the spirit of the Lord lives within her!
oh, funny that you put her up today--as, i was going to tell you about

I think she is truly fantastic! I took my only women's studies' class in college with her, so I am so glad I learned early on that feminism was not about white women. We read her text: All American Women, Lines that Divide, Ties that Bind (1986), a perfect example of the tensions within second wave "white women's" feminism which were to be truly reckoned with in the development of feminism among women of color.

Thanks for posting a message about her.

Her Gender Talk book is quite good. It might be something we need to read as a group and discussion online.
