I was recently a panelist on the new talk show Mind, Body, Spirit with T.D. Jakes. It was wonderful to meet Bishop Jakes and Beverly Bond–the founder of Black Girls Rock. That meeting with her was the inspiration for a paper I recently gave at the Utopian Studies Conference in Charleston, SC. I titled it “Octavia Butler: Black Girls Rock Utopian Reformation.”
I am working on a book that shares what I have learned about images of women in the media specifically for mentors, parents, and friends of young girls.
