Processing race: navigating social media activism as a NBPOC

Conceptualizing race and racism inherently creates a set of paradoxes. It asks us to recognize that racism impacts everyone, but that it impacts everyone differently; it asks us to disassociate from our own racial identity/ies to see the human in each other, but to also celebrate the individuality in our human experiences; it both unites and divides us, because the problem is divisive but the solution is unity.

Q&A with @lonelycovidtiger: Jeongmin ‘JM’ Cho ’21

Jeongmin “JM” Cho ’21, the student behind the Instagram account @lonelycovidtiger, opens up about documenting campus life amid COVID-19. “I hope we will be looking back and be able to appreciate the things that we may have otherwise taken for granted — simple things like being able to be with one another, hug your friends, and express appreciation.”

In conversation with Trenton seniors: The importance of music and the arts

As we search for ways to keep ourselves entertained while sequestered within our homes, we have become increasingly dependent on art. However, not everyone can easily engage with the arts, as participation demands a high premium, particularly for the performing arts, such as classical music and ballet. For Trenton Youth Orchestra students, Princeton’s closure means a loss of both music and a vibrant community. Their reflections remind us of the importance of the arts, particularly during trying times.

Memes and mobilization

In light of being prematurely sent home due to the coronavirus, never have I seen such complex, crafty, and community-minded memes be published at this quick of a pace. In memes and advocacy, I see conduits for empathy, for community building, and ways to make people feel better, in variant but parallel methods.

Tigers and TikTok

The world we live in is undoubtedly changing in various facets day by day, and how we socialize and connect with our communities is no exception. For at least some Princeton students, TikTok is taking on an increasingly prominent part of their social lives as our campus community is spread out across the world.

The art of socializing

The quarantine has taught us many, many things. Like working from home isn’t as cool as it seems. Or that Animal Crossing is apparently still a thing. It has also taught us that we are people that need each other. And that while this situation is far from ideal, the fact that we still have access to one another is something to be grateful for.
