REMEMBERING ALL WOMEN ON DECEMBER 6TH: “RESISTANCE”, A POEM BY CREE POET CONNIE FIFE

Whitney French reads ResistanceResistance, a poem by Cree word warrior Connie Fife was selected to be read by Whitney French as the closing of Remembering All Women Week on blackcoffeepoet.com.

When meeting Whitney to photograph and videotape her I read the poem and loved it.

Resistance is exactly what it is named.  It goes against the norm; it challenges erasure; it yells for equality; all things that organizers of December 6th Vigils across Canada need to embrace and practice!

See Day One and Day Two of Remembering All Women Week.
