I meant everything that I wrote. DIARY OF A LOST GIRL is my soul book. This is Kola Boof. I have so many enemies who are very powerful. So many lies are told on me, so much cynicism is used to degrade and discredit my life. Of course, Black women are used to that treatment. But I must speak my own truth. I must set an example to show that it's alright to speak ones own truth. Black women need to wake up from their delusions. -- Kola Boof, Womanist Author & Activist
I am constantly at a lost for words. After reading several comments by a poster at Keith Boykin's site, I did a simple search of the name "kola boof." To say I was blown away by what I found and read and bookmarked would be the biggest understatement in my lifetime.
I want to interview this woman, this warrior. I want to hold this woman and tell her that I understand. That I love her and her cause and that everything will be alright. It would do little in the way of soothing her fears and wounds and stopping the hate directed towards her and her efforts. But it would mean the world to me.
