Friends On Friday

Kind of like #followfriday, only more of a plain old celebration of the folks touching one Black girl’s heart this week.

Above, Miss Maxine, who slowly but surely welcomed me into her life after a rough start on Sunday.  She’s almost as much of a delight as her owners, Chris and Donna.

Adrienne Maree Brown is just tremendous.  Everybody should read her.  You should read her.  Like, starting now.

Aaron Tanaka is also tremendous.  His blog is pretty much brand-new, but already one of my all-time favorites.  Eclectic, on-point, funny, educational.  Solid.

If you ever get the chance, spend some quality time with Carmen Barsody.  Trust me on this one.

Last but not least, word has it that Advance the Struggle is about to publish a piece analyzing March 4th.  Get excited!

And have a fantastic weekend.

    Boomer would love to meet Miss Maxine. Any way you can get her over to Point Isabel?

    Aaron Tanaka’s post is chilling. The shooters lie about seeing weapons and have way too much fun in taking out these men on little (no)evidence of hostility. Shooting the people trying to recover the wounded should be against the Geneva convention and applicable even if you consider the enemy combatants. D
