Who is Regi Angelou?

What the lit' read?

Personal blogs supply at least half of the content I use to understand unfamiliar perspectives and empathize with people that I wouldn't ordinarily encounter. Some of their stories are enlightening enough for me to want to share them directly with you, others can be so exciting or frustrating that I just have to give my spiel on it and tell y'al why I'm mad.

One day, my writings will reflect the kind of freedom that says "I don't adulterate my thoughts on my experience for your comfort, fuck ya feelings." I will have effectively peeled away the layers of socialization painted on by a lifetime of being woman and being Black or even being a teacher and a wife. My art will be reflective of my journey and my becoming, and you will be inspired by it.

Here lives some of the literature I've consumed and created.
