Interrogating the Text, De-Colonizing the Mind: An Intra-PoC Dialogue
This special edition of the PoC in SF/F carnival is once again dedicated to
Separated by time and distance, joined by personal experience and on/offline
interaction, our lives together are not always a bed of roses.
In the wake of recent events, what's next on the horizon for intra-PoC
relations? How do I/You/Me/We go about creating those places where our own efforts shine while at the same time work through those things that divide us?
Contributors are invited to engage the theme as they choose. It's a jumping
off point but not necessarily a cliff.
Caveat: Since People of Color (PoC) is not necessarily a universally used term, especially by fans living outside of the US, I encourage those who
have other ways of defining themselves (for example, non-white, fen of
pigment, chromatic) to step up and participate.
Feel free to post this notice far and wide.

We've already started this with PoC Author & Character Story Reccs. But the Carnival is part of our infrastructure and I look forward to seeing yet another aspect of the Conversations We Want To Have.
Also please do not forget the Asian Woman Blog Carnival: Deadline - April 3rd 2009.
