The global chain of movements driven organically by the people give me hope. As many systematic, institutional and legal structures thwart any attempts of equality, we shall overcome.

I am not pigmentally challenged

I bleed in color

Dream vivid dreams

And leap from slumber

Singing songs that make the rainbow

Quiver at dusk

 

We laugh in yellow

I will be completely honest in saying that this is one of the hardest things I’ve had to write — mainly because I know that, as my mother, you are my biggest supporter and encourager. I can always count on you to be my number one fan — except when it comes to my natural curls.

The Wake
Sitting on stairs

Feminism is the gritty, speckled fibers

Of the Brown and Black soil,

In which I firmly plant the soles of my feet.

Her garden cultivates my self-love and inner peace,

"A Black face in a white place"

The racism plaguing Mizzou seems very far away, doesn’t it? I mean, it’s in the South. Those things just happen there, right? Wrong. Very wrong.
