Drop It Like It’s Hot

Good afternoon everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.   I would like to take the time to thank all of the guest posters and columnists this week for their excellent work.  Your voices are a large part of what makes Womanist Musings so unique.   The more people that contribute, the greater the chance that we can have amazing conversations from different perspectives.  If you would like to help with that goal, please feel free to send either a link to your blog post, or your original work in via e-mail.  womanistmuinsgs [at]

Below you will find links to a few (okay more than a few) great posts that I came across this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot, and leave your link behind in the comment section.
