Powerful Prose
by Miranda Hazim

Oakland’s Santa Fe Park was vandalized in June 2020. Hate and racists words defaced park structures, slamming its community with a reminder of the racism prevalent in Topeka today. SOMOS KS, a youth powered social service, media and marketing collective founded by Luis Estrada joined voices with Huascar Medina, Kansas Poet Laureate, on Saturday, June 13 in the park to listen to the words of Medina and raise community voices and pride,

“speaking out against racism and Hate in OUR Capital City.”

If words were going to linger in Santa Fe Park, they would be ones of inclusion and diversity.
