Tomorrow I will be speaking at Spelman College as part of a panel of artists, curators and scholars to discuss the Misrepresentation of Black Women in Performance.  I have been scouring my memory, bookshelves and the Internet for inspiration, quotes and plain knowledge.  I thought I would share some things I found here:

Between the Lines Conversation between Authors, Zadie Smith and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Dancing While Black Story Circles

Dancing While Black In Our Own Words

Harvard Students Campaign #itooamharvard

Feminism is for Everybody; bell hooks

Black Female Voices: Who is listening? A conversation with bell hooks and Melissa Harris-Perry

Black Hair

You are Lupita

The Fetishization of Lupita Nyogo

Wish me luck!
