    Understanding the Recent College Demonstrations


    In fall 2015, thousands of college students across the nation organized, protested, and demanded change at their schools. From the hiring of more faculty of color to the teaching of Ethnic and GLBTQ Studies and increasing student programs, students' lists of demands were vast. 


     


    Naysayers and conservative pundits were quick to critique these protests, but too few people took the time to listen and learn from students. As students return to their campuses from winter break, this show brings together student activists, educators, and community members to reflect on students’ demands, the factors fueling their protests, and the possibilities for change.


    Students have long been the ones pushing for educational transformation.These latest demonstrations aren’t isolated incidents or the gripes of so-called "coddled” or “whining” individuals, as some would want us to believe. Instead, students’ demands stem from decades of racism, class inequality, and other forms of exclusion. Now is the time to listen to students’ demands and work together to ensure that our schools serve all of our students.

    Story:

    Handwriting is personal. I love handwriting because I love words, I love type font and well, I love the way words can transform how paper looks. I also love written words, and in particular, handwriting, because it reveals to me something about that person that I could not have otherwise known. Handwriting is intimate. Seeing the handwriting of someone you know and love after a long time of not having seen it makes you smile on the inside a little bit. I have been known to save letters, simply to save someone’s handwriting.

    The science of graphology indicates that how you write can reflect up to 5,000 distinct personality and character traits about you. Cursive is even more conclusive to your style. Handwriting experts claim that all handwriting is unique to the individual. It reminds me of how incredibly unique we each are. We are all taught how to write in the same way, yet we all write d
