The world is still in the middle of a pandemic, and since March of this year, most of us in the U.S. have been asked to stay home in order to keep ourselves and our fellow citizens safe. I had successfully quarantined for nearly two and half months, cooking 100% of my meals and venturing out for "essentials" only, but in May when I heard about Breonna Taylor and understood why she was indeed not “safer at home,” I couldn’t for the life of me continue to stay in mine. For the first time ever, I boarded a plane to another state to attend a protest where I learned first-hand what happened to Breonna Taylor and how the on-going events that lie in the wake of her death hold the intersectionality of police accountability, patriotism, feminism and gentrification.
