It is the representation of black lesbian lives, not simply its analysis and deconstruction that has the most immediate, broad-based and long-lasting cultural and historical impact. Only by telling our stories in the most specific, imagistic, and imaginative narratives do the lives of black lesbians take on long-term literary and political significance.

1. Having Aquaman’s Mera played by a WOC

2. Having Black Manta as the main villain in Aquaman and cast as a Black actor.

3. John Stewart as Green Lantern (or Kyle, tbh, but I think Kyle is more of a TV show GL)

4. Fatality showing up in that movie because John Stewart (or Kyle) is Green…




     I won’t soon forget the events that took place in #ferguson…will you?

This is amazing.
