“For Little Girl this was a time of quiet, tremendously deep learning about the world and people—in the midst of it all, her character and, subsequently, a new personhood was being molded and developed. She was spending less and less time in the dark space beneath the spiral staircase and feeling more and more visible to people around her. She was unconsciously, way in the back of her mind, beginning to fathom the notion that there was something decidedly different about being Black in America.”—Anita D Russell


Writing this book is bringing back so many memories. Please pray for me as I dig deeper. I am so grateful for all my family and friends scattered all around Pittsburgh and beyond, especially those from Homestead.
