The author of this book was born a little brown girl in West Palm Beach, Florida in the intense
year of 1981. Anjinette Hudson was an awkward yet intelligent child who found comfort in books
and words. Through books and poetry as early as elementary school she received confidence
through the worlds and words of Langston Hughes, Sonia Sanchez, Judy Blume, Maya
Angelou, June Jordan, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and so many more.
