Author of "YOU JUST DON'T WAKE UP STRONG" A STORY OF SURVIVAL, ENDURANCE, AND TENACITY. HE IS A SURVIVOR.
I believe that we need to be transparent, honest and ready to talk about topics that make us uncomfortable.
Interview with Carona Davis Diop, Chief in Editor of Split/Screen Magazine.
On February 27 2010, I lost my son Reggie to street violence. He was only 17 years old.
On the year 2016 I was invited to join the Convalescences Group, founded by Rodney Gilbert. He brought together women who lost their children to gun and street violence, not only in Newark, but all of New Jersey.
Months later we met again at Rutgers University-Newark for a creative writing class. A creative writing class, and what this class has to do with us? You may ask. For the first time we wrote through grief, hence the title of the class, "Writing through Grief." As we sat there telling our stories, sharing our pain and connecting, I had an idea.
Our stories are in the need to be told. Yes, the world needs to know we are grieving mothers that want to hold each other, counsel each other and be there for each other regardless the condition or matter in which our child had died. We were connected for life.
Newark Speaks 2U, Professor Jennifer Wager and Fernando Dilsa, are making it possible for our stories to be told. I will also like to thank groups like "Mothers in Charge," "Newark Anti Violence Coalition," and Mr. Lawrence Hamm for supporting us.
Mr. Lawrence Hamm, (Civil Rights Activist, Humanitarian, Lecturer) Hamm has been a relentless advocate for African-American people and the cause of human rights for more than 30 years. Raised in Newark New Jersey, he attended public schools and emerged at age 17 as a forceful and articulate spokesperson for the educational needs and aspirations of Newark students and the community.
We hope to help others through this documentary, we hope that we are able to build bridges and I hope people start getting involve in building stronger communities.
A MEMOIR OF PEACE AND ACCEPTANCE.
MENTAL ILLNESS IS REAL, BIPOLAR IS REAL. WE NEED AWARENESS AND WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO DEAL WITH INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE SUFFERING THROUGH BOUTS OF MANIC EPISODES, DEPRESSION AND OTHER MOOD DISORDERS THAT AFFECT OUR LIVES. I WROTE THIS BOOK FOR PEOPLE THAT ASSUME THEY DON'T AFFECT OUR DAILY LIVES WITH THEIR BEHAVIOR.
