Too much tail. All that jewelry weighs it down. Like vanity. Can’t nobody fly with all that shit. Wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.from Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
Black Women Said is a project of Afrolicious.
In this space, we are collecting quotes from Black women in media both famous and not-yet-famous, from books, journals, magazines, essays, blogs, interviews, videos and media of all forms.
With your help, by the end of this summer, we hope to have a substantial archive of twenty and twenty-first century works by Black women.
Thank you so much for participating!
