In this episode, three women of color—Linda Garcia Merchant, Jamaica Baldwin, and Claire Jimenez—share creative work and offer context for that work before engaging in a frank conversation about being both transplants to Nebraska and graduate students. For this episode, Linda Garcia Merchant also served as a producer. The complete title of this episode is taken from the prologue to Audre Lorde’s Zami: A New Spelling of My Name: “Woman forever. My body, a living representation of other life older longer wiser. The mountains and valleys, trees, rocks. Sand and flowers and water and stone. Made in earth.”
