Happy Birthday Ms. Clifton: ShapeShifter Sunday Rebirth Broadcast #1

28 06 2010

Greetings loved ones!

This week…in honor of Lucille Clifton’s first birthday since her transition to starshine I offer the first of a series of weekly Sunday Rebirth Broadcasts in honor of Lucille Clifton!  Today’s exercise is based on her powerful survival poem “won’t you celebrate with me.”

This series of broadcasts is part of the Lucille Clifton ShapeShifter Survival School:

In honor of the great poet Lucille Clifton, who was also a survivor of  childhood sexual abuse, a mother, an artist and self-identified Amazon  warrior through her poetry, the <strong>Lucille Clifton ShapeShifter  Survival School </strong>is especially designed for families that are  committed to ending childhood sexual abuse and all forms of gendered  violence. Informed by Generation 5 and the regional plan of the Atlanta  Transformative Justice Collaborative, the ShapeShifter Survival School  is part of a holistic process of ending child sexual abuse by creating  healing community.

And finally…no one delivers this poem better than Ms. Lucille herself.

love you!
