Tumblr gets all the wins for spreading the word on so many issues that need more attention.

It’s hilarious to read the comments pertaining to the female embodiment that is Chinaka Hodge. “I literally had no idea Chinaka Hodge was a girl until I watched this video…” kids need to do their homework. Chinaka is awesome and I was lucky enough to meet her at an 826 Valencia event before i knew the magnitude of her talent (only of her beauty). I probably would’ve been way more awkward if I had known how talented she really is!!

From last week’s performance in Berkeley. My phone hates recording things for more than 2 minutes so I got really lucky that it captured nearly the entire piece minus the last two words of “your son”.
