    my mother. (to say thank you for all she did for us and to get her guidance one more time)

    the lady on the 4th floor. (when i was 4; we were set out b\c my father wasn't a provider. i remember my mother holding my baby sister in her arms crying and going from building to building asking people if they would just take us in to feed us. this lady had 4 kids of her own and she said yes and she fed us; my mother ate the scraps that we didn't eat.(she didn't want to take any more than she had already taken. i want to tell the mother who didn't have much but saw that we had even less and helped us, i want to tell her that i practice her lesson she taught me to this very day when ever i can)


    to my brutha that between me and our oldest brutha.( he had us agree to look out for me as much as we could b\c our older brutha was locked up and when our father would get us away from the house would be abusive. we stuck together, took action and overcame that dark era in our lives. i just want to be able to talk over old times and say "good lookin out big bruh" .


    peace!!!

    I would like to spend my three days with......

    Maya Angelou... because of the deep passionate way she expresses herself. I would love to listen to her life story and how she overcame obstacles.

    Whoopi Goldberg....her sense of humor would be just what I needed to balance my temper after hearing all their stories and how they delt with racism, bigots, poverty, and gossip.

    Cynthia McKinney....for her courage, strength, and voice from a political stance. Where she draws her courage from, what gives her the strength to fight another day, and how she delt with white supremist politians.

    I would just listen and listen and listen and learn from all these women. Their stories, their experiences, and their motivation and drive to push on through diversities.

    Malcolm X..........Because to hear him speak was mesmerizing and to get to know
    one of the greatest men who ever lived

    Maya Angelou .....This has to be one of the greatest poetess i've ever had a chance
    to read about and to sit down talk to her about some of the great and powerful poems
    GLORY FALLS .......AFRICA.........STILL I RISE........BLACK FAMILY PLEDGE
    I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SING.........FREEDOM FIGHTER.........................
    to hear these poems is like opening a treasure chest.

    Mary J Blige.........this sista i would love to sit with spend time and understand
    all her flicked pain throughout life and how she made it ova the top to be one of
    the greatest female singers and join the outstanding Diva class.

    If Mary can't show up in todays time GWENDOLYN BROOKS to discuss a time
    treasured poem of her's from the 1917 collection titled (BECKONING)
