Words to Live By

"Black women are programmed to define ourselves within this male attention and to compete with each other for it rather than to recognize and move upon our common interests."-Audre Lorde


  1. Dayum! Those are some powerful words... and true. But what does she propose is the solution for that? lol. I wanna hear the rest of that statement!

  2. Lourde's solution is to celebrate our differences. She is always stressing differences. And our difference will heal us, connect us, and make us want to unite for the cause. Acknowledging difference is what defnes you.

  3. I love the name Lourdes said I was stealing it after Madonna named her kid such.

    Powerful quote
