Herstory Continues

HERSTORY

I carry it on my back: BLACK HISTORY – I love it like it’s my biological baby.
You know how doting mothers can be, so lets talk about a few historical ladies.

Their stories are not new nor should we ever slip up and forget;
Therefore I’m yielding 7 quotes per each contributor in her designated sect.

Each quote blends into the next, while making a bold and solitary statement.
I thank God for the assests of HERSTORY & the way each woman pounded the pavement:

Still Diggin’ SOJOURNER TRUTH
American Evangelist and Abolitionist and social reformer. 1797-1883

a) If women want any rights more than they’s got, why don’t they just take them, and not be talking about it. b) If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, then these (gathered here) together ought to be able to turn it back and get it right side up again. c) Religion without humanity is very poor human stuff. d) Truth is powerful and it prevails. e) I am glad to see that men are getting their rights, but I want women to get theirs, and while the water is stirring I will step into the pool. f) We do as much, we eat as much, we want as much. g) [That little man in black says] woman can’t have as much rights as man because Christ wasn’t a woman. Where did your Christ come from? . . . From God and a woman. Man had nothing to do with Him.

Sojourner had spunk. Right?

Still Diggin’ MADAM CJ WALKER
Founded & ran the Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company from 1906-1919

a) …I want to say to every Negro woman present, don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them! b) There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it, for if I have accomplished anything in life it is because I have been willing to work hard. c) I got myself a start by giving myself a start. d) I am not satisfied in making money for myself. I endeavour to provide employment for hundreds of the women of my race. e) Perseverance is my motto. f) I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations….I have built my own factory on my own ground. g) I am not ashamed of my past. I am not ashamed of my humble beginning.

Madam CJ Walker was anything but a sideline talker. I’m still inspired, still imPRESSed and currently flat ironing. ♥

Still Diggin’ ZORA NEAL HURSTON
A literary of the Harlem Renaissance – She spoke Harlemese 1920-1950

a) Anybody depending on somebody else’s god – is depending on a fox not to eat chickens; b) But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem; c) A thing is mighty big when time and distance cannot shrink it; d) I did not just fall in love. I made a parachute jump; e) It costs you something to do good; f) If you want that good feeling that comes from doing things for other folks then you have to pay for it in abuse and misunderstanding. g) It would be against all nature for all the Negroes to be either at the bottom, top, or in between. We will go where the internal drive carries us like everybody else. It is up to the individual.

Zora was Literally RIGHT ON – thus I can’t help but continue to WRITE ON. Right on?

To the average eye, it may seem as if I’m doing a bit of doting;
To the more skilled eye, I’m merely learning, growing and doling.

How do you see her?

LET’S TALK ABOUT You, Me and Lil Ol’ AOC!
Don’t be fooled by her height – for she is a beast!

Be warmed by her youthful Pelosi-like heat:

.

Yes-Yes! She’s doing her thing; for the people she slays!
70% of Americans are all ears at what she has to say…

LET’S TALK ABOUT coffee; regardless of where you take it – in your mouth or in your butt
I’d like to know your thoughts on the 2020 Presidential run-flirt by Starbucks Schultz?

The NY Times isn’t feeling him; he’s running as an Independent candidate.
Why do that and not run as a Democrat, asked Bloomberg of Schultz’s race.

LET’S TALK ABOUT what you think? Exactly how full is your cup?
Are you interested in another billionaire benefiting at the 1% share
divvying your constitutional cut?

Aha! Don’t get your feet in another rut. Do think about tomorrow.
Please don’t vote on a whim; from that, we have this current sorrow.

Tomorrow is coming. A new dawn will crack.
I don’t know where you are now, but we can talk about that.

LET’S TALK ABOUT staying in good shape. Has your gym membership been handy?
Chile, I utilize the home gym 4 times a week tho daily I’m eating chocolate candy.

dancing-chocolate-candybarLawd help me. I am without restraint and head over heels for sweets.
It’s just that unlike fruit it’s easy to chew and soft on my teeth.

To wear braces is not a cool breeze.
Still, for my good, I’ll put away the sweets.

I intend to live mindfully; I’m truly ’bout it, ’bout it.
I love keeping it real with you – I’m glad we talked about it.

Alas, the weekend is upon us and I want to go out tonight.
Like you – I’ve got bills too, still, I insist on living life.

Dancing is a must. LET’S TALK ABOUT it, shall we?
You don’t like crowds, we can dance at my house –
It’s a get together if we have more than 3.

Let’s do it! It’s Friday morn and we have plenty of time to invite,
I’m Qui
Ready to take on the day, do my homework and play before I kick it with you tonight.
Right?

LET’S TALK ABOUT…
