      Linda Janet Holmes is Toni Cade Bambara’s first biographer and she is an incredible storyteller. During our interview, Linda shared so much about Toni’s incredible life. Her reflections, stories and remembrances unearth some of the depth of Toni’s foresight, radicalism, and profundity about a wide range of topics. Linda also shared her own herstory about how she became the radical, bohemian, Black feminist writer, mother, women’s health advocate, cultural worker, and grandmother that she is today. Linda’s interview will underscore why both she and Toni Cade Bambara are feminists The Feminist Wire loves. *note* Given the time constraints and the Thanksg(r)i(e)bing 'holiday,' this video is a rough cut. Tina and I will finesse it and replace it in the immediate future.

In 2005, Linda curated “Reclaiming Midwives: Stills from All My Babies,” a first-time national exhibition on African American midwives at the Smithsonian Institution Anacostia Museum in Washington, D.C.
