Feminist folk icon Ani Difranco releases an updated apology after organizing a songwriting retreat on a plantation.
it has taken me a few days but i have been thinking and feeling very intensely and i would like to say i am sincerely sorry. it is obvious to me now that you were right - all those who said we can't in good conscience go to that place and support it or look past for one moment what it deeply represents. i needed a wake up call and you gave it to me.
it was a great oversight on my part to not request a change of venue immediately from the promoter. you tried to tell me about that oversight and i wasn't available to you. i'm sorry for that too.
know that i am digging deeper.
what kind of iconic stepping up, tbh...
