ZAINAB AMADAHY READS HER POETRY

I met Zainab in 2005 at an Indigenous solidarity meeting.  We immediately connected. The past five years has seen us attend many political events together, engage in long conversations on the phone and over coffees while discussing mixed race identity, Indigenous issues, the activist scene, and of course, writing.

Last March (2010) Zainab showed me her true friendship as she was one of the few people who stood by me after I wrote a controversial article critiquing problematic practices in Toronto’s activist community: http://canadiandimension.com/articles/2841/  

Many people, (‘friends’, lovers, acquaintances, and fellow ‘activists’), stopped talking to me after the article was published.

Zainab is a strong friend, writer, activist, and woman of colour.  Please enjoy her poetry.  

Tune in to Black Coffee Poet next Monday October 4, 2010 for a review of “To Love A Palestinian Woman” by Ehab Lotayef.

Join the Sisters and Brothers in Solidarity – A Walk for Justice for Missing and Murdered Native Women to STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST ABORIGINAL WOMEN IN CANADA next Monday October 4, 2010 4:30 pm, Queens Park Toronto. 


After the march join the Sisters in Spirit Vigil Toronto to honour the lives of missing Aboriginal women in Canada at Allan Gardens (the corner of Carlton St. and Jarvis St.), Toronto, ON, 7 – 9 pm.
