Quentin-questionable-Tarantino | Black Feminists.

Why does Quentin Tarantino believe himself to be an authority on Blackness or on African American history? Why do we continue to defend what seems to be Tarantino’s ever-growing and ever-public arrogance with regard to African Americans and racism?

How Three Black Women Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love, by Cherie Ann Turpin, Ph.D

Edwin Mellen Press, the publisher of my book How Three Black Women Writers Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love: Rhetorically Transcending the Boundaries of Love is now offering my book in soft-cover for half the price: $43.29 USD.  It’s a heck of bargain considering the fact that the hardcover is $119 USD.  So how do you get it?  Well, until Mellen Press starts offering it online at Amazon or on their site, you have to call and ask, though I’m betting if enough people ask, they’ll relent and get on board with market demand much faster.  Meanwhile, here’s the contact name and phone number:

The War on Women Voting – COLORLINES

The War on Women Voting – COLORLINES.

It gets worse, folks.  Do your homework on the history of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1920), and on the ongoing battle to dismantle full political enfranchisement of American women in the United States.  Ignore the issues at your own risk.
