Wanda Coleman x250

Wanda Coleman
(1946-2013)

I remember your eyes, voice and words woven into your poetry that you shared with so many. Never afraid, said what you meant, and meant what you said. You expressed your thoughts and ideas even when, at times, you stood alone. Thank you for gracing my life and for the legacy that you leave in our care.
