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
