The TOP 70 FUNNIEST Tombstones EVER - Alonzo Lerone
This week, we lost an incredible writer. Toni Morrison was a novelist, essayist, editor, professor, and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. In honor of Toni Morrison, I want to share five quotes from Black authors that are sure to give you the push you need to write something fantastic. It seems strange that even with the countless novels available to us all over the world, there are still gaping holes in every genre. If something is missing in your genre of choice, be the solution to that problem. No one story is the same, which means you and only you can tell the one sitting inside your head and heart, waiting to be written.
Growing up as a Black girl writer, various books and writers sustained me. One such writer was Zora Neale Hurston. I lived by her. I read over and over again her short story, The Gilded Six Bits. It was like I was there. I could taste the molasses kisses Joe bought for their new born baby boy.
