Kiesha's Current Influences

It is impossible to list every Black woman who has influenced me!  But this is a small collection of several Black women who have taught me a great deal over the past couple years.  In various ways, they have expanded my thinking and possibilities. They gave me people to relate to and showed me I wasn't alone in my thinking and experiences.  A few of them, I would go so far as to say they saved me.  I share them with hope they can enlighten you too.
