THIS AINT I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE: Rape in Black Speculative Fiction
Among African Americans, there is a reluctance to report rape and incest. A reluctance born of wariness of authority, especially white authority, which is learned from the experience of white lynch mobs; the death of four little girls killed during the bombing of a church in Birmingham and the battered body of young Emmett Till. There is reluctance, because we remember the destruction of entire cities – such as Tulsa, Oklahoma and Rosewood, Florida – at the hands of white mobs after a Black man was wrongfully accused of raping a white woman.

Being back home in Nigeria has been nothing but liberating, but as I am reaching my third week of settling down here, the frustrations that I knew to expect are now hitting me.

Guys, I have so much work to do. I am overwhelmed with emails, I’m broke as always and there’s just so much work to do….

My truth. Right here too. You are not alone darling.

It’s aliiiiiiiiive! I started this project nearly three years ago, back in October 2011. It started mainly out of my curiosity about the processes and practices of artists across the spectrum—-visual, performance, and literary.

This has been a labor of love and I am so glad to finally be able to share this!

So proud of my girl, Danielle for getting this project off the ground and flying!! Check it out. I am here for the labors of love and good people doing good things!
