  3. "We do exist. I am a black woman who at one time wished to write comics. I know of other black women who are currently writing comics: Marguerite Abouet, Carol Burrell, Spike (C. Spike Trotman), Alitha Martinez, Ashley A. Woods, Regine Sawyer, Jennifer Crute, Starline Hodge, etc. You’ve likely not seen them at many conventions due to the minuscule budget that self-publishing provides, but they exist. Perhaps they are not in great numbers, but they exist and are doing everything financially possible to increase their visibility (websites, interviews, etc.). When established male creators at well-known publishers go on popular, high-traffic websites and state that black women who write or wish to write comics don’t exist it makes it harder for the black women writers that do exist to gain visibility. People will make no effort to seek them out. An offhand comment, even one that is well meaning, can have a negative impact and be demoralizing."

    "We lived in different cities when we first met, and once a month he’d come to visit me. The first time he made the trip, I woke up at 2 AM, and he was singing outside my window with three guitar players. There was a popular song back then called ‘Gema,’ and he changed it to my name, ‘Gena.’"
    "Can you remember the words?"
    "Eres la gema que Dios convirtiera en mujer para bien de mi vida. 
    Por eso quise cantar y gritar que te quiero mujer consentida.”
    [You are the gem that God turned into woman to make my life better.
    Thats why I want to sing and shout that I love you, beautiful woman.]”

    Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony.

    As the top African producer of coffee, and seventh in the world, Ethiopia has a long-standing relationship with the consumption and use of coffee. Ethiopia is home to coffee arabica, a species of coffee indigenous to the country. Considered to be one of the better tasting coffees, it is believed that coffee arabica was the first coffee plant to cultivated and grown in the southwest of the country. It is said that the first instance of the effects of coffee being noticed came about when Ethiopian shepherds in the 9th observed the reaction of their herds after eating the fruit.

    Today, one of the ways that Ethiopians (and Eritreans) continue to demonstrate their love of coffee and their historical relationship with the second most traded commodity in the world, after oil, is through what is known to outsiders as a traditional Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony or Buna by Ethiopians. Often, this practice takes place in peoples homes and at Ethiopian restaurants which is where I first experienced a Buna, in Addis Ababa.

    Conducted entirely by women, the Buna process involves the roasting, grinding and serving of coffee. Washed coffee beans are roasted in a pan, similar to the process of making popcorn. As the aroma of the coffee begins to fill the air, the preparer takes the roasting coffee and walks around letting the fresh scent of the coffee settle around the room.

    Once roasted, the coffee is then put in what is called a Mukecha - a tool used for grinding. Another tool, called a zenezena, is used to crush the coffee in a pistil and mortar fashion. Some places will use modern coffee grinders to save time as it can be a slightly laborious and time-consuming task. After the coffee has been crushed, the fresh coffee powder is put into a jebena, a clay pot. Water is added and the mixture is boiled before being ready to be served in small usually white porcelain cups called cinis.

    Each serving round of coffee has a name - the first being Abol, second is Huletegna and the third and final round is called Bereka.

    Watch an Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony take place.
