Repeat : Mamis of Color online

Hola mujeres, I'm writing a history of mami of color communication and organizing online. If any of the mamis of color could tell me when and how /where they connected with other moc online that would be awesome.

I know some have marked Hip Mama boards in the late 90's as a point of entry. Any other points of entry at the same time? Anything earlier? 

feel free to email me at mamitamala at yahoo or gmail dot com or reply here.

Gracias

I didn't do mama's quilt until after hipmama. I found hipmama in Spring 1999 and I was pregnant with Leroy, I had met people online in chat rooms at AOL but I wasn't very internet savvy, I had a computer but I mostly emailed folks. I was not looking for a fight but it was hard not to get addicted to the racialized drama of hipmama. Fuck!
