Paula Giddings Quote
"But of course an objective analysis of Black women as a group is not enough. We need to see the reflections of our own personal lives to give them meaning, and to assuage our fears. In the seventies and eighties those mirrors have been put in front of us by authors such as Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Gloria Naylor, Toni Cade Bambara, Pearl Cleage, Audre Lorde, Lucille Clifton, Nikki Giovanni,Margaret Walker, Gwendolyn Brooks, Ntozake Shange, Paule Marshall, June Jordan, Judy Simmons, Louise Meriwether, and J.E.Franklin, among others." In honor of Founders' Day thank you for telling herstory.
