About joanniemercedes

Lazy. Lover. Recovering nihilist. As a librarian I am concerned with the role of public libraries as complicit agents of structural racism. As a person I am interested in de-stigmatizing everything human, talking racism to death, dabbling in american history, favoring german expressionism; and excelling at slacking.
