I fully support and encourage breastfeeding- it’s natural, it’s beautiful, it’s nutritious. But I want us to be careful of putting too much emphasis on the quality of a mother based on her ability or desire to breastfeed. Because of the pressure often placed on mothers to breastfeed exclusively, many mothers suffer at the hands of well-intentioned friends, co-workers, mothers-in-law, and even strangers who think they know what’s best for each individual mother and child. Because of this pressure and …

Toni Morrison remembered: Her irreverence was godly

Leading contemporaries pay tribute to the Nobel prize-winning novelist The Bluest Eye. Its a first novel and yet astoundingly everything is there. The voices, nimbly alive, dont just mimic or signal black life, but, rather, invoke and rejoice in it. The clarity and urgency of characters is telegraphed through indelible gestures: three pennies guarded in a childs shoe, the poor hunched shoulders and tilted head of the girl Pecola, whos lived her whole short life with an internalised sense of ugly unlovability. The various forms of rage that rise up in the face of lack stand revealed, as do the barbarous social conditions in place to perpetuate such lack not just in America but everywhere that difference between people is …
