@OlivetteOtele now at UCLA talking about untold histories, complex identities, decolonization, ongoing processes of liberation, and engaging "the communities that teach us." Such powerful, beautiful work.

Not sure why newspapers & people focusing on Hartlepool. I'm more interested in knowing what's happening in Bristol and London right now.

By-Election 2021 in Wales. I'd be surprised if The Senedd changed hands (Labour in last 20 yrs or so). Only change I'm anticipating is how well Welsh party Plaid Cymru does. In my constituency, pretty sure it'll be Labour but Plaid & Lib Dems might do well. Just need 2wait & see.
