Many stories matter...
Hello Friends and Precious Backers,
i have just watched a talk by the Nigerian novelist Chimananda Adichie
I was deeply inspired. She says:
" Stories matter, many stories matter...stories can be used to empower, stories can be used to humanize, stories can brake dignity, stories can repair broken dignity.
When we realize there is never a single story about any place, or any time, we regain a kind of paradise"
That's what I mean when I say "Free My Story", my story is a woman's life story that was hijacked by many men (I have been included without permission in at least 10 books) in order to construct stories about the downfall of my generation.
I have been used to create a myth about my involvement with Leary and this, at times, has broken my dignity. However my spirit is strong and eager for the life force. That is why I offer this book as a healing for myself and many others who treasure dignity and freedom.
Free this woman's story by backing this project and let your friends know about this,
Stories matter, many stories matter...
