Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley was the first person that I wrote about and featured on Brains Books Beauty. Writing gives you the ability to travel freely in the mind without moving your feet. He's shown that in his books and profound storytelling. "Write your truth and believe in it." Walter Mosley is an incredible and inspirational writer. He started his career in his late 30s showing that there are no limitations to fulfilling your dreams. Keep steady and grow higher. Slow and steady are key factors to true mastery. Commitment, consistency and practice by perfecting your craft. I am a student of Walter Mosley body of work and ethic. Living in reality and writing fiction is a great way to balance, open your mind, create and explore. Walter Mosley is teaching a Masterclass on Fiction and Storytelling. Teaching how to "write better, think deeper".  "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Gratitude Mr Walter Mosley

Anna Malaika Tubbs

 Anna Malaika Tubbs "The storyteller influences the story" She is an advocate, author, educator and scholar.  The Three Mothers was well written from a maternal, wholesome place and while expressing gratitude. I was curious how the families of the men were affected by the experience during that time, how did each parent develop a way to cope or is grief ongoing? The amount of strength, perseverance and grace is admirable as motherhood is eternal.  The mothers of the three gentlemen were significant in their sons lives. It's thoughtful that Anna chose to write from their perspective as well as including their family while doing research and putting together the book. It's valuable information, in depth learning experience and connection.  This month we celebrate Black History Month and in March we celebrate Women's History Month A special tribute to the m others of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin. Thank you Anna Malaika Tubbs for highlighting
