A prolific and widely respected poet, Lucille Clifton's poetry emphasizes endurance and strength through adversity. Thus, I chose her poem "Homage To My Hips" because of the recent United States Supreme Court ruling regarding women's reproductive rights.
Homage To My Hips by Lucille Clifton
these hips are big hips
In the upcoming July 9th Sweat Your Prayers class, my desire is to dedicate our dance to all the women who have just had the 'right to choose taken away from them in certain states.
I also want to dedicate this dance to self-identified women of different shapes, races, ages, and backgrounds.
And finally, I want to devote this dance to our hips, bellies, and pelvises.
Let's come together to open our hearts and hips with the energy of mindful flow to connect and regain hope.
