I am a Southern Black Woman Playwright.
To me, the Southern Black Woman Playwright brings forth the authenticity of the sum parts of its whole. The intake of breath before each word is full of the love, individuality, heat, passion, grit, church, and "I've always taken care of you and no one else will do it like I will"-ness that only the amalgam can hold. The embrace this identity, my identity, gives me is unlike any other.
Its breeze follows me, flows through me, is me.
And it has me forever.
