Brown is nol unrque. tl is part of o larger collective of Htgher-Ed
institutions thot asserts ilself in and displaces 1communities - namely
communities of color. I am so glad Serviu
1s G brlngs ijhis lo light in his
pointed anoly1icol piece. NeocotoniaJ Provrdenc ·e.

(

I believe it is o necessary reod and should be c irc ula1ed widely

among 1he Brown community.
As ,a scholar who is,a Block woman . , initio11yhad con ,1entionswith
the pieoe ~ not far its conf ent. but because i fel1 l•arge1ed for even
~ being atfiliaied wiih Brown. So, like most people would, I deHec1ed
~ my guill.

t

I am noi proud ,of this. but I took personal offense 1o ·servius'
cri1iques ond neglected lo ·fully acknowledge the structural issues
he highlig"lhtsin th is piece . It was upon reading Neoc ,o1onial'
Providence for a second time om
ihe urging , of a co-researaher
that I was able to begin the proe,e~ of reconciling my Brown
privilege with my margrnol iled identities.
Here's a word of advice .if you find yourself getttng all in your
feeltngs and defensive ,rike I did:

Despite your social/cri tical consciousness. advocacy and activis-m
~ 0 1t B:rown, you ore comp 'licit in main1oining neocolonial
, Provjde nce.

Don1'1 deny tho,I. So if ~rou,rue iruly l''bou ttt 'bout it." dedicate your
time here· to dlm1Qn11ing
the mos1er's house with 1he mos1,er's tools.
~ Interpret that os you wilt That's how I choose to , mote up for being
~ compficit.


Well. that's me ihinl<:ingou1 loud. Bravo to the author for \M'iting
such a lhooghl-provol<ing piece.
