We are looking to develop a site dedicated to the women who have ruled since the beginning of times, or as long as the sources date back.

From the real life character, Josie, in W. E. B. Du Bois’s Souls of Black Folk, to Claudia Jones and Shirley Graham Du Bois, and now Angela Yvonne Davis, African American womanhood continues to play a major role in world and human affairs.
The female gender and its place as militant fighter and yet nurturer, brutally exploited, oppressed and despised, will yet take a primal role in establishing humanity as such.
Nothing can stop this integral role, this destiny.
This, ironically, is the truest liberation of the male, who should be the first to lay down his life for his mother.
All of us would count our true mother, Africa.
