My 12 year old techie was up late last night editing her sister's video to her essay "The Side Effects of Being Magic: Colorism, Racism, and Misogynoir Against Black Girls & Women." 14 year-old has agreed to share it publicly after I showed her how many times it's been retweeted & all those requests to post the link. It has to be graded first. So proud of her, but her school & teacher get most of the credit. Fun fact: She goes to the same high school Lena Dunham went to.

Love this yellow frock. Below knees & with pockets. #eshakti

She's still working on this paper. Looks like lots of people want to read what she has to say. I'll ask her if she wants to share it after it's graded.
