Greetings loved ones!

It’s that time again! It’s always that time!  The Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind is ETERNAL!   In honor of the birthday of amazing civil rights icon and black feminist mentor Fannie Lou Hamer this

October 6th at 6pm

at Lex’s Inspiration Station

we will be reading this poem fannie lou june jordan which June Jordan published in the New York Times in honor of Fannie Lou Hamer’s life.   Did you know Fannie Lou Hamer was June Jordan’s mentor?  Couldn’t you kind of tell?  Fierceness gets passed along generations! We will also be looking at my special beloved copy of the children’s book that June Jordan wrote about Fannie Lou.

AND because so many of us have the amazing blessing of fierce and fabulous mentors we will be talking about what mentorship means with in the context of black feminism and within our communities in general.

Please come thru with food to share and bring your kids, your mentors and your mentees if you can!

love always,

lex
