Writers Against Racism: "Documenting the Decade"

I was honored to have my inauguration image added to the New York Times series, DOCUMENTING THE n663736677 1997532 7219 Writers Against Racism: "Documenting the Decade"

DECADE, where readers were asked to submit photos of that which impacted the decade, through their lens.

And while I thought, standing wedged between a sea of  millions, waiting to see the first black president get sworn into office was a great impact, clearly, the Writers Against Racism series, I must say topped my year.

I met writers and educators from all walks who shared their stories with us, and continue to work – through their writings – to rid this world of racism! It is a noble feat that the world needs now and will continue to need in the years ahead.

So at this time I would like to wish a happy and joyous new year to all of the W.A.R paticipants, the readers who left comments (and those who did not), and a special thanks to School Library Journal for providing their website as a forum to help us discuss these tough issues.

In the upcoming year, we will continue this journey, but I did not want to let this day pass without sharing my deepest gratitude with each and everyone of you! Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! Congrats on having your photo being featured in the NYT. Being at the inagural of Pres. Obama was definitely the highlight of my decade along with working on his campaign, starting a blog and meeting all these wonderful people through my blog and the W.A.R. series :)
