As mentioned in my last post, here’s the lists of some favorite female artists I came up with the other night, with a lot of gaps (help me out here), despite the fact I could and did think of several for some letters, for instance for poets and the letter “D” I thought of an old obscure favorite from the 1960s Gail Dusenbery, and then of course Emily Dickinson and wait old friend and unique poet Tina Darragh and ditto Meri Nan-Ama Danquah and Diane di Prima, and then H. D.—Hilda Dolittle—and more! but resisted and went with first choice, and no family members):
Artists and sculptors:
HURSTON, ZORA NEALE
JEWETT, SARAH ORNE
MURPHY, MERILINE E.
ANDREWS, THE SISTERS
ROSS, ANNIE (with or without Lambert and Hendricks)
SIMONE, NINA (mostly the early recordings from the 1950s and ‘60s)
