I just wanted to thank everyone who came out tonight to MIT. It could not have come at a better time. This was the first time I'd read actual chapters--as opposed to prep work--out loud. I didn't want to say this but it made me really emotional. Working in the voices of slaves, at least writing, has been sort of abstract to me. I definitely feel it. But reading it in front of people tonight was wholly different. The thing came alive.
