Around the web (week of 25 March) (feat. photos from Antelope Valley)

Reading

When I joined my high school’s environmental club, I was the only black kid at most meetings, and usually the only person of color. The club consisted of a group of white students talking about their camping trips. I knew that I would never fit in. It was difficult to look like their token and attend their meetings, but I kept going because I wanted to change that.

National borders are human creations, of course, and insects and fungal diseases don’t abide by them. So even if an entire country could eradicate the fall armyworm, it would probably invade from a neighboring country all over again.

Listening

  • Rahul Sharma on the Santoor. I heard Rahul Sharma in concert with Zakir Hussain a while back at Royce Hall, and my love for both is strong as ever.
