Guest op-ed: Silent Sam speaks

The gate to UNC needs to be widened, not narrowed. There need to be permanent reminders, including of me, to symbolize our strained turning toward true respect and equality for all our citizens. Then, these pieces together can create a great space for open dialogue to bind and seal our wounds.

That’s why I’m writing this article — to encourage you to come to his talk regardless of what political affiliation you lean toward. You’ll learn something. You’ll probably have a decent time. You’ll certainly meet some interesting people. There might even be free food (I doubt it, but it’s worth the risk). And, if all else fails, you can gather a few friends outside and start protesting.

Hopefully this exhibit will inspire women to make art that accurately depicts their own strength, push men to reflect on the way they represent female subjects in the art they create and challenge the public to question the way women have been reduced to female bodies in art.

Column: SOS: I have a crush!

I am afraid. I am afraid of so many things — climate change, the GOP, cockroaches living in my kitchen — but most of all, I am afraid of how much I like you.

Guest Op-Ed: Holding out hope for CAPS

“I’ll always hold hope for you.”   In light of those words from my nurse practitioner at CHS, I am holding hope for CAPS and its ability to serve more students in need, increasing their access to mental healthcare.
