Yaya Sabater, The Activist

Pursuing a B.A. with a double major in Geography & Urban studies and Africology & African American studies, it is important for me to find the connections between my Black studies and Geographical studies. This overall goal just happened to align with what we were targeting in this class this semester, the theme of public space and visibility. Being a visual artist, I am trying to change the way I look at writing and see it also as a form of self expression, more than just words on a page. Recognizing that the author dies when a work of writing is produced, such as any form of art, I hope that I was able to justly reflect my own beliefs and values and that you are able to recognize the passion behind the text on the paper.
