I use to blame others for the state of my life. When I got real, when I got present, to my life, I took responsibility for it all
I stopped bullshitting myself and started to get real
I turned from someone who was scared to someone who thought it's now or never
My revolution? Would be for people to have the confidence to stand up and say "the system doesn't work and we can change it with our own hands"
There are people who, despite their experiences and intelligence and kind-heartedness, they sincerely are lost right now in this time. They do not know; they did not realize. A little bit of patience to get everyone up to speed is necessary, even on the part of those with… I’ve heard people say, ‘It’s not up to black people to help others get up to speed.’ It might not be, but I’m going to try that anyway because it’s necessary. - Steve Gordon

There are no easy answers right now. No easy answers to the pandemic, no easy answers to the massive amount of lost jobs or to ending centuries or racist systems, but as Creative Mornings Omaha’s “mom,” if you will, I challenge there are easy answers to showing kindness, compassion and empathy. Creatives seem uniquely built for that. - Kim Sellmeyer
It’s important that we remember, as a community, that we’re still going home. We’re still headed to that better place where we all accept each other, where we all value each other, where we don’t have to be afraid of the things that make us different. And while we might not have that reality today, in the form that we want it, that doesn’t mean we can stop hoping. Herbie Thompson
Keeping silent just to save face does absolutely nothing!
While I'm grateful to have projects that speak directly to representation and inclusion, a lot of the times my impact is outside of that work. Whether it is the topic or not, I approach all projects with the same purpose of infusing diversity and representation into the work that I do.
As a Black woman working in the [design and creative] field, I face a lot of adversity.
It was clear to me that I needed to get to know my true unique voice as a creative. Spend some time with her.
My work has a spirit to it, a character, and a charm that brings smiles to people's faces.
We all have a responsibility to tell the truth about who we are as a nation. When we do that, we begin to relate to one another better, we see our humanity in each other.
Purposeful collective action can change our nation and the world.
We have a social responsibility to preserve these places to never forget who we are.
I didn't want to be a designer that created more "stuff" in the world I wanted to be a designer that could help change the world
How design for me was about telling the narrative of tomorrow but making it tangible and physical in the now
My whole work is about tooling up for radical change
The place where [you live] and the people that live there really matter. [You] can design a future that [you] can be proud of and is healthy for everyone to live in.
I really don't even care about race, but I have to because I have to constantly armor these children over and over and over when they encounter ignorance.
On a real basic level, humans just want to be loved.
Other communities need to stomp out hatred. Because is not on us anymore, to build our self-esteem so high, just so we can walk down the street and tolerate hatred.
These kids. The weight that they carry with them is so heavy, that if they did have that extra lift up, they would sky-rocket.
Everybody needs to help somebody up. We all have to do that.
It's not the momentum of the fall that allows us to rise, it's really when people help you on that way up.
