Beyond Safe Spaces
Richard D. Bartlett

As I just started an applied doctoral program in American Studies in an urban university in midwestern Indianapolis, Indiana, USA — as the only person of color, a Black woman — with a focus of equity in city planning, this article really resonated with me. Ive been having various conversations on the effectiveness of activism and organizing spaces, the difficulty of community in what many have termed “pc culture,” and how we help to educate people on the growing complexity of multiple oppressions when the burden is on educating ourselves on things we might not know exist…Whoo, what a mouthful, and my brain is already tired. But I think you are on to something that I feel has been budding in me. Thank you for sharing!
