Angelina Weld Grimke - Poems by the Famous Poet - All Poetry
To write is to create something that will have its own life, Audre Lorde thought. A writer needs to hold her nerve, conquer her fears and speak out. She was 58 when she died in November
As a romantic sap, I watch as many love stories as I can get my hands on. And while I try to diversify my movie viewing here and there, I always find comfort in my Black romance movies. The representation of Black love is important, and society needs to see the vast variety of our love narratives as frequently as they can. Like all people, we love in every form and expression, and something radical happens when we see our stories onscreen drenched in rich, melanin, perspective. Other movies on the list are more joyful, showing characters reveling in their feelings for each other.
