learned something from her or want to support her, you can Cash App her $Celtimoon.

Charlie is a fan of T.S. Madison and how she’s survived the trials in her life. And Charlie has been bopping to the sadness that is Summer Walker. She also loves this quote from Audre Lorde:

For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change. Racism and homophobia are real conditions of all our lives in this place and time. I urge each one of us here to reach down into that deep place of knowledge inside herself and touch that terror and loathing of any difference that lives here. See whose face it wears. Then the personal as the political can begin to illuminate all our choices.

Audre Lorde
