#Repost @lanierblueblack ( @get_repost) ・・・ Sojourner Truth (1797-1883): Ain't I A Woman? Delivered 1851 Women's Convention, Akron, Ohio Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about? That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full? Then that little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him. If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back , and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them. Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner ain't got nothing more to say. #sojournertruth #womansrights #blackhistory #history #women #strong #blacklivesmatter #blackgirlmagic #chocolate #elevate #love #mother #educate #knowledge #darkskinned #melanin #noslave #sista #brotha #goals #speech #memories

"Lying, by omission or commission, is a bad idea..." Something heard! _ It’s something of a cliche to emerge from a tree hugging style yoga session feeling sanctimonious and smug; every week, a fresh tranche of mama yogi converts starts wittering on about the joys of negative space, crisp air, and rhythmic chants. So, I thought I'd try it out ... cue the short slog to Regents Park for some "getting back to basics" with the toddler. Turns out my yoga. mummy brigade were telling the truth. _ We found the perfect spot and downward dogged, attempted an imperfectly fabulous handstand, and both fell into a beginners guide style lotus position and my god it was so much fun. My #FingerFriday's started as a rant! A little head shakes and finger snaps to little (and large) injustices. But, I'm switching it up because in the week where we both caught the Blue Monday blues I needed something to believe in. _ It’s easy to lose sight of what you want, especially if you haven’t gotten it. It's easy to settle for EASY and bail when the going gets tough.. isn't it? I wish we all saw our dreams as currency. We'd all work harder, faster, stronger and more flexibly. You know it’s less work to put those wishes away, to tuck them in Pandora's box and pretend they didn't exist. But is it right? I think that the most important thing is to know what your prize is, because that is part of who you are. _ I'm in love with her @gapkidsuk jacket, @Nextofficial leggings and my kinky @Zara boots. We've had that jacket for yonks and it's still doing the do now #nottooshabby . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mood #toddler #photo #love #moment #mixed #family #happiness #baby #babygirl #curlygirl #winter #selflove #parent #mumlife #blogger #tbt #tb #instamum #fatherhood #motherhood #family #feminist #daughter #mindfulness #mind #life #daddysgirl
