My name is Christin Washington and I am an Amherst College alum. I was raised in Brooklyn, New York, and while at Amherst, I was a Black Studies and Political Science double major. Hence my Five College Digital Humanities project and Black Studies senior thesis, Dare to Remember: A Digital Memorial of Black Brooklyn. In my free time, I’m reading, scrolling away on social media, reading some more, or listening to music. Yes, I am that person with gospel and gangsta rap on the same playlist, haha!
