I work as an activist, artist, and teacher in Minneapolis. Right now I am teaching children, many of whom are 1st and 2nd generation West African immigrants, to code and program their own video games using Scratch from MIT Media Lab. In this city the race and class divides are (like everywhere else) growing all the time, and this is my attempt at helping to bring more people up to speed with technology and take a stand against marginalization. — bseverns
