Article: Remembering the Life, Love and Legacy of Audre Lorde

The necessity of writers allowing their words to root and grow into essays, poems and stories is courage and a display of effortless perseverance. My new studies in Africana Women’s Studies, is adorned with critics and contributions of Audre Lorde. I was familiar with her work before I re-entered school but I didn’t understand the magnitude of her contributions because I was unaware she had created a grand portion of the language. Her love of equality and freedom for people of color, women and artists is something to be studied. Please enjoy the article below on Ms. Audre Lorde!

SHE CHRONICLES, and so we begin

She Chronicles celebrates the feminine narrative through showcasing Her unique vernacular in literary contributions.  “Women writing about other women responsibly.”

People think this is not a big message, women writing responsibly about other women.  If so, the majority of female stage, screen and television actors would not be placed in story lines primarily due to their relation with children and/or their husbands/boyfriends.  We would have more stories that detail a developed protagonist and her achievements.   There are TONS of stories that have a lead male who has a mission/goal that he goes after ambitiously and then at night returns home to his wife and children or his girlfriend.  This is the massive norm.  The feminine narrative has been bent into shapes over so many years that it is literally unrecognizable.  Her voice sits so politely on the couch or hangs so nicely creased in the closet it appears comfortable and satisfied.  It is not.

An Incredible Launch Day!

Grace in Retail – The Bonus, had an INCREDIBLE debut yesterday landing #12 with Amazon Kindle short reads in Humor & Entertainment!  Thank you a million times for the support!

To support myself financially throughout the years while working on my artistic endeavors, I have worked as a store manager in retail.  Working with the public garners some very interesting stories!  And being a store manager, in charge of taking care of a team and customers can be a very taxing job.  Like any job, it can be rewarding and on other days have you wondering, “why/how did you get in to this?!”

I wanted to create this project as an ebook series instead of a paperback. I will release it according to four major parts of a retailers life, (1) getting a bonus (2) getting corporate/regional visits (3) black friday (4) holiday shopping.  I had fun remembering the characters and stories and I hope you enjoy reading them.
