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 occupy. I’m excited to be able to do this work as an Undergraduate Learning & Research Librarian at UC Berkeley Libraries.
I’m also a speculative fiction writer who puts time and energy into crafting meaningful stories. You can find me spinning tales about extraordinary QPOC thwarting danger in faraway lands, wrecking power structures, and falling in love–all at the same damn time.
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.
