Yeyesadio Writes


me | swap meet | where it's at | get at me | Mama's Quilt



This was me checking personal e-mail when I was supposed to be working. It was a cold and boring day.

Se alaafia ni, ore mi?


who i be 
d.o.b: 01/30/75
sex: queer
nationality: african-american, emphasis on african 
location: soon-to-be deep south
aim: yeyesadio
edumacayshun: self-taught all the important stuff
diet: cigarettes & sunshine 


current plan(s): good mama, student, writer, activist, bookseller, website editor & producer.

future plan(s): great mama to an unschooling grrl, radical librarian, writer, historian, activist, bookstore owner, and a house with a yard.

interests: gullah and yoruba, the american south, radical politics, thrift stores and garage sales, vodka & spoken word poetry.

i'm anti-social. i'm obsessed with the past. i learned the word "anachronism" at the age of 12, and that was my introduction to identity politics. i used to write poetry, but i've been suffering from writer's block for the past two years. 

i edit and produce mamasaid, a soon-to-be webzine and international collaborative effort by the mama crew better known as the mamasaid collective. we're a loose collective of radical mamas of color facilitating projects and just generally making kickass femi-womanist thangs happen. projects include an online quilting bee, zine-making, and working in our local communities and in tandem with other progressive groups planning the revolution. we are currently creating a workshop on conscious parenting that will be presented at the anarchist people of color conference next year.

i assist in editing for mamaphonic and review books occasionally for sites like this one. to get my creative juices flowing again, once i make my move out of this soul-numbing city, i will be following in the footsteps of anita singleton-prather and luisah teish in the griot tradition, telling stories through a public library program. i will also be doing my take-no-shit radical thang with a local chapter of INCITE! i'm a survivor.

since the above projects are total labors of love and mama needs bank, i'm setting up a completely capitalist venture designed to keep me out of The Man's pocket and at home with my daughter as much as possible - a bookselling and search service specializing in used and rare books by, for and/or about people of color. i'll be starting out small, but hope to have a web presence by year's end. if you have any books lying around you wanna get rid of and wanna help a po', broke, lonely and strugglin' single student mama out, see my swap page or e-mail me. hey, information should be free, but i got bellies to fill.

Ipade wa bi oyin.


Val, Mica, Tanya, me and Hugo, one of the sexiest men in Denver and a mean salsa dancer.
