I am Karina Ozuna,
An Afro-Latina "warrior poet" navigating through life trying to figure out what "my work" is and,
In the process,
I hope to inspire you to do "your work" as well (Lorde 41-42).
I would like to dedicate this website to the women who with their words, spirits,
actions, art and bodies paint murals of revolution. They are catalysts for
radical change in their communities & around the world. Their work inspires us
and calls us to action as well. So this website is basically a platform for me
to commemorate these women of color and, make sure their rhetoric does not go
unnoticed. Though this website is composed through essentially my own rhetoric
and point of view, you will soon notice that the site is heavily influenced by
the rhetoric of one of my sheroes: Audre Lorde.
This website was started as an assignment for a course I took in
school. Now that I have completed that course, I will periodically post some of my
assignments and/or incorporate the concepts and ideas I have learned,
All the while encapsulating my journey and who I am.
Peace. Love. & Blessings.
