We are in the process of compiling the 5th (FIFTH!) Issue of Not Your Mother's Meatloaf, Sex Education Comic Book Project. This Issue's theme is AGE.

First: the background. I am a blogger for Refuse the Silence, an organization headed by the great Morgane Richardson and the people that hosted this event. And, because I am a huge nerd, I got giddy at the idea of seeing some of my favorite bloggers speak at this event about something I really care about: race in the feminist movement.
(The picture is of me and Latoya Peterson (editor of Racialicious) after the event! Don't we look chilled out?)
