These are the tales, interests, and observations of a feminista tomboy, quasi-minimalist, hip-hop enthusiast. Classic girl next door with a wild-haired, slick-mouthed twist. Raised by lady wolves who liked their liquor neat and their football/basketball/baseball games loud. Editor of fairy tales. Lover of solitude. Preacher from the Gospel of Hov. Where grit and grace collide, all shades of grey are embraced, and dumb rules are left for silly fools. Welcome to the world of The Skinny Black Girl.The intro for my blog. Sometimes, I like to sit back and smile at my writing.
