Soulful Sonia Sanchez

Minneapolis held many delights, and one was seeing the petite, yet potent and positively poetical Sonia Sanchez. I was thrilled to get a glimpse of her in the elevator my first evening in town and overjoyed when she joined our breakfast table the next morning. But was bummed when I couldn’t carve the time to tag along with her on a quick run to Whole Foods.

“. . . I write to keep in contact with our ancestors and to spread truth to people.” — Sonia Sanchez (as quoted in I Dream a World, by Brian Lanker)
