"For me, my art is my activism and storytelling is my activism, so that’s what I’m going to continue to do, and also encourage people to define that for themselves and also remember throughout this, this is not a sprint — it’s a marathon. I think we have to get back to the idea that the first act of resistance is self-care." ~Angie Thomas in "Amandla Stenberg And Angie Thomas On 'The Hate U Give', Code-Switching, And Using Art As Activism"
