Taylor Lindholm-McPherson is from Henrietta, NY, just a few minutes away from Rochester. He is interested in the History of Asian societies and their impacts on other parts of the world, particularly in the intersection of society, power and oppression. He has attended school and completed his BA at SUNY Geneseo. He hopes to take his understanding of the relationship of power and prisons within the United States to better challenge institutionalized systems of racial imprisonment across the world by providing first and foremost accurate and inclusive history, especially in regard to those silenced from normative narratives. Personal heroes include Mohandas K. Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., and Ella Baker
