When the Suffrage movement sold out: "While middle-class white women celebrated with ticker tape parades, black women in the former Confederacy were being defrauded by voting registrars or were driven away from registration offices under threat of violence." (The New York Times

My mom was a fast food cook: "But once she decided that she could be a good mom—the best mom, I’d venture—without being on stovetop duty every night, and that she and my dad were okay with the cost, the routine was set." (Dinner: A Love Story)

Gone in a generation: "The continental United States is 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it was a century ago. Seas at the coasts are nine inches higher. The damage is mounting." (The Washington Post)

50 Black artists, makers and brands to support (always): "Black history and the stories and work of Black creatives should never be limited to just a month." (Design Sponge)

Why I love difficult women: "...difficult women are inspiring. They reshape things in their own image. They do this for themselves, first and foremost, but they also change things for those to come." (Vogue)
