"Black women are a million different kinds of amazing. It is not our race or gender that makes this true; it is [our humanity]. This book is about that humanity—the textured, difficult, and beautiful humanity that lies in the hearts of the all the black women I love."
"“Let folks perceive you however they want—Jezebel, angry black woman, welfare queen—as long as they get the hell out of the way and let you do your thing. Stop looking for approval and permission from people who hate you and want to see you fail, and stop spending all your energy railing against their perceptions. Give yourself a daily/weekly/monthly allotment of outrage, and then be about the business of building.”" — 68% in 'The Sisters Are Alright' by Tamara Winfrey Harris
