From my front porch 

Language is the gateway to freedom and to our full humanity. Black and Brown people are not wholly marginalized. Although the state marginalizes us, we are essential people in creation and in democracy. We are significant to our family, friends and our local and national communities. In short, we are more than what the White guardians of power make of our lives. Rather we are what we make of our lives. Our language must speak to reaffirm the multi dimensional aspects of our lives and the different spaces that we occupy. Ruby Sales
