“Fighting For What’s Right is Worth It”
In Hillary Clinton’s tear-inducing concession speech this morning, she told the world:
“please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.
It is — it is worth it.
And so we need — we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives.”
I don’t want to say very much on this today – I daresay we are all processing our anger, grief, and sadness in our own ways. We are, no doubt, also coming to terms with the renewed belligerence of racists and sexists everywhere.
I just want to say that yesterday’s goings-on have solidified my belief in this project. Now, more than ever, we need to hear from and champion art by those who are deemed Other. So go forth. Make art. Make good art. Make sure it is seen, or heard, or read.
We will be here, doing exactly the same.
