Love is why - my first book is a 512 page non-linear experimental storytelling piece: A thank you to my childhood mentors, four black gentlemen I met on Maxwell Street, and Malcolm X. The book is the visualization of their teachings, and the conversations I had with them growing up on the South Side of Chicago.
This is the audio version. Non-linear memory fragments of sound put together in a collage of innocence to mirror the book.
100% of the proceeds from the book went to purchasing laptops for the Brooklyn Democracy Academy. BDA is a transfer high school for over-age and under-credited students in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
Last year their students lost their beloved principal Dez-Ann Romain to COVID. She was 36-years-young. Working with BDA's current principal Yesenia Peralta and Dean Doyle LaShawn we raised over 27K to buy laptops for the students and iPads for the faculty.
