Friends of Color Blog

try this

with the subtitle: "...helping the Religious Society of Friends be whole" wow.

It just started up, and I think it's a great idea. I'm hoping there will be a lot of activity and some interesting stuff will come up.

I am also thinking of starting a discussion list for allies, so that those of us who are well intentioned have a place to discuss what comes up for us without getting too much in the way, but I'm wondering if there's any interest? Let me know


OK - the links in my post aren't working, but the link on the side in "quaker blogs I follow" does

bleah, technology

(ok, now I think it works)

Did I mention I love the Temple of My Familiar too? Alice Walker is my hero. I wouldn't be me without her and Walt Whitman.

Oh my God, Allison, me too, about the Alice Walker thing. The Color Purple changed my life.

I saw her on Arsenio Hall in 1991 (and am trying to find it on YouTube without luck). She was promoting a new poetry book collection (Her Blue Body Everything We Know) and he kept hounding her about The Color Purple; he was trying to get her to say that it was a man-hating book. Then she read one of the poems and he didn't understand what it was about. He said something like, "What was that about, a woman is like a potted plant, gardening or something?"

She said, "No. It's about the international domination of men over women."

It was the first time I ever saw him speechless.

I love that story! I'd forgotten Arsenio Hall (but never Alice Walker!)

Pam,

remove the "www." from in front of the blog address in the link and it should work!

Peace,
