Why My Writing Used to Center Around Whiteness
Published at : 16 Jan 2021
I've been a writer longer than I've been anything else other than Black and female. For a long time my writing was very white-centric. White characters with white problems living little white lives. Even in writing fantasy and science fiction.
I didn't even realize I was doing this or why until my 20s when I had a major wake up call into my own oppressive conditionings from childhood books and media, and saw how much feeling invisible in the world as a Woman of Color had ingrained itself into my own creative writing.
Here I explore my writing journey and this discovery, as well as why we all as creatives of color need to dive into and dismantle our oppressive conditionings and beliefs to unlock the powerful potential of our creative work.
