The author and host of Black Female Interracial Marriage, Evia has been unafraid to champion freedom of choice for African American women in the marriage arena.  Her essays aren’t always agreeable (I’ve “ouched” my way through a few of them in the past) but as she always says, “Take what you can use and trash the rest.”

She has inspired bloggers such as Gina from What About Our Daughters, and her essays were helpful to Khadija of Muslim Bushido, after she had an awakening of sorts.  (I even started blogging after she urged many of her readers to start their own blogs and present their own points of view)

One woman, creating art and writing on her farm, has had a huge impact on black female empowerment.  Here’s to you, Evia, this week’s “Work it Wednesday” feature.

    I too am a fan of Evia’s blog..and I’m glad I just found yours as well. I too am a black women in an interracial marraige, and I decided to start a wedding style online blog to address style for intercultural and multi ethnic events…for the mere reason that there was nothing like that out there. Would love for you to check it out. http://www.weddingnouveau.com.

    Stay well.
