Recently, I started reading several books for women and young girls because every other month or so, I get a speaking engagement to speak to a group of teen ladies mostly but sometimes college students. What I appreciate about this audio book is the fact Taraji narrated her own story and the realness of who she is and her upbringing comes out. I am a fan of actual books and audio books. Taraji called her dad to tell him that she was pregnant while still in college and she was terrified of his upcoming response, but his response was noteworthy: Dad was silent But only for a beat , no doubt letting the news sink in. A baby is a blessing. This is going to be your strength right here. Taraji then boyfriend and father of her son hit her one day and she called her dad to come take care of him. This is my daughter you hit.

Posted on January 14, 1 comment When does art and self-expression become just plain gross? And who defines it? I learned this from an extremely unlikely source. I interviewed a guy in one of my classes who I thought had the most fascinating form of self-expression I had ever seen. This dude allowed someone to heat an iron and attach it to his skin, so that it will burn to the point where he would have a permanent scar. Our professor was grossed out to the max when she saw it, and said it reminded her of how they would punish African slaves.
The rest of the class thought it was plain stupid. As I interviewed him this person who I previously thought was a bit scary, I realized this was not solely the actions of an over-zealous fraternity member, but a person striving for acceptance and validity in a culture where the bond between friends is institutionalized and extends from generation to generation.
