I am really happy, excited, and emotional to finally release my first book. The book is based on my mother and I taking a stand against discrimination and hate for being African-American. We stood up and fought against one of the richest men in the world…Donald Sterling. My mother was a tenant at one of his properties called the Ardmore Apartments in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, CA. This book also covers our life story which involves courage, sadness, tears, pain, strength, dignity, and overcoming life obstacles. I hope this book will encourage everyone especially women of color, young teens that are growing up in harsh environments, and anyone that just need to know that they are not alone in their struggle to keep fighting and never listen to people who want to belittle you, put you down, and think you won’t become something in life. I am a real life product that you can achieve whatever you want if you are willing to keep getting up when other’s want to keep pushing you down! I hope you read my book and get empowered. I hope you share our story with someone who needs some encouragement in life. I hope you enjoy our story and tell friends and family. My mother passed away over 12 years ago and I miss her a lot but I know she wants me to share our story with you.
The print version of the book will be available on Amazon and Kindle after 10 pm PDT tonight. I look forward to getting feedback and hearing your thoughts our story!
Take care & enjoy the story!
