I tell stories because they live longer than us. I write to resurrect forgotten histories. I write to forget. I write to feel. I write to become numb. I write to share stories of a misunderstood nation. I write because I am blessed to be able to read and write.
We don’t need any more writers as solitary heroes.
We need a heroic writers movement: assertive, militant, pugnacious
– Toni Morrison
