With the cheerleading of my bestie I have published one of my essays at Smashwords.
From my smashwords blurb:
A short essay on telling Whiteness no from the perspective of a pained Black woman. Specifically about how White people talk about young people of color in the news, Trayvon Martin, Rachel Jeantal and Kiera Wilmot. Warning there is racialized language in this piece.
I wrote this a couple of weeks ago in response to a lot of media, other essays and posts on social media by upset White people.
I will probably publish more of this sort of piece myself. Readers so far have responded. I wasn’t sure about doing it this way because admittedly my luck having other people publish stuff like this had been limited. That aside, I do like what I’m doing so why not?
I have the means. I’ll do it for myself.
I feel like in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict this message is necessary.
That’s all for right now. Feel free to share the link as you please.
