For those who know the purpose going to a cemetery means as it relates to Oya (although not traditionally/always associated with cemeteries), will understand why Asere Bello telling me that I needed to stay away was problematic.
He (Asere / Awo Ifatade) only ever wanted to dominate, maintain control and instill fear.
Because of the emotional strain of thinking about this became too much (and I still rage), I password protected the majority of the pages and posts on this site and sort of walked away for a bit.
However, it still ate away at me, knowing there are many other women in the world experiencing the same things I went through. So:
- as more and more women hit the streets and become “engaged” in social justice/activism work;
- with the most recent news of R. Kelly and another woman coming forward;
- Joss Whedon’s wife telling her story; and
- the fantastic article written by City Paper about Baltimore artists and abuse,
As time permits, I’ll unlock more of the content, as I’ve seen an increase in organic searches.
As Rep. Maxine Waters Said during last night’s Black Girls Rock, “If You Come For Me, I’m Coming For You.”
