“If you want to fly, you have to give up the things that weigh you down.” — Toni Morrison

This is one of the Brave Sis foremothers I had the honor of meeting and interviewing in the late 1980s, when I was just out of college! I was living in Paris and she graciously accorded me an interview for the English language magazine where I worked at the time. I spent an hour with Toni Morrison, asking her more questions about life than about writing, and she was so kind to me! One piece of advice she gave me, decades before I could make use of it, was about being unapologetic and not doing the labor of others. "I don't educate anyone who isn't buying my books or enrolled in my class," she said. I carry that advice like a precious gift everyday—and you can carry more of your wisdom right next to your heart, with this, a shirt that is an honor to produce.
