    I beez on the gram…beez beez on the gram. I never knew the meaning of that song, but perhaps it was intended to foster remixes like so. No? Okay, either way follow Token In America on Instagram.

    It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.

    Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.

    The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of  many children playing at the site instead of attending school.

    When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.

    Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.

    Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.

    There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.

    Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.

    Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.

    One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.

Filmed a non narrative short today on a whim. Inspired by my surroundings, I needed a way to keep it without compromising the space. Will post tomorrow for the first TIA Films!
If I had no fear…

    TIA is a little MIA until 2014 because…. I’m in Appalachia!!!

    Yes, I’m spending the holidays in the thick of the Appalachian mountains of Georgia with my family, and we’ll be ringing in the New Year with the deers. As usual, we’re the token black family in the mountains…at least in our neck of the woods.

    I’m really excited to see 2014, and I hope the projects in store for January are an indicator of the rest of the year. What are your plans for the New Year? Tell me the lessons that you learned and how you plan to implement them into your life!

    Be safe, be love, and be free. See you in 2014!

    tokeninamerica:

    Hey y’all…so I’m digging the social media avenues for Token In America and would be so stoked if y’all found me on some of my favorite channels and sites:

    Goodreads (Great to keep track of what I’m reading, and share book suggestions and such! So be my friend!)
    YouTube (Obviously, it’s where I post the TIA Talks and so much more, so definitely Subscribe!)
    Twitter (Don’t be afraid to follow lovelies..I bring much hilarity in less than 140 characters)
    Google+ (While I’m still utterly bereft of skill in managing this page, you can check it out anyway and share stuff with me there)

    I look forward to keeping in touch with y’all in more ways then one…don’t hesitate to ask me questions, speak your mind, or just tell me you love me because I love you…truth.
