Dear Next Chapter...... This Next Chapter will require you to write the truths to the things that will take your breath away. The very site of them on the page will rewind the trauma of the movie of your past. However when they’ve been written this time, they’ll haunt your abuser & release you. Write, I tell you, my sister, my brother; be released by the text of your story, & the lives that will be changed because you survived.
Had a beautiful day with my friend Madeline who took me to see the play ‘School Girls: or The African Mean Girls Play.’ Essence magazine says this is the most important play off-broadway right now and they’re not lying. Ms. Ericka Boafo @maameyaaboafo turned it OUT(bottom left pic, first woman to the left)...Everyone did an amazing job telling this story about the way in which this world perceives (or doesn’t) the beauty of women of color and how this tragedy affects us all...This play has been extended twice and will be around til the end of the month at the MCC Theater in NY.
