Previous Page Parent Page Next Page "The Big Deal - is a card game, is the Mabo issue, is a land deal, but it all comes back to being BLACK and living in the city, and all the roads that lead you here. Don�t intend to turn this into any opportunity for any convenient misinformed labelling by any readers. All this BIG DEAL is about letting you see something of us on our terms. This is about being a Black woman - you might be mother, sister, aunt, cousin, daughter, friend - no difference, the DEAL is the same." (Brenda L. Croft 1993)
