WEEEEEEY NOW I WON’T SCREW UP MAKING CHILES RELLENOS
It took me so long to do so many important things. It’s just hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could have been. Jim was five feet from my desk and it took me four years to get to him. It’d be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person. I’m really happy now.
But it would just — just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself, “Be strong. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Conquer your fears — just go after what you want. And act fast, because life just isn’t that long.”"

Black, Chicana, and First Nations radical socialist and anarchist labor organizer Lucy E. [González or Gonzales] Parsons (1853-1942) ca. 1920.
“Feared by the authorities because of her charismatic fiery speeches and intellect, the first Afro-Latina woman of color to engage prominently in the history of the Leftist American labor movement was labeled as ‘more dangerous than a thousand rioters’ by the Chicago Police Department.”
William Loren Katz writes in a passage adapted from Black Indians: A Hidden Heritage,
A dynamic, militant, self-educated public speaker and writer, she became the first American woman of color to carry her crusade for socialism across the country and overseas. Lucy Gonzales started life in Texas. She was of Mexican American, African American, and Native American descent and born into slavery. The path she chose after emancipation led to conflict with the Ku Klux Klan, hard work, painful personal losses, and many nights in jail. In Albert Parsons, a white man whose Waco Spectator fought the Klan and demanded social and political equality for African Americans, she found a handsome, committed soul mate. The white supremacy forces in Texas considered the couple dangerous and their marriage illegal, and soon drove them from the state…
She was one of only two women delegates (the other was Mother Jones) among the 200 men at the founding convention of the militant Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and the only woman to speak…
Lucy Parsons’ determined effort to elevate and inspire the oppressed to take command remained alive among those who knew, heard, and loved her. But few today are aware of her insights, courage, and tenacity. Despite her fertile mind, writing and oratorical skills, and striking beauty, Lucy Parsons has not found a place in school texts, social studies curricula, or Hollywood movies.

How dare you pin these two women against each other?
I wonder if you could ever understand how brave it was of me to let you go. How honest it was. You were the only stability I had, the one sure thing I knew. You were the love I knew I had and could count on. And, I let it go. I threw myself into hell. I knew you and all you offered was not what I sought. You weren’t my path. I am my path. I went where forgiveness goes not. And I’ve risen. You may have love now, but ill have something much greater. Ill have myself, my own selfmade, selfloved self ; And that’s a testament to my fucked up integrity, my biased compassion, and my crude honesty.

won't you celebrate with me what i have shaped into a kind of life? i had no model. born in babylon both nonwhite and woman what did i see to be except myself? i made it up here on this bridge between starshine and clay, my one hand holding tight my other hand; come celebrate with me that everyday something has tried to kill me and has failed.
