People's Skool Summer 2010

by Libah Sheppard

I am not a violent woman, not an angry woman, nor am I a vicious woman, as a matter fact I am a spiritual woman guided by:  God, Allah, Jehovah, Jah, Creator, Dios, Most High.  Channeled by my ancestors to spiritually do the right thing, but in 1992 I was going to kill my Father that’s right I was going to blow his Mother Fuckin' Head off.

by La Toyia Hudson

Being the child of poor, multi-racial, teenage, and public aid-dependent parents, I swear to myself I will never raise a child in a financially unstable home. So I made a mental choice to withhold my virtue till marriage; but life apparently had other plans for me.
