"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise." • • • • • • • • •
On Wednesday night, the poem "Still I Rise" written by Maya Angelou was read by third-year student Joy Collins. • • • • • • • • •

Because #DavidWalker and his #DavidWalkersAppeal. Because #CrispusAttucks. Because the #AfricanMeetingHouse. Because abolitionists. Because race has always been at the center of Boston...the enslaved #Africans and #AfricanAmericans #theIrish #theAmericanRevolution the #BostonBusing and #SchoolDesegregation Fiasco (60s and 70s)...Because David Walker said that if we did not refute #Jefferson's racist-ass ideologies, we (future generations) would further establish them. Because Jefferson established, with the labor of enslaved #AfricanAmericans, the #UniversityofVirginia (#UVA), in #Charlottesville #VA, in 1819. "The whites have always been an unjust, jealous, unmerciful, avaricious and blood-thirsty set of beings, always seeking after power and authority. (David Walker, 1829)

The best thing about social work is your patients/clients looking straight into your eyes, grabs your hand, and say thank you with a huge smile on their face. Being 24 years old, I'm still confused on my place in life. One thing I'm sure on is that I choose the right career path for me. Whether it's working with a person who wants to recover from addiction, or an older person who lives alone and has no one to provide support to them, my patients keep me going. I never know what I'm going to walk into in the mornings for work, but I always reflect at the end of the day when I'm driving back home. I often work with people who almost died and then I work with people who want a new beginning in life. It's by far not an easy job, and this job intimidated the hell out of me when I first started working here. But as long as I remain motivated, compassionated, and knowledgeable, the job does get easier. I learn something new everyday and I'm always excited to learn something new that could change a patient's' life. #socialwork #socialworker #msw #mastersocialwork #medicalsocialworker #clinicalsocialwork #hospital #healthcare #therapist #counselor #advocate #uva #universityofvirginia #charlottesville #wahoo

➡️so much more than an "impromptu 5k", last night we took one big STEP forward (in the form of many little steps) in taking back the streets of #charlottesville ❤ hearts were HAPPY & full as we came together as a community to show what this town--& country--really stands for. Honored #treadHAPPY could help in any way we could. Because we've said it once & we'll say it again: we are #StrongerTogether when we #treadTOGETHER 💪There's so much more work to do, but you gotta take the first step...that first step can turn into MILES. More pics coming later #unitycville #love #MoreThanMiles #thistownRUNSonlove #reclaimthestreets
