Dr. Georgina Ramsay publishes article with an international anthropology blog
Last month I stepped into a different Starbucks in Philadelphia, only
four blocks over from the now-infamous site of the arrest incident, with
Robert. It had been his choice to go to the Starbucks to get some
coffee and to talk in more depth about his life than we could on the
surrounding street, which is where we usually meet and talk in between
the gentle rumble of Robert asking people who pass, “Spare some change?”
Making conversation somewhat loudly in the otherwise quiet café as we
finished preparing our coffee, I felt the glances of other patrons glide
over us in that looking-but-not-looking way that people do. - an excerpt from the article. To read the full article on Allegra Lab click here.
