As an instruction librarian dedicated to anti-racist, critical pedagogies (such as Critical Race Theory, visionary fiction, & speculative futuring) I strive to dismantle supremacist structures inside and outside of the learning environments I facilitate. I’m grateful to do this work as an Undergraduate Learning & Research Librarian at UC Berkeley Libraries.
I’m also an SFF writer and 2020 Ignyte Award finalist. Previously, my short fiction has appeared in FIYAH Literary Magazine and PodCastle.
And finally, I’m a community manager for We Here, along with managers Charlotte Roh & Jennifer Ferretti, and several other community administrators. We Here is for black, indigenous, or other people of color (BIPOC) who work in libraries, archives, or are in LIS programs. Colleagues of color, regardless of your role in the profession, I hope you’ll join our private Facebook and Slack spaces, because we here, and we see you. White allies, you can and should read the work coming out of our Medium space, and follow along with us on Twitter.
