Anarchists Against Voting

7 Feb

 This is an article I wrote for the school newspaper- Hampshire College’s The Climax. They told me only 650 words, which made it very difficult to make my argument in this op-ed. Comments would be welcome, as I would like to develop a much stronger piece for future use in a zine.

Curtis J. Holt

1 Feb

This is an article I wrote on Curtis J. Holt  Sr. for Issue # 2 of my zine  Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants.  I figured I should publish this stuff online too so more people can read it.

The Civil Rights era is a time period that continues to interest me, and specifically as related to my hometown of Richmond, Virginia. In an attempt to expose other people to this amazing and under represented history I am going to reproduce the history of Curtis J. Holt Sr., who was an African American civil rights activist in Richmond. Continue reading

Readin up on Civil Rights

22 Oct

I just finished a book called Civilities and Civil Rights: Greensboro, North Carolina, and the Black Struggle for Freedom by William H. CHafe. I’m trying to bolster my civil rights knowledge just as a foundation for my life in general and my senior thesis specifically. It was interesting to read because the first sit-ins occurred in Greensboro. Continue reading

Labor Pool Free Food Program

11 Oct

In my research on radical activism in RIchmond and in talking to my Food Not Bombs friends before I learned that on a couple different occasions activists have done a Labor Pool Free Food Program where they bring as much food as they can scrounge to Temp agencies in the morning at least once a week. They bring fruit, pastries, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  I think this is a really great plan. Temp agencies in Richmond at least make a toooon of money off of the temp worker. (A solution might be a non-profit temp agency). So temp workers get screwed. Feeding them is a good idea. I would like to help revamp this program when I am in Richmond full time. All it would require would be a small collective of people. Any takers?
