Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.

I want to believe this. Yet, I am afraid. And I move forward in great fear. I do. I must. Making the decision to create this project has been scary AF. Initially, I was like who the F#%?! am I to be an expert on being an black woman? But then I thought... why not? I took ownership of my experience and said let’s GO girl! And I did just that. #blackwomanology #art #theatre #actress #blackwomen #hollywood #losangeles #mashadowell #audrelorde #favored

"There are many kinds of power, used and unused, acknowledged or otherwise. The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling. In order to perpetuate itself, every oppression must corrupt or distort those various sources of power within the culture of the oppressed that can provide energy for change." –Audre Lorde, from “Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power”

As black womyn, we must work hard to preserve our peace, energy and dreams. When you fly, they tell you that if the oxygen masks drop to put yours on first, before you help others. Let us take these instructions into our daily lives and practice caring for ourselves, first...because after all, we are the only ones who will.

On this episode of @nprcodeswitch , they share the serious health effects, including early death rates, as a result of “prolonged exposure to the indignities of discrimination” the “toll of working harder to get equal pay and respect, followed around a store, and stopped by police. Those experiences create chronic stress that deteriorate the body over time.” They term this experience “weathering”- surviving/high effort coping as the body is being eroded by its environment. This is true for Black people of all income levels. Most startling and relatable was how practiced we are at downgrading/hiding our pain combined with doctors who aren’t black not believing in Black pain or in their Black patients, leading to misdiagnosis and lack of vital treatment. Please take a listen 👆🏾and let this be sign of our very real need for personal boundaries, time for stillness, time for JOY🎉, deep connections with people who truly hear you, see you, and appreciate you for you, and whatever else you need to feel free and at peace. You are valuable and worthy of self-care and to walk that path toward self-love. We are healing, and it is glorious ✨

True wisdom! So thankful I got introduced to Audre Lorde’s writings years ago. #truth #wisdom #audrelorde #bethelight #bethefire ❤️✊🏽🌟🔥
It is learning how to stand alone, unpopular and sometimes reviled, and how to make common cause with those other identified as outside the structures, in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish. 
It is learning how to take our differences and make the strengths. For the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house- Audre Lorde powerful words from Sister Outsider -educate yourself on this woman’s words of wisdom 🤲🏽🤲🏽🤲🏽 #audrelorde #feminist #perserverance #standalone #standstrong #truth

Following on from our last post, here is a peek inside our latest book purchase, 'Little Leaders' by @vashtiharrison. I will note that it is rooted in American Black History, as it would be easy to think that it may have been more global. Thoughtfully written and executed, with lots to talk about with your own little leader!✊🏾☄️💗

if you're a white feminist who's double tapped a bunch of MLK posts today but also you've secretly rolled your eyes at calls for intersectional feminism or taken it personally when women of color say your work isn't representative of their experience, know that what Dr. King was working against was the systemic institutional forms of racism that kept people of color from sharing their voice the ways that have always been available to you and the generations before you through fair voting laws and access to education and safe housing. To honor his work is to honor that our country and its western feminist movement still has not fixed the damage done to generations of families who were denied a voice. If you're ever told you're not being intersectional or you're not sure what that means, just try listening and making room for a voice other than your own. The quote in this pic is from Audre Lorde, a QPOC, who's writings have been repeatedly excluded from the canons of 2nd wave feminism. Reading Lorde changed my life at 22 and could have impacted so many more if her voice was held up as was Steinem, de Beauvoir, and Firestone. #mlk #martinlutherkingjr #audrelorde #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality

Spent most of the day editing images for @blackfandb, lip syncing, and reading and rereading “Poetry Is Not a Luxury” by Audre Lorde. Thinking about how dangerous and yet vital self-expression can be depending upon the shape and color of the body you inhabit. And there is no being unafraid. But there is Courage then after that, Freedom. And once you know the taste of it perhaps it gets easier and easier to do and be in spite of it all. .

On this MLK day, honoring all those who’ve had the courage to rise up & speak truth to power — especially in recent months. We are almost at the anniversary of the woman’s march. Amazing what has happened in a year. I went back to the feminist pioneer Audre Lorde’s “The Uses of the Erotic.” When you have a few minutes, sit down to read and savor — let her poetic & prophetic words of how to live life to its fullest take root. Link in my profile. .

A little catch up from yesterday’s #letteringfeminism
A few people that should be celebrated for their commitment to love and justice today alongside Martin Luther King Jr.

We are history weather we actively involve ourselves or not. I urge each one of you to examine how you can use whoever you are in the service of what you say you believe. -Audre Lorde

Coretta Scott King was an American author, activist, civil rights leader. Coretta Scott King helped lead the Civil Rights Movement along side MLK Jr. She was a great supporter of LGBT rights and the women’s movement.
