"For the many like me, black and female, it is
imperative that our writing begin to recreate our histories and our myths, as well as
integrate that most painful of experiences-- loss of our history and our word. The
reacquisition of power to create in one's own i-mage and to create one's own i-mage is
vital to this process; it reaffirms for us that which we have always known, even in those
most darkest of times which are still with us, when everything conspired to prove
otherwise--that we belong most certainly to the race of humans." ..The Absence of Writing or How I Almost Became a Spy ©
