Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another good week of conversation.  There were some really controversial subjects.  Please remember to engage respectfully; we don’t always agree  but the point is to take the time to consider all of the different perspectives.

I want to remind everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  If you have a new post or a cross post, please feel free to send me an e-mail.  I am only one person and therefore the best way to widen the conversation is for different voices participate.

On Sunday at 8pm Monica, Allison and I will be interviewing, spoken-word poet and disability-rights activist Maria Palacios.

We can be found on Blogtalkradio at 8pm on Sunday July 19.  The call in number is (347) 326-9452. I look forward to hearing from you and if you miss the live show I will post a link to the recording.
