Celine:

The play SWEAT is as great as everyone says: intense examination of how we are now in this era. Automation, globalization and race, class, sex and gender drama of our world since years 2000, 2008 and today. An instant classic I’d see again and again. Why it won the Pulitzer for Drama in 2017 and why she’s won it twice. Inspired and riveting, I’m still in it. Thank goodness for plays to help us see and understand our world.

Celine:

The UC Presidents Postdoctoral Fellowship Program presented the STAIN REMOVAL book event with #angeladavis and #jreidmiller and it blew my mind multiple times!

“How dare you date me for my personality? I’ve worked hard on this body!”

“The masters tools were made by us”

So many books films ideas activism and action born out of tonight! Thank you for the honor of introducing and moderating this event @berkeley @cal @sfsu in the house and @UCSC

There was nowhere else I’d rather be than in the presence of such brilliance and empathy. Thank you Angela Davis and J. Reid Miller!

Celine:

First at yoga super early on a day full of three major deadlines! Seizing whatever time I have to read @joseiswriting’s book not only to celebrate the first day of @filipinoamericanhistorymonth but to dive deep into the search for justice, home, belonging he embodies. His writing is so urgent and strong and I am so moved by the possibilities for all our @SFSU students that this Gator represents. You need to give our commencement speech this year!
