it may well be beyond
from Alice Walker's "Lest We Forget: An Open Letter to My Sisters":
Imagine, if he wins the presidency we will have not one but three black women in the White House; one tall, two somewhat shorter; none of them carrying the washing in and out of the back door.
The letter appears in the current issue of The Black Scholar, vol. 38, no. 1, pretty much every page of which we found interesting reading, several weeks back.
The journal is slow to update its website with the newest issue. However, we're happy to discover that Walker's letter appears in its entirety at The Root.com, here, with some terrific comments.
