Toni Cade Bambara
(1939-1995) born on
Mar 25
US writer. "She wrote "Gorilla, My Love," 1972."

[W]e have not been scuffling in this waste-howling wildness for the right to be stupid.

"When you dream, you dialogue with aspects of yourself that normally are not with you in the daytime and you discover that you know a great deal more than you thought you did."
"The dream is real, my friends. The failure to realize it is the only reality."
"[W]riting is a legitimate way, an important way, to participate in the empowerment of the community that names me."
Our lives preserved. How it was; and how it be. Passing it along in the relay. That is what I work to do: to produce stories that save our lives.
