"Living in poverty is like being punched in the face over and over and over on a daily basis. It’s pulling yourself out of a hole, only to fall over a cliff. Every step in the right direction is rewarded with a hearty push several steps back. The changes to one’s mental health when living in poverty can be astonishing."
"In her article “Founding Mothers: Female Rebels in Colonial New Granada and Spanish Florida,” Landers recounts the experiences of a 17th-century fugitive slave woman named Juana, who became the fundadora or founder/leader of the Matudere maroon society located outside of Cartagena, New Granada (Colombia)."
