Okay, folks, here's your crash course in LiveJournal if you're hovering around cyberspace watching this site and we don't know you're there.

This is yet another community space for members of the TESC program Making Change Happen, to stay connected now that our program has ended. This is a space for discussion and debate, announcements, pictures, updates, events, and silly things.

I'm going to recommend a few things to you all as far as this community:

I suggest that everyone sign up for LiveJournal instead of posting anonymously, because when I post event information, for example with my address, what I'm going to do is "lock" the post so that only people who are signed in (and therefore associated with an identity) can access the post and my privacy is maintained.

If you have an LJ id, comment here and I will add you or if you know how simply request to join the community. If you don't have an LJ id, it's really easy to put together and nothing bad happens when you sign up; it's also free; you don't have to maintain a journal if you don't want but having the ID will, like I said, give you access.

My last recommendation is that you add "makingchange" to your friends list so that when you view your Friends postings page, everything here gets posted to that- it's an easy way to keep track of updates. Adding "makingchange" to your list will not give me, the moderator, access to your protected/locked posts unless I, prophet723, am also on your friends list, so don't worry about privacy there either.

Okay, so there you have it! Post questions here or just announce your presence or something. I'm about to go make a locked post with my address for the party in July, so make sure you join this community!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ash

PS- Once a member, to post: go to the journal profile/info page and click the pencil icon.

Hooray!

I got an account! Now, the question is: will I actually be able to KEEP IT UP? Doubtful. But I'll do my best.

race matters

Race Matters

the boy cut me off so I honked
the next light he pulled up next to me
and yelled “bitch”

I rolled down the passenger window and said
“I have a child here
what are you showing her of her culture?”

he looked at her brown skin and cornrows and said
“why’d you have to go and do that?”
I said “Do what”
“Honk like that”
the light changed and I said “never mind”

“bitch” he said as he drove away
he didn't see Cornel West in the back seat

If you are limiting who can join this community, you should add that information to the Community Profile.

I have at this point. The community is intended for people who were involved in a yearlong class at TESC. If you're one of those people please let me know, and I hope I clarified on the profile.
