Past a chalkboard that says, “Come inside to read a good book,” on one side and “Don’t be an asshole!” on the other, you come across a tattered SEPTA Union Strike poster from the early twentieth century, preserved underneath an equally withered-away lamination. A few cautious inches deep inside of this surreal time machine, a pillar manages to stand from the 1890s home of an anarchist feminist writer and speaker who lived near Drexel University.
Dejando atrás una pizarra en la que se lee a un lado “Entre y lea un buen libro” y “¡No sea estúpido!” en el otro, me encuentro con un poster viejo y andrajoso de una huelga convocada por el sindicato de la SEPTA a principios del siglo pasado, conservado gracias a un laminado igualmente marchito.

Since the election, more than half of teachers have seen an increase in uncivil political discourse in their schools or classrooms, and more than one-third report having observed an increase in anti-Muslim or anti-immigrant sentiment.
