Michael K Williams


 


"I've been blessed to make a career out of doing what I love, but the environment from where I came, the conditions of my youth, the trauma that still lives inside of me, and the struggles that nearly broke me connect me with so many others, I want to tell my story not because it's unique but because it is not" 

Scenes From My Life is a well written memoir by Michael K. Williams with Jon Sternfeld. I read the book in two days as I was intrigued by the lifestyle of Michael K. Williams, with depth and descriptive form of storytelling. The book takes you on a journey through highlights and harsh realities. I enjoyed watching Michael K Williams on television series Law and Order , the Wire, Black Market and after reading this book I learned more about the human experience, the black experience, thoughtfulness and grew even more appreciation for his character both on and off camera. 

Thank you for creating a body of work and being an open book. We have a see the world through the eyes of a "wounded healer".

Skin of the Sea

Natasha Bowen author of Skin of the Sea.  A way to survive. A way to serve. A way to save. Simi prayed to the gods, once. Now she serves them as Mami Wata—a mermaid—collecting the souls of those who die at sea and blessing their journeys back home.   But when a living boy is thrown overboard, Simi goes against an ancient decree and does the unthinkable—she saves his  life . And punishment awaits those who dare to defy the gods.   To protect the other Mami Wata, Simi must journey to the Supreme Creator to make amends. But all is not as it seems. There’s the boy she rescued, who knows more than he should. And something is shadowing Simi, something that would rather see her fail. . . .   Danger lurks at every turn, and as Simi draws closer, she must brave vengeful gods, treacherous lands, and legendary creatures. Because if she fails, she risks not only the fate of all Mami Wata, but also the world as she knows it. Resource:  https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/609878/skin-of-the-sea

Misty Copeland: Black Ballerinas

  " This is for anyone who has searched to find his or her reflection. For our forebears, who laid the foundation but could only dream of our accomplishments. And for the future of ballet, in hopes that it would continue striving to be better, to see us, hear us, and to celebrate us." -M.C.
