“A woman-of-color who writes poetry or paints or dances or makes movies knows there is no escape from race or gender when she is writing or painting. She can’t take off her color and sex and leave them at the door or her study or studio. Nor can she leave behind her history. Art is about identity, among other things, and her creativity is political.”

I think I’m moving more toward something that is more radically happy, or more optimistic, about what it means to be a women of color and inhabiting a body of color.
