Say It, Sister! - Quotes by Women of African Descent (Updated daily)

"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."

-- Dr. Mae Jemison

Dr. Mae Carol Jemison is an American physician and NASA astronaut. She became the first African American woman to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on September 12, 1992.

Crazy Love

Posted by Carolyn Walker on July 3, 2014 at 9:03pm 0 Comments

Her crazy love is in and out

She plays him just like a bounce-a-bout

And rate him more than other men



Crazy love can be so bad

He swears that she is really mad:

To wine and dine,

And be so kind

Then makes him drink her bitter vine



She has him… Continue

I am me connect to that plan upon this land

There will never be another

You can only be my brother

Can't you see! He or she is not me

Leading to conception, He made it His intention

Pursued it as a mission, to shape this unique me



The free me, forgive me

Release me, to be me

The "real me" can never die

You will see her… Continue
