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

Beware:

All too often,
We say
What we hear others say.
We think
What we're told that we think.
We see
What we're permitted to see.
Worse!
We see what we're told that we see.

Octavia E. Butler (1947-2006), from "Parable of the Talents."

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…
