I have been following the situation in Baltimore pretty closely on the news and the best way I can think to describe it is; intense. At first I wasn’t sure what to say or how to say it. Then, yesterday, the busiest day for me with student staff evaluations, transition meetings, staff meetings, and an awards reception to host I found myself grabbing a bite to eat with an RA. She asked me “what do you think about Baltimore?” I just kind of word vomited to her. We talked about the complexities of it, our background & how they inform our world view, and some solutions we saw. So I want to ask, do you feel able to talk to your students about #BlackLivesMatter or #Baltimore or #AllLivesMatter? All answers are okay – lets continue the chat on twitter – I would love to hear what you all have to say!
