Quotes

#Quote
1[referring to Bill Clinton]this is our first "black" President. "Blacker" than any actual black person who could ever be elected in our children's lifetime. After all, Clinton displays almost every trope of "blackness": single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald's-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas.
2On truth: Not knowing was hard; knowing was harder.
3On mothering: A daughter is a woman that cares about where she came from and takes care of them that took care of her.
4On mothering: Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that supposed to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing.

6On personal power: A grown woman did not need safety or its dreams. She was the safety she longed for.
