Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone.  What a week of conversation!  I have to say I love the way that this community does not shy away from the tough topics.  I love that we learn together, and the way that we share.  I can never say thank you enough for that.

In the spirit of continuing to broaden the conversation, I am  officially reminding everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  If there is an issue that is not getting enough coverage, or something that you really want to discuss, please feel free to either send me your original work or a link back to your blog via e-mail  womanistmusings [at] . The more people that contribute, the better the conversation will be.

Below you will find links to a few interesting posts that I found this week.  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.
