...STOP; a voice in my head is reminding
me that I keep forgetting to
include the ferociousFrances Ellen
Watkins Harperwhen mentioning Truth
She was their contemporary, just as bold
and accomplished as them and deserves to be mentioned.
One of the things I LOVE about Black
American history is that NONE of the
first "written books" by Blacks in
this country were written by educated
free blacks, but by escaped slaves.
The actual marrow.
Being that I have no formal education,
AND as a detractor put it when I won
Sweden's Kavinna-Kavinna Prize..."just a
social climbing palace whore who reinvented herself as Dorothy Parker"....
I feel that it's those [end of slavery blacks] who are the ones guiding my light.
I DID deserve that award and the rise
of BARACK OBAMA proves that change really
is the Window that's open right now---the
ACADEMICS and the ESTABLISHED RULING
PEDESTALS are shakey and they're being usurped by us Paupers right now.
In her way, Michelle Obama, is a pauper, too.
**SORRY I WENT OFF TOPIC.
