If The People Could Fly

Doriana Diaz




This is a holistic idea of what could happen if Black people could take flight.


My name is Doriana Diaz. I am a writer based in Philadelphia. I am the self-published author of Mami Calls Me Gabriella and Sunphases, both released in 2018. My words have appeared in platforms such as; Nappy Head Club, Black Women Radicals, GROW/N Mag, Saddie Baddies, SYLA Studio, Black Girl Magik, We Heal Too, The Kraal, and many more! I believe words have DNA, they sit under our skin, erupting into soft and vivid explosions through our veins like lighting. My writing is an exploration of cultural agency, archival documentation, and rhythms

of resistance and expansion.
