    For so much of the 18th century
    was white made literary; or
    at least that was quite
    possibly the majority of
    published workings...literally~

    Dressed in *blue stockings rather
    than in nude --
    organized and attended primarily by
    women with guilt or a need
    to belong
    fashioned themselves in the
    best clothes, sitting around
    idle, sneer and all, with
    pretentions and aspirations
    of literature and learning...

    Now in the 21st century,
    with the majority looking
    more and more Black Like Me
    Do you think that black women
    wear 'blue stockings'...

    I am unaware if it's true
    don't know why we'd want
    to
    ~ belong to a 'centuries
    of old' literary
    club with contempt and
    derision from white women...

    So my answer be this to you...
    Women of Color - prefer
    ... Black Silk ...
    and do not want to fit
    into the mold of pre-existing
    guilds that are outgrown,
    ancient in beliefs...
    creating separate - but
    separate;
    an all-to-familiar historical
    grief...
    ...Black female scholars and literaries
    in this now time of age have
    created our own

    *blue stocking - A nickname for a female literary
    club of the 18th century, London.

    That was truly deep ... and meaningful
    Continue to inspire and teach me, please
    So that in return, I can inspire and teach
    Someone else ... Thank You!
