Til Infinity:The Souls Of Mischief Official Trailer from Til Infinity Doc on Vimeo.
An incredible film if you can find it, watch it! I saw it on Xfinity. Look for it. Hella inspiring as a kid who bought and listened to the Blue tape, and as an Oakland native.
Its been awhile. Here are brothers Elijah and Zander! These are two really cute mixed kids coming from both African American and Latino backgrounds. They are both into sports and Elijah's thing is music, and Zander's is science and math.

Yo, this is a recap of the most recent Social Justice Book Fair in Oakland at Chapter 510 featuring a bunch of authors, illustrators, The Alphabet Rockers, Two Mamacitas Pop up kitchen, and DJ XCairocitosX.
I finally got a chance to contribute some book recommendations for kids book in an official blog post kind of way. Please go check out the picture books, comics, and middle grade/ya books myself and many other authors and illustrators recommend. Just about every book has some hint of social justice in it, which is why the "M is for Movement" blog exists.
Rachel Meyer is a Yoga teacher and practitioner from South Dakota, Oakland, and now Boston. I took her yoga class several times with my wife Joy in Oakland at a spot called Flying Yoga. One of many classes she taught around the Bay. I went because I wanted to just spend time with my wife (before we were married) and because she said that the instructor (Rachel) was her favorite. Once I took the class I could see why, she gave a good flow and breadth to the class. She gave guidance and instruction, but was not over bearing or annoying. She spoke not only of correct posture and the names of the poses, but of how the practice of moving through them could be applied to other aspects of our lives. Rachel has a great energy about her and from the way she lead those classes you'd think she's been doing it for over a century.
