    Momma I Should Have Listened: A Voice of Pain and Power

    Mother and Inspirational Speaker Pens Memoir with Efforts to Prevent Real Life Tragedies After 17-Year-Old Son Sentenced to Forty Years as a First-Time Offender

    “Suddenly and without warning, I was inducted into an assembly line with parents with incarcerated children.”

    -New Orleans, Louisiana –October 20, 2017 – In the African American community, seventy-two percent of Black Children are raised in a single-parent household. According to the Huffington Post, one in every three black males born today can expect to go to prison at some point in their life, compared with one in every six Latino males, and one in every seventeen white males, and the current incarceration trends continue. Momma I Should Have Listened: A Voice of Pain and Power is a riveting, emotional and powerful inspirational memoir that will have you feeling the heartache, pain, and adversity that a multitude of parents are experiencing but do not have the voice to speak about.

    How can an astute multi-talented writer, actor, and dancer who studied at one of the highest ranked all boys’ school end up with a forty-year sentence for Aggravated Robbery? The Author and her son navigate you through an unexpected journey of their life; the life that looked perfect on the exterior but was shattered on the interior. This memoir narrates a realistically sad and compelling story and shares an honest tale to find acceptance in an unfair and devastating occurrence. It is a story that brings awareness to an epidemic that is affecting an unacceptable amount of Americans by the minute.

    “I truly was intrigued with reading this book. It was a book that you didn’t want to put down because it was like the author was having a private conversation with you. I learned so much about the justice system, parental ups and downs, the emotional break down, coming to grips with a situation and the Love that always conquers all. I will definitely recommend this book for others to read.”

    “By far the most powerful part of this book is its illustration of the loving bond between a mother and her son that cannot be broken even by prison bars. I found myself wiping away tears as I read the heartbreaking poems of BJ a young man serving a 40 year prison sentence for robbery with a toy gun. His mother’s anguish of navigating the prison and criminal justice system while trying to love and forgive her son but not excusing his crime. They both show great capacity for love, perseverance and a desire to help others avoid their path into the world of incarceration.”
