we stan a queen

Happening in the World: After a dinner between President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires, the two leaders have announced a 90 day ceasefire over the trade dispute that has rattled economic growth. The truce buys time for both countries to decide on a verdict concerning Beijing’s aggressiveness on the U.S.’s technological dominance.

Happening in the US: The New York Time’s has written a lengthy exposé on the K-12 school in Louisiana called the T.M. Landry School that became viral last year for posting its highly emotional and enthusiastic videos of their predominantly African American students getting accepted to elite universities. The T.M. Landry school, which is not an accredited school and the owners are not currently certified teachers, has been exposed for abusing the students, not teaching them, and falsifying transcripts and scores.

Happening in NYC: New York City will be erecting a statue of the first black Congresswoman in the United States, Shirley Chisholm, in Prospect Park. Chisholm is also the first woman to receive the Democratic vote to run for President, and passed away in 2005 at age 80. The statue is a part of NYC’s goal to “toss out symbols of hate.”

Happening on Campus: There will be a film screening of “ReGeneration” followed by a discussion at 1201 International Affairs Building from 6 to 7 PM.
