About The Event
This book was never intended for release.
It is an amalgamation of diary entries I composed between the ages of twenty-one to twenty-four. It speaks of the experiences that many young women go through. A collection of poetry about life: Generational trauma, grief, heartbreak, politics, family, hope, feminism, race, diaspora and love.
The Shadow of my Ancestral Tree is the reason why I am alive. My blood, tears and sweat lace every word written within. This book is about breaking generational trauma and paying homage to those who broke their backs planting trees, so that we would feel their shade. This book is about change, making our story about hope rather than sorrow.
This is a book for the voiceless.
I have a story to tell.
