I hear the voices of loving defiance refusing to perish.
bell hooks once said, “I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else’s whim or to someone else’s ignorance.“
Before that, Paul Robeson:
“… I belong to the American resistance movement which fights against American imperialism, just as the resistance movement fought against Hitler.”
All the voices of benevolent intransigence will forever transmit across history’s airwaves.
Far beyond my life, they will grace the ears of others.
Courage is timeless. Intransigence, ageless.
