Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello readers.  I know that the content has been a little light this week and it is because I am busy researching a very large project.  I hope to be able to share the exciting work that I am doing with you soon.  I am trying to work on balancing out my schedule but with the boys finishing school shortly, I cannot promise that it will happen anytime soon. 

In the meantime, if you would like to add to the conversation here at Womanist Musings, please feel free to send me either an original piece, or a link to your blog via e-mail.  Most recently our columnists and contributors have been the catalyst of great conversation. 

I am also still working on a new format for the blog and if you can help out with this through either a donation or some advice, your help would be greatly appreciated.  Though Womanist Musings was started by me, it has become a great community in which we all participate.

Below you will find a list of great articles that I came across this week.  Yes, I did a massive amount of reading.  Please show these bloggers some love and check out their work. When you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
