Speaking truth to power, and owning the power of narrative to break the bonds of injustice.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
THE WRITE MIZ BARNZ
Narratives for change...when silence is not an option.
The Write Miz Barnz is my little effort. I'm Esmeralda Williams-Barnes and I have a big story I often wish I didn't have. Who wants a rare pancreatic disorder, while being forced to face systemic racism at the very medical system that is supposed to help you? I often say "I am the science of sexual violence." Never did I want to discover it was a half-truth. Face enough violence, corruption and you can drop the "sexual." Here, I will write the stories that, north and south of the Mason-Dixon line, many will wish I didn't. Corruption and injustice have no right to my silence. Every story has its time. The time for mine is now.
