Lesley-Ann Brown: B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary Shero

Lesley-Ann Brown, Poet: B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary Shero

B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary

Black Women in Europe Blog™ 10th Anniversary notes:

I picked Lesley-Ann Brown to be a Black Women in Europe Blog™ Shero because of her beautiful way with words. She’s a prolific poet and essayist with her own publishing imprint as well as dedicated mother, activist and wordsmith. I first blogged about Lesley-Ann in April 2008. Lesley-Ann also knows how to pull together a picnic in Copenhagen where a sister can meet other funny, inspiring and lovely sisters. Somehow Lesley-Ann found the time to write two poems to commemorate the Black Women in Europe Blog™ 10th Anniversary. How fortunate are we? Download your copy now.

Tak Lesley-Ann. Thank you for choosing your words wisely.
