The Immediate Need for Emotional Justiceemotional
By Yolo Akili

Oppression is trauma. Every form of inequity has a traumatic impact on the psychology, emotionality and spirituality of the oppressed. The impact of oppressive trauma creates cultural and individual wounding. This wounding produces what many have called a  "pain body", a psychic energy that is not tangible but can be sensed, that becomes an impediment to the individual and collective's ability to transform and negotiate their conditions. - Read more

Reclaiming "Asian American" (Some thoughts) 
By Words and Steel

I know I don't really repost much on Tumblr, and rarely if ever bother to write something of my own, but I've been marinating on a few thoughts partly in response to (but long brewing beforehand) a recent API students town hall held on campus a few days ago. This in no way is meant to denigrate the hard work of the student organizers who put it together or to dismiss the real concerns voiced during this time, but rather I hope can re-pose a few questions that I voiced during that time which I felt were not engaged with in any significant way. - Read more 

Spotlight Feature Disclaimer:
The Spotlight Feature is a space where we invite the entire community to reflect & provide thoughts on topics that we at the Cross-Cultural Center are currently thinking & talking about. The CCC strives for meaningful, productive dialogue and context with one another. Please provide your insights on our Tumblr site and follow us for future uploads! peace. love. JOY. always!
