My comrades in San Francisco pooled their power to make every March 28th JANET MOCK DAY in San Francisco. Deeply humbled to be holding this proclamation, and am grateful to Cecilia Chung for presenting this award to me and surely making this happen with Mayor Edwin M. Lee.

Oya: Rise of the Orishas, takes a pantheon of ancient West African deities, known as Orisha, and resurrects them as modern day superheroes in a new action packed film.

We focus on a young woman named Adesuwa who has the unique ability to transform into the fearsome warrior goddess, Oya, the Orisha of change. When she does, she gains amazing powers.

The filmmakers need funding to get it made. Go to their indiegogo page to find out more.

When Audre Lorde made that much quoted yet often misunderstood cautionary statement warning us that “the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house,” she was urging us to remember that we must engage in a process of visionary thinking that transcends the ways of knowing privileged by the oppressive powerful if we are to truly make revolutionary change. She was, in the deep structure of this statement, reminding us that it is easy for women and any exploited or oppressed group to become complicit in structures of domination, using power in ways that reinforce rather than challenge or change.
