letter from sistergirl iresha,

I started a black women's writer collective earlier this summer called "Ntozake Shange School of Literary Thought" (named after the author Ntozake Shange "She who walks with Lions/has her own") and we spent most of the summer reading a lot of great texts by Black feminist authors and writing through various exercises. One of the woman suggested that we write our Yoni )meaning our Vaginas) Narratives (think Vagina Monologues, but with more color!) and we compiled them into a pamphlet. We have hard copies with a pretty lilac color as well…Please circulate and pass along!!!
