Hi my name is Tryakel Anderson and I am a junior at the University of Washington. For my African American studies class I had to attend this event and I am very appreciative of this requirement. This event was very intriguing and inspirational for me. Being that I consider myself a feminist and I am also a musician (drums and clarinet) it was very interesting to attend a festival that commemorated those two things. Although there were many, the most intriguing aspect was the panel of women of color. They were women of multiple ethnicities who spoke to the audience about systematic change and media justice. I like that people were able to ask them questions about their work and that they advocated for women empowerment and solidarity.
