I thought it would be nice to add a glossary page because there are many ways to define key terms of topics discussed in this blog. I am not saying these definitions are the only way these terms are defined but this is how the terms are defined in this blog within the context it is written.
* Terms will be added frequently

Colored girl – women of African descent, including all women a part of the diaspora. Taken from the term referenced in Ntozake Shange’s , For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When The Rainbow is Enuf literary work.
