In celebration of International Women’s Day, we would like to honor Zora Neal Hurston. As an author, anthropologist, filmmaker, and woman of color, Hurston has taught us how to fight for our dreams, despite the adversities that we may face. “If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” -Zora Neal Hurston •

On February 23, 1954, the US administered the first polio vaccinations to children. In an interview with Forbes, author Pat Cadigan says, “I'm old enough to remember when the polio vaccine was still new. Also, it hadn't been that long since most people who caught pneumonia died from it. These medical breakthroughs were practically miracles.” See link for full article: https://www.forbes.com/2007/10/13/pat-cadigan-prediction-tech-future07-cx_1015cadigan.html
