What Inspires Toni Asante Lightfoot: "All the artists who fought for an won battles regarding social justice. I sit back and wonder what I can do that will be as effective and affect so many as Gwendolyn Brooks, Frieda Kahlo, Eleanor Roosevelt and my mother. On a smaller scale which is what I specialize my writing towards I am inspired by the little stories that cause paradigm shifts in people. Oh yeah, a shot of rum on a Trinidadian beach does wonders for my muse. Come join me sometime."
