THE CREATIVE WORK OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN MOTHER DÒWÒTI DÉSIR
A GeoSpiritual Journey
IN THE PRESS
Désir is called by God to speak truth to power, is an amazing interdisciplinary scholar and has the artistic lens that gives life to blank and invisible spaces. Wòch kase wòch reveals the third eye and brilliance of Sister Dòwòti. The essays animate Pan African epistemology and historiography that centers on the role of spirituality in the human community.
Dr. IVA CARRUTHERS, AUTHOR AND GENERAL SECRETARY OF
SAMUEL DeWITT PROCOTOR CONFERENCE
Redlining a Holocaust is a rigorously researched oeuvre that establishes Dòwòti Désir as one of the most important figures in contemporary African Thought. Redlining is an imaginative and monumental undertaking, a literary, visual and oratorical (the author's words speak to us) that responds to the centuries-long genocide, impugnment, and neglect of Africans (blacks) globally.

In addition to telling our story Goud kase goud is a magnificent display of over 70 photographs of our Maafa. Thus for her distinguished and appropriately documented book on our historical experience along with her distinguished photography, Désir warrants a Pulitzer Prize for Goud kase Goud.
