A new year brings new features here on @rebirthoflisa! I decided to cancel my previous Words Crush Wednesday #wcw Challenge for several reasons. However, before you clutch your pearls, I am implementing a new feature to take it’s place. The replacement is not a challenge. it is simply wise words spoken from those who came before us and knew a whole lot more. I call it ‘Wise Words Wednesday’ and today is the launch. To kick things off, I am using the wise words of the remarkable James Baldwin.
Be sure to leave your comments and let me know what’s going on in your world. And remember…
Today’s Featured author for Black Authors I LOVE! is the wonderfully talented James Baldwin! He was a true Renaissance Man. He was ahead of his time and I for one would love to know what he would think of the world today. I am sure he dreamed, but never actually thought the day would come when people of the LGBT Community could express their love openly and go a step further and get married. He wrote many classics, but my personal favorite is “Giovanni’s Room” – a story about an American man in Paris who struggles between his love of a man and a woman.
My choice for this week’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday from Silver Threading’s Blog Challenge is from James Baldwin:
