In #Oakland marching tonight alongside powerful women and allies and my soul sister @jenniepearlyoga. I'm grateful for the inspirational movers and shakers in my life who open us toward a more inclusive, compassionate and intersectional world.

#internationalwomensday ~Filmmaker Sara Gomez~ "Wondering why her documentary works ever vanished from the silver screen after her fictional maiden work of 1974, ¨De cierta manera¨ (One Way or Another), hit Cuban theaters in 1977, the attendees repeatedly referred to Sarita as the visionary she always was. By rekindling old memories of her, the symposium made the point of revisiting her unique talent to grasp, document and, above all, question, the Cuban reality of the 60s, at a time when the whole country was embracing a new social model, while still struggling with old racial and gender prejudices. The validity of Gomez´s cinematic approach for Cuba – and the world at large- today may be an essential outcome of the colloquium. In the 60s many of her chronological peers might had failed to understand that, through her incisive documentaries, Sara Gomez was speaking volumes when she delved into the logical contradictions between desire and reality, change and tradition, slogans and daily life. Oddly enough, however, her films did not made a splash among the filmmaking community of the time, but rather left their lasting imprint in the ranks of playwrights, according to an old friend and former colleague of Sara Gomez’s. Writer Inés María Martiatu recalled during the meeting how De cierta manera opened the doors of Cuban theatres to pieces that also dealt with topics such as social exclusion, male chauvinism and racism, such as Andoba, by the late Alberto Pedro."

I'm still standing with you, Standing Rock. I'll fight that cruel man who is an Outrageous monster and his greedy corporate cronies.

Dance is always a revolutionary action. Dance your heart out sister!
