Summer Don't Stop

So it is officially September. School supplies and new crushes are in order. But in the mind of at least one crazy QBG (me) summer shall never end! Feel free to partake in the Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind (www.blackfeministmind.wordpress.com) and especially check out piping hot new interactive music-filled poetic podcast based on Sapphires Meditations on the rainbow streaming and downloadable here: http://brokenbeautiful.wordpress.com/files/2009/09/rainbow-podcast.mp3

And since we know you want to heat it up with your fabulous self...please do be at the two hottest events of the fall.

1. Gonna say it one more time...the Queerky Black Girl CookOut on Sunday Sept 6th at Piedmont Park in ATL GA!


Don't miss the Queer Renaissance Launch, UNTIL (sexy serious black woman centered short film) screening, Multi-Media Workshop supporting SUPERBASH in honor of QBG Julia Wallace's thirstiest 30th Birthday!!!!

And just like the summer isn't stopping yet, neither is the black feminist heritage fueled critique. Last week so many of you jumped into the conversation about whether and why you are a black feminist....this week let's talk about privilege:

“The major source of difficulty in our political work is that we are not just trying to fight oppression on one front or even two, but instead to address a whole range of oppressions. We do not have racial, sexual, heterosexual or class privilege to rely upon, nor do we have even the minimal access to resources and power that groups who possess any one of these types of privilege have.” Combahee River Collective Statement 1977

What privileges do you have? What privileges are you being denied?
Let's talk about it!!!!
