we gon talk about how Tim Wise has raised more than $13,000 in just a couple days on his kickstarter for his new documentary called “White Like Me”…
People of Color are more than capable of doing that same work.. And many are doing that same work… And they don’t garner that…

Hi, my name is Tiara Peeples, and I am a junior of Africana Studies at the University of Cincinnati. I have been writing since I was in elementary school, and I have always had a love/hate relationship with myself and my writing that caused me to go through spurts of writing and presenting my poetry until I would become afraid and stop. After becoming an Africana Studies major, I realized the importance of women of color sharing our work and our experiences, shared and separate. Unfortunately, it is often hard to find safe spaces for queer women of color, and our absence from media and academia makes it hard for a lot of us to find a voice and/or share that voice with others.
This is why I would like to attend the VONA/Voices Summer Writing Workshop (http://voicesatvona.org/Applying_for_VONA_Voices.html) for women of color writers this summer. The application, tuition and board will cost $2,250*, and I would also like to raise $250 in order to travel by bus or car. I will be sharing my writing, as well as my inspirations, while I’m hosting this fundraiser. I hope that you all enjoy it, and that you give in anyway that you can.
*I’ve corrected the math here because I thought the cost of board was $600.00, not $650.00.
Fees for Tuition and Board
*Regular: Weeklong workshop $800
*Room and Board: $650 (includes meal card)
*A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required
