Winter Plan: Women's Round Table


In December I plan to hold a sort of women’s conference / discussion round table to bring together various female artists & creators from Los Angeles and surrounding cities to discuss topics of artistry, marketing-branding, social media, relationships & sexism, other -isms. With this, I want to…

“We have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit because what was native has been stolen from us, The Love of Black Women for each other. But we can practice being gentle with each other by being gentle with that piece of ourselves that is hardest to hold, by giving more to the brave, bruised girlchild within each of us, by expecting a little less from her gargnatuan efforts to excel. We can love her in the light as well as the darkness, quiet her frenzy toward perfection and encourage her attentions toward fulfillment…As we arm ourselves with ourselves and each other, we can stand toe to toe inside the rigorous loving and begin to speak the impossible - to one another. The first step toward genuine change. Eventually, if we speak the the Truth to each other, it will become unavoidable to ourselves”
Audre Lorde  (via ourspaceislove)

BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.



Prison Culture » Transformative Justice

I talk a lot about the concepts of transformative justice and community accountability on this blog. As such, I thought that it would be a good idea to create a page that focuses on both of these ideas and also shares some resources that I have found useful in developing my analysis over the years. This is a work in progress so I expect that this page will continue to evolve.

I so enjoy all of you and all of yesterday. Jesus flossin on y’all.
