Memoirs of a Party Girl : And the Beat Goes On: Poetry and Prose for the Mind and Soul
Who Turned On the Lights Welcome to round 2 of the memoirs! In the first book, the music had been stopped and last call had been made. The sun was making its entrance and we were making our way to the door-- away from the superficial strobes and into the cleansing (though sometimes, harsh) light of truth. As these are memoirs, we are still exploring the inner workings of a party girl and her reluctance to leave the dance floor. This time around we more closely examine life as a woman. A black woman. In America. We push for greatness and see the hope in all things. And last, we explore ground-level emotions and raw pain in the wake of Michael Brown's murder on August 9, 2014 at approximately 12:00pm. Just when you thought that you'd had enough of the dance, someone grabs your hand and you realize something: although the music has stopped, your surroundings are now illuminated, and as a result... The beat goes on.
