How does a young black teen bump heads with America decades after slavery? How does she survive womanhood in spite of post-traumatic slave syndrome? Is she able to overcome the bitterness of becoming a single mother? Abondoned child? Broken hearted? How does she maneuver through self hate? How does she overcome low self esteem? Abuse? Sexism? Racism? Poverty? What tragedies might she face in a community of hurt people who also hurt each other? How does she define herself in a world that has already attempted to define her? How does she inspire others to work through their own pain and love again? Uncover her journey with this 20 year collection of performance poems that vividly chronicles the healing stories of a young black woman who used poetry as her weapon to tackle her innermost encounters from her teenage years to present time.
