Hello Monianne. Wecome to Women Speak (WS). I love your smile! I guess you hear that all the time! I'd like to ask you to drop by our Introductions thread and tell us a little about yourself. We are all very excited with the thought of getting to know you better.
Hello dear member of the Black Feminist/Womanist Literature group! It's J., the admin., and I'm writing to inform you of the group's new look! (And it goes beyond the change in our group picture, though it is nice, don't you agree?) :) What we're discussing now: Patricia Hill Collins' Black Feminist Thought, Toni Morrison's Sula for our July read, our little BIG Read: 7 short stories in 7 days to begin later this month, the National Black Arts Festival where Alice Walker and Pearl Cleage are featured speakers, and more!
We'll soon have a group blog up and running, will begin profiling the uberly dynamic authors within our own group, discussing women's/girls action coalitions in your city, reviving some of our good ol' threads, etc.
I challenge everyone to invite at least one friend (already a member of shelfari or otherwise) to join the Black Feminist/Womanist group and to log in at least bi-weekly. (Though weekly would be wonderful!) And I pledge to do the same.
And did you know that Toni Morrison's new novel, A Mercy, is due to be released in November? Ah, you would if you'd visited our group page! (No, actually, I haven't posted this information. lol) But do stop by and fall into the purple haze that is extraordinary literature by feminists of color!
I am just checkin up on you. How are things in East Lansing? I know that you are excited about leaving for Brazil. I wish that I could go with you because I really need a break. We just moved into a new house. I love the house but we have a lot of work to do, and tons of furniture that we need to buy. But anyways I thought about you and decided to drop you a line.
Blessings & Peace
Thanks for contacting me/I do so enjoy Vanzant's books....and to answer your question about "Christianity before Christ books,"-I am always interested in reading books which spark interesting debates-these two definitely fit into that category because a lot of people do not even want to wrap their heads around the notion that Jesus was a Jew.............
