"Expressions of bisexuality within the blues are reflective of blues womens' personal, social and political power. The women of the blues create music that is indicative of their strength and power and their legacies are as important to the women and black liberation movements as they are to the history of black American music."
— Marie Incontrera, Bisexuality in the Blues: The Legacy of Womens' Sexual & Musical Liberation
"Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness — and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we're being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling - their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."
— Arundhati Roy, Confronting Empire.
