There can be no healing at Nottoway Plantation

In yet another example of white feminist cluelessness, Singer Ani DiFranco will hold her annual songwriting retreat this year on Nottoway Plantation in Louisiana. Righteous Retreat Song Camp is billed as a feminist songwriting retreat, and DiFranco’s choice to hold the event at this locale has drawn ire from Black women who note the offensiveness of the location.


Juneteenth is celebrated every 19 June. Happy Juneteenth to all our bloggy friends celebrating today (ish allowing for time differences).
