I remember watching movies; going to plays; and learning about Billie Holiday growing up. Such an interesting and beauti ful woman with a great voice. She also had a lot of sadness.
She received four posthumous Grammy awards, for Best Historical Album. She, herself, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame 1973.

Don’t get it twisted and think that phenomenal Black people in general, or phenomenal Black women in particular, only helped in the US or Africa.

Often it is argued that Black Americans are lazy. That we have no drive or determination. That all other marginalized groups enter the US and are successful, therefore it proves that we are shiftless and good for nothing.
As an author it is beat in your head to not write in passive voice. The argument goes that one performs the act and not have the act performed on them. Well…sometimes.
Have you heard or learned about redlining? Well, let me tell you something. In order to determine where and where not; who and who not to sell houses or give loans, banks would draw a redline to mark areas where banks would not make loans.
It’s not by mistake, it’s by design. This practice, now illegal, although I’m not sure for how long, meant that banks would offer loans to lower-income whites but not to middle and upper-income Blacks. Things that make you go hmm…?

Here’s a serious question and I am not asking this question to offend anyone. But, I’ve read statuses and comments from many white people who continually ask why do we keep bringing up slavery and it ended over 150 years ago. My question is, why do anyone follow their religious scriptures because depending on which scripture you follow they are at least 1435 years old.
Also, why are those from the south so stuck on the Confederate Flag? Why are we told to not forget about The Holocaust? According to the logic of those telling us to forget slavery, we weren’t there and had nothing to do with it.
Slavery is an integral part of US history and no matter how much people want to stick their heads in the sand about it, it was an institution that was not only back by the government of the United States, but it was even documented in the Constitution of the United States. I really want honest answers about this and no attacks or name calling.
Read how Daria handles foolishness like this at The Shoulders On Which I Stand – Pocket Sized Book or The Shoulders On Which I Stand – 6″ x 9″.
Amina N.’s debut novel Destiny is a must read. Amina wove a story of love and hate. She addressed the issue of domestic violence which prevalent in all communities and needs to stop. Be prepared to get angry. But, she showed through it all, faith helps people persevere. There were a few times in which confusion set in for me regarding characters or locations However, overall a great story and a must read.
While reading this book, I wonder to myself what would make a man want to hurt someone he professed to love? It is sad when a woman is scared to tell her family and friends what is happening in her house. As I read this book, I actually felt the pain and the tears. I look forward to reading more of her novels.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 star rating. Make sure to grab your copy as soon as you can, it is available via #Kindle and on #Amazon.

Have you ever seen dancing trees? Did it make you want to sit and watch or stand and join in on the dance. The movement of the trees were so fluid. The sway without effort with the wind. Their green leaves and brown branches move with the gracefulness of a ballerina.
These moving, dancing trees whose branches reach out into the cerulean blue sky with the white wisps of clouds made a Sunday a fun day.
