[Xmca-l] Re: Sorry I'm late!



Masha,

Thank you for joining the conversation. I totally missed the metaphor of
trajectories but love what you wrote:

* deeply committed to imagining the future and the now of students. What
Poppa Joe and Mama C are able to do is historicize their lives and literate
trajectories and frame them in ways that their students can view the
process of becoming writers, readers, thinkers, and doers as just that...A
PROCESS.*

The movement across the time and space is essential to the understanding. I
focused on the community that Mama C and Poppa Joe created and compared
this to the informal learning spaces you studied.....

Basically missing the central thesis. These communities were anchored in a
shared trajectory celebrated in the black aesthetic.

I am seeing this trajectory take off in the social media spaces I study and
play in.

I just had a conversation on Twitter last night about grammar conventions
such as *side wink* that evolved on black Twitter. When I watch what
happens on #BlackEdu (originally #BlackEd but had to change because
#blacked had a different vibe and was already used on Black Twitter) or
#HipHopEd I am inspired to see the trajectory evolve.
