No woman, no song

Spelman college is a quiet oasis in the middle of lots of houses and boarded stores. It's early morning and I've come to the cafeteria to grab some breakfast before heading back to the airport: I'm on my way to France.
The cafeteria is still deserted and custodians are cleaning the floor of the corridor with the pictures of famous alumnae. Marvin Gaye is singing in the background and I see the three large women dancing and singing together "Sexual Heaaaling". They are all laughing and moving their heads in rhythm.
