Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.  Thanks to everyone for the blogversary wishes.  I still cannot believe that Womanist Musings is two years old.  Wow!  Thanks to all that donated this week and a small reminder to those that are able, please consider a donation to the blog for the purposes of revamping this space to reflect the awesome community that it has become.  Also, I am still looking for hometown hero pieces, so if you know someone special please think about sharing her with us.

Below you will find links to the great posts that I came across this week.  As you can see, I did a lot of reading.  There is some really great work being done online so please show these bloggers some love and when you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
