About the Book

Delores King-Freeman voices deep love for her people in these poems. Her utmost belief is that love for self is the fundamental key to the survival and revival of a people grossly wronged, demeaned, dehumanized and partially destroyed. Her passionate plea is for universal love.

Her words are powerful and thought-provoking; some informative; some sympathetic; some stimulating; some frank and to the point; some highlight the real deal on self-love; some talk to what is owed to us; some make it known that we owe much to ourselves; some are fun loving; but all echo the black experience.

Delores emphasizes our ancestors are yet watching-hoping to see signs of victory over hatred imbedded within us during those inhumane slavery years. She states each generation is an investment in life, as the lives of our fore fathers influence ours today; and our evolution will be the foundation for our heirs. Each person has a duty to live, love and leave a legacy.

The poems can be of great benefit – touching, healing, awakening, and soothing. They encourage involvement. All can enjoy life’s journey, even though a risk . . . a tumultuous sea of ups and downs . . . it is yet a necessity. Enjoy the ride!

About the Author

Dee Freeman, a native Arkansian, left the south during the sixties to follow her dream, which proved extremely elusive. Now, finally closing in on that dream, she happily immerses herself in her passion – writing. She provides The Plexus (a local newspaper, with distribution throughout Michigan) with its’ poetry Korner. Her goal, to finish her first fiction novel before the end of 2002, is on track, as well as her planned series of Poetry, She Wrote books of inspiration, motivation and romance.

Delores thoroughly enjoys writing and sharing her poetry through presentations at special annual luncheons, for tributes honoring the leadership of community and churches, and at other functions held throughout Lansing and surrounding areas. She’s had a number of poems published, and has plans to provide some lyrics for musical recordings. She sincerely hopes her words will benefit all who read them-gently touching, softly soothing, fervently healing, enthusiastically motivating, and delightfully awakening.

Delores, a former financial analyst for General Motors, resides in Lansing, Michigan with her husband, Myron, as their three children left the next a number of years ago.
