“What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence.” -Audre Lorde The words Black people use to make tangible and share in awe at, our collective experience, struggle, and resilience, are not often afforded the time needed to truly process their significance.
Beautifully written and painful to read. The sheer depth and breadth of truth, of protest, of power, in these words - just gut wrenching.
Really incredible piece. And thank you for talking and talking and talking and talking in service of all of us. Your Magic is undeniable. 🙌🏾🙌🏾
