A member of a NaNo Group asked the question: What Character or book allowed you to see yourself? (we are talking about representation) and I instantly thought of The For Colored Girls Play. And especially about this quote. Because boy does it still ring long and damn clear! #quotes #representation #powerfulwords

If this book isn't in your TBR list it should be. The subject of this book is so relevant to our world today & what is happening not only in the US but in many western countries in the world today. Silence and apathy don't solve anything. Speak up, speak up for yourself, speak up for those who you love & those who have been historically oppressed, & speak out against those who wish to & continue to inflict harm.

"Weakness is treating someone as though they belong to you. Strength is knowing that everyone belongs to themselves."
