Renee at Womanist Musings is hosting a blog carnival for women of color and allies. As she explains:

It is my hope to be able to run this carnival once a month and feature posts that show an intersection of racism and all of the “isms”. It is often the invisible elephant in the room and the more we all work hard to shed light on the different ways in which our society is divided the closer we will move to a post racial world.

Here is the link to the carnival web page…Please take the time to submit something. I would like to also remind everyone that I am accepting guest posts, so if there is something you want to get off your chest, just send me an e-mail. I am trying to broaden the conversations that happen here.

You can also post links to me in the comments, or send them via e-mail to terakrk AT gmail DOT com. The first edition of the carnival will run on February 15; subsequent editions will run on the 15th of every month.

The Angry Black Woman is hosting a Carnival of Allies

[w]here self-identified allies write to other people like themselves about why this or that oppression and prejudice is wrong. Why they are allies. Why the usual excuses are not good enough. I figure allies probably know full well all the many and various arguments people throw up to make prejudice and oppression okay. Things that someone on the other side of the fence may not hear. Address those things and more besides.

And when I say allies, I’m talking about any and every type. PoC [people of color] can be (and should be) allies to other PoC, or to LGBTQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual/transgender, queer] people if they are straight, or any number of other combinations. If you feel like you’re an ally and have something to say about that, you should submit to this carnival.

The deadline for submissions is May 5. Again, go here for the full rundown, and to submit your entry.
