brohogany 'ironically, to really be a #politicallyconscious person, you have to be really #hopeful. i do feel really hopeful all the time. i’m a playwright and people say: ‘why do you write #tragedies?’ but it’s in the naming of the #wound that the possibility for the #curing happens. it’s the very act of #identifying that opens up the possibility for #change. hope is that you’re going through that hard place, [that] you’re #recognizing the #obstacles. by that #recognition, which can really #hurt, there is a possibility for #transformation.' #cherriemoraga #thisbridgecalledmyback #imaread #feministanthology #womenofcolor #sisterhood #thirdwavefeminism #menneedfeminismtoo #shereads #veryblack #veryblackreading #houseofbaldwin #houseofjillandre 16h

brohogany one of the fiercest things eye ever learned was to #read. *cue '#imaread' x @zebrakatz* :) for real tho. eye remember when my grandpa told me a sad old adage that broke my little/big heart, eye think eye was 5 or 6. he said, 'grandson make sure you always read and ask questions. read everything. it's a sad saying that if you wanna keep something from a #blackman then put it in a book ... money included.' eye remember that. didn't even know how much of an impact it would have on/in my journey and eye have challenged this notion ever since. #literacy is an important topic and who has (had) access + support. reading is just the beginning because w reading comes awareness and then thinking. anyone who knows me knows that eye will highlight the hell out of a book/magazine/article/newspaper/etc. :) so yeah, this summer @justin__fulton + yours truly is introducing #veryblackreading. so, pls hashtag #veryblack + #veryblackreading with what you are reading. will be dope to see what you all are reading <3 eye feel like eye got all the homies (re)reading '#allaboutlove' x #bellhooks. feel free to join in :) you've been invited <3 xoxo
