This tribe called ‘Women of Color’ is not an ethnicity. It is one of the inventions of solidarity, an alliance, a political necessity that is not the given name of every female with dark skin and a colonized tongue, but rather a choice about how to resist and with whom.

Hurt people hurt people. That’s how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future.

The Magical man who taught us how to survive on sweet potatoes when running away from orphanages, taught us to grow our own and find the beauty in and harmony with nature, turned down major league offers and taught us commitment, taught us hard work, nourished us with love and taught us how to fish and feed ourselves. Rest in peace grandpa,  see you out in the fields, on the water and in the kitchen. You’re our lighthouse …we’ll keep shining because of you! BEEP BEEP View high resolution
