Lorene Cary
“It didn't occur to me that I never named my own mystery illness the spring before (except to misdiagnose it to friends as mono), because I'd been afraid to admit, even to my mother, how much I'd wanted to lie down somewhere and hide. Black women, tall and strong as cypress trees, didn't pull that. Pain and shame and cowardice and fear had to be kept secret.”
Lorene Cary, Black Ice

Ella December
“A body so poetic, every curve is a verse.”
Ella December
