1. Infrastructures of Opportunity: Poverty, Writing, & Boo →

    roxanegay:

    This all got me thinking about Behind the Beautiful Forevers. I was wary as I read the book because all too often, we see the stories of people of color mediated through white writers. We see the stories of the poor mediated through the lens of privilege. 

    Yes. Yes. Yes. These stories need to be told, but who is telling them? And who should be?
