Say It, Sister! - Quotes by Women of African Descent

"But you see now baby, whether you have a ph.d., d.d. or no d, we're in this bag together. And whether you are from Morehouse or Nohouse, we're still in this bag together."

-- Fannie Lou Hamer

A novel I'd like to see published

Posted by Gail Nyoka on August 8, 2014 at 8:47am 0 Comments

I am many things: among them a writer.  I have written a young-adult novel which I have provisionally named Star's Reflection.  It is a story based partly in ancient Egypt and partly in the present day.  Although this is not a major part of the book, two characters face racist teachers in their school.  I was told by a white publisher, "this does not happen."  

In spite of having previously published a book that was critically acclaimed, I have not been able to find a…

She crazy love him now and then

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
