transformation, love of justice and action, and continued connection to my ancestors and my country. All this and more manifested in this physical space which also holds my spiritual soul.

In this lifetime, my body is a part of a continuum of unknown and known Black women who lived at the intersections of race, gender, class, sexual orientation. These women prayed for, meditated for, fought for, died for peace, love, justice, and equality for all. I literally and metaphorically stand on their shoulders knowing that I have a responsibility to take it to the next level for my known and unknown (blood and spirit) descendants. My body, my vehicle to give voice, to agitate, to rail against all the systems of oppression that end in "ism", and those that don't; systems spawned by colonization, imperialist, neocolonial and transnational exploitation and the every day, in my backyard, in my face micro-aggressions that everyone seems to be so danm ok about.
