The richest girl in town.
Whenever a conscious Black woman raises her voice on issues central to her existence, somebody is going to call her strident, because they don't want to hear about it, nor us. I refuse to be silenced and I refuse to be trivialized, even if I do not say what I have to say perfectly. -- Audre Lorde

I love Lorde.

Have you read "Zami?" That book changed my life. I read it when I was 19.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to repost. This is a meme I wouldn't mind seeing passed around.
