Happy Birthday Niece!
I had the pleasure of meeting one of the rising intellectual stars in academia back when I lived in Louisville in 2008.
She's the Assistant Professor of Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Louisville, with a joint appointment in the Department of Pan-African Studies. She also holds the Audre Lorde Chair in Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
I've had the honor of doing some trans related panel discussions for her classes when I lived there and when she's not teaching her lucky U of L students, she's the co-hostess of the WFPL-FM radio show Strange Fruit along with Jaison Gardner, AKA Nephew.
But it's all about Niece in this post because today is her birthday!
Happy Birthday Niece! May it be a day as beautiful as you are. May it also be one that is chock full of abundant blessings. And yes, may you celebrate many more of them!
