Words For Warfare

"I refuse to be stereotyped. Look at me. Never mind my color. Please look at me!" - Diana Sands

Special dedication to one of my favorite actress (Sorry to Ms. Lathan, but Ms. Sands owns that part in A Raisin In The Sun)

such a gifted actress.
i fully stand behind what she worked for--to have blacks play roles not written just for black people...ohh a Novel Idea!

it's such a shame she died so young...

black actresses today should be required to learn about her life and the lives of the many great women that came--before setting foot on a stage.

definitely agree with the above comment...

i still wonder what would have happened had she lived long enough to carry on the role of Claudine... definitely passed too soon

I absolutely love this quote: "Look at ME."

Prof. Tracey, your quotes from black women are some of my favorite posts on Aunt Jemima's Revenge.
