Another Reminder

“But a struggle to survive cannot lead to suicide:  suicide is the opposite of survival.  And so we must not conceal/assimilate/integrate into the would-be dominant culture and political system that despise us.  Our survival requires that we alter our environment so we can live…”

June Jordan, 1992 essay, “A New Politics of Sexuality.”

Quoted in Gumbs, “We Can Learn to Mother Ourselves.”
