100 Great Black Women Speak

I have always written. Even when not writing, I am thinking about writing!

To paraphrase George Orwell, I could say ‘I want to expose a lie ‘, but I want to tell my truth.

The written word has power, vulnerability, grace, horror, truth, lies, understanding, memories to come and memories disturbed by our imagination. 

I write because I have to. To say it’s everything is extreme, yet it is everything.

Without writing there is no meaning to my world.

Without writing I would not understand myself; I would not be able to find my place.
