Hello everyone. It's been awhile since I have done one of these. After my summer break, I'm trying to get back into the groove of things once again. Below you will find links to pieces that I came across this week. A link is not an endorsement, it simply means something about the piece caught my attention. I didn't read the comment section, so please read that at your own risk.
Now that Womanist Musings is up and running again, I am once again in pursuit of new contributors. If you would like to be a part of the Womanist Musings team, or simply cross post something you have already written, please feel free to send me an email at womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot) com.
Alright everyone, this is your big chance. Please use the comment section of this post to give a shout out to your work, or anything else that you have found interesting. That's right, it's time to drop it like it's hot.
