FOR CHRIS, since I know he hearts feminism.

"Den Dat little man in black dar, he say women can't have as much rights as man, cause Christ want a woman. Whar did your Christ come from?' Rolling thunder could not have stifled that crowd as did those deep wonderful tones, as she stood there with outstreched arms and eye of fire. Raising her voice still louder, shes repeated, 'Whar did your Christ come from? From G-d and a woman. Man had nothing to do with him!'
..."If de fust woman G-d ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down..she ought to be able to turn it back and get it right side up again, and now dey is asking to do it, de men better let em!"
-Sojourner Truth, excerpt from "Ar'n't I a Woman?

I love African American Literature. Especially when we learn about feminism in slave history.

Life is great.
