Share The Love With Five Powerful Blogs

image A blogger I truly admire Janet, from Black Political Thought has honored me with this award.

According to Electronic Village, the 'Sharing The Love' Award, was created by Blogger Crystal at Memoirs Of A Mommy blog, in honor of donor who saved her one month old’s life a year ago. Cyrstal’s son Noah celebrated his first birthday thanks to someone who gave the gift of life.
In Crystal’s own words, here are the rules of the Share the Love Award:

“Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.
**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipients to do the same**
I created this award in
Honor Of The Donor That Saved Noah’s Life. I share this award with those of you whose love and friendship have enriched my life and made my world a better place.I hope by passing this award around the blogging world we can all help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.”

It is in that spirit and deep gratitude that I share the love with…

The Curvature:  Cara's blog deals with sexual assault.  Everyday she reminds us why it is important to fight for women's rights because we are not safe in this world.  We are not hysterical, ranting feminists, women constitute vulnerable members of this society, and we cannot afford to turn our back to this issue. She has such a unique way with words, that I often find I must stop and reflect after reading one of her posts.

Harriets Daughter ( Don't Do That): This award is for her post entitled Mammy.  I have read many essays about the social construction of black women but reading Mammy truly struck a nerve with me.  It is one of the best articles ever written about this awful characterization.  I cannot state enough how important it is that everyone take the time to read this post. This is beyond excellent work.

Feminocracy:  An irreverent thought provoking blog dedicated to critiquing race and gender. These women have a true gift for truth telling.  If you like to hear it straight, this is the blog for you.

Just A Girl In Short Shorts Talking About Whatever: My day is not complete without stopping by this blog. I love her irreverent graphics and biting satire. No truth is to hard for this woman to tell. I may not always agree with her, but I never leave bored.

Racialicious (Latoya) Peterson): Each morning my day begins with a green tea and Racialicious. I must admit since discovering this blog I am hooked. I am a committed anti-racist but reading racialicious has taught me that I still have work to do.  Latoya is the master of making the familiar strange, you cannot truly own your privileges until you learn to dissect what you have internalized from society. 

Please take the time to check out the blogs that I have passed this wonderful award on to. Hopefully the circle of love will continue to increase. Thanks again for the recognition and support Janet.
