I’ve been anticipating reading this article by fellow Alabama native and one of my favorite people, @ImaniPerry. This is a #MUSTREADβ€”a #beautiful #read. Here, in #LetterfromAlabama: As The South Goes, So Does the Nationβ€”History Haunts, but Alabama Changes, Dr. Perry walks through Alabama present and the history with truth, hope and love... (currently available onlineβ€”google title.)

Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney in all of her womanist wisdom breaks down the meaning of #Womanism πŸ’œ (Image: @lavenderbythebay) .
.
Womanism is black women’s feminism; it is also more. Womanism is richer, thicker, deeper than feminism, as Alice Walker who crafted the term writes; it is purple to the lavender of feminism.

Womanism is always intersectional, always engages the inseparable matrixes of gender and race and other markers of embodiment like sexual orientation, gender identity and performance, ability and mobility along with class and economic concerns.

Womanist readings are unflinchingly honest, brutal even, particularly when addressing issues of gender, ethnicity and power.

#MorningAffirmation: β€œIf a human being dares to be bigger than the condition into which she or he is born, it means so can YOU.” You are not defined by the boxes that people try to place you in. You are not defined by the words that people put on you. What defines you is your willingness to dream. What defines you is when you dare to challenge others who say β€œyou can’t” and respond with β€œYes, I can.” Don’t allow others to place boundaries and limitations on your life. The possibilities within you are infinite. Expand to the furthest reaches of your potential.
Thank you Maya for your endless wisdom, may your powerful legacy and words live on in us forever.

Palestinian nurse Razan al-Najjar was shot in the chest and killed by Israeli snipers today in the besieged Gaza Strip as she was providing medical aid to injured protesters. Killing medics is a war crime under the Geneva Convention. This is one amongst many war crimes committed by the Israeli government against the Palestinian people with impunity. We cannot be silent in the face of such atrocities. Long live the people of Palestine.
