Releasing and distributing my new CD, a series of poems about my last two years in San Diego.

About this project

I'm raising funds to continue my life's work...illuminating and illustrating the life and times of the Black woman in her journey through life. This CD is more personal than the previous four...it's my personal exploration of my life and the changes I've gone through since I moved to San Diego just two years ago. It's also a very different, more definitive voice.

This money will also let me create a "war chest" of CDs and chapbooks that create revenue that will fund other projects; among them, allowing me to mentor, through workshops and recording, the careers of other women poets. I'll also be creating a bigger audience base by touring with this album/chapbook, taking other women poets that I've trained along so that they learn that part of their craft.
