"We can alter the path of our future and present right now, every day. Someone thought up a state with no Black people. No Black children. No Black women. No Black men. Can you believe that? And they first used their thought to make it so.

"What are we going to think up?
What are we going to create in this time? What story are we going to tell that the future will feel.
How powerful is your imagination RIGHT NOW to create it?
How powerful is our action?”

Intisar Abioto.
