Quotes by Glory Edim  (?)

“Books bring me joy. They’ve always been a space to reflect and see myself.”
Glory Edim

“The literary establishment continues to privilege work that’s just a touch removed, “refined” they would call it. Writers who tone down their anguish, their rage, their nontraditional, “deviant” choices are perceived as more skilled, more worthy of critical acclaim. This often has a lot to do with racism and sexism, and the stories we are “allowed” to tell as people of color.”
Glory Edim, Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves

“Black girls could not be too confident, too loud, too smart. Fat girls could be cute but not beautiful, could be the funny sidekick or wise truth-teller in school plays, never the leading role or love interest.”
Glory Edim, Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves

“No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.”
Alice Walker

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.”
Alice Walker

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.”
Toni Morrison, Beloved

“Make up a story... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul.”
Toni Morrison, The Nobel Lecture In Literature, 1993
