2017 Roundup

In 2017, I went from sitting on the sidelines to being activated and doing whatever I was capable of to change what I couldn’t accept. Here is some of what I did and you helped make happen:

  • Created and managed Resist Oppression as an online forum for centering the lives and experiences of black women and QTPoC in an intersectional feminist, anti-racist/anti-oppression focused group.
  • Created Eggshell Free Poetry & Chat for PoC only secret online space
  • Lead the End School Lunch Shaming RI campaign to get Pawtucket Schools to change their policy and raised approx. $3k for that campaign. Those funds were later donated to Pawtucket Backpackers when PSD decided to wipe the debt balance of all the families in the district.
  • Created and managed Killing Georgina fb page to amplify my teachers as I moved through my self directed education in anti-racism/anti-oppression & intersectional feminism.
  • Created a channel to self published essays and poetry on Medium.com.
  • Wrote Booting Beckys & Choosing Myself published by Threads of Solidarity on Medium.com and featured on HuffPo Black Voices
  • Lead organizer of March for Racial Justice RI in Prov 10/1/17 to uplift the Movement for Black Lives platform, shine a light on underreported racial disparities in RI and amplify the work of local organizations and campaigns and member of the national March for Racial Justice steering committee
  • Designed my website www.killing-georgina.org
  • Produced and self published eBook Eggshell Free Poetry by Killing Georgina
  • Raised funds and support for housing a family of 6 (PayPal.me/HousingFamilyof6)
  • Raised funds for DARE, PrYSM, Defend Puerto Rico…

I think you get the idea. I did some stuff and plan to do some more stuff. Throughout all of this last year my authentic self has found its way to the surface again. Parenthood and marriage can make it hard to hold on to a self of yourself and I am proud to say that I feel more myself than I have in nearly twenty years. Above all I have made connections with people I respect and admire and wish to be in community with locally and across the globe. And for that I am incredibly grateful.

my liberation

Green Forest Environmental Campaign PosterUntil you been

lost like me

loved (and unlovable) like me
abandoned like me

used like me

abused like me;

Your judgements

of me

are

irrelevant.

Your guidance

is

flawed.

Your advice

unsolicited.

Until you been lost like me,

you can’t understand

the power of being found

by

your own will

and

creation.

That is my liberation.

I’ve joined the ranks of amazing writers like nayyirah.waheed using #poetsofinstagram, #spilledink, #blackpoets and numerous other hashtags of which I am quickly becoming acquainted. I have even created my own #eggshellfreepoetry and #killinggeorgina.

I am posting image versions of my shorter poetic pieces along side reposts to amplify other artists, writers and marginalized voices.

Black and brown women

College, Students - Free pictures on Pixabay

I want to write something beautiful

My throat is full

And it burns

I want to write something enlightening

My head is a snow globe

Of truths and experiences

They swarm me, warm me, hold me close and whisper “nobody cares, nobody cares, nobody cares”

Hissssssssing

angry whispers in my ear

Seek to silence me and mine

“Nobody cares”

A refrain as old as time

I want to write something beautiful

I want to write something liberating

I want to write something enlightening

I want to write something illuminating

I want to write something that breaks the chains, turns the tides, screams the truths of me and mine from all the peaks

Shining a light for all that seeks

To see black and brown women whole!

Black and brown women free!

Black and brown women held UP, not back.

Black and brown women served, not serving.

Black and brown women protected, not rejected.

Black and brown women wrapped with the care and tenderness we have provided the masses for ages. Hold us close, whispers like honey, sweet, dripping syrup:

You matter baby. You are loved lady. Beautiful. Soft and kind. Unlock the pictures in your mind and fill me with your truths. Baby you, black and brown woman, are gold. Write me something beautiful. Unfold your truths to be told.
