We stand in solidarity with the uprising unfolding across the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Jamel Floyd, and those affected by generations of structural violence against Black communities.

We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

Glowing light at the last breath of day,

Distant skeletons framing staggering timbers,

Eco-friendly to planetary nebula,

All attesting to divinity and humane intellects.

Spleens, vessels interstellar concurring with

Degrees of preemptive atrophy and sublimity.



Here digital automatism propagating

With dashing elasticity. Cartography, optics,

Astrology, botany, geology, magnetic declination,

All infused with material spectrum,

While attaining a model equilibrium,

Like a North Song landscape painting.
