Mary Turner 1918 Eight Months Pregnant Mobs lynched Mary Turner on May 17, 1918 in Lowndes County, Georgia because she vowed to have those responsible for killing her husband arrested. Her husband was arrested in connection with the shooting and killing Hampton Smith, a white farmer for whom the couple had worked, and for wounding his wife. Sidney Johnson. a Black man, apparently killed Smith because he was tired of the farmer’s abuse. Unable to find Johnson. the killers lynched eight other Blacks Including Hayes Turner and his wife Mary. The mob hanged Mary by her feet, poured gasoline and oil on her and set fire to her body. One white man sliced her open and Mrs. Turner’s baby tumbled to the ground with a “little cry” and the mob stomped the baby to death and sprayed bullets into Mary Turner.

My brain has no heart, my heart has no brain. That’s why when I speak my mind, I seem heartless & when I speak my heart, I seem thoughtless.

"Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive."

More poetry and prose by Lang Leav available here

found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom

The most frightening nightmare
of all is neither of monsters, ghosts,
lost teeth or great falls
but the simple lovely awful dream
of a lover who loves you no more.
