Delores King-Freeman, (Dee
to family), is a motivated and compelling poet and author, who left the south
during the sixties to follow her dream, which proved extremely elusive. Now, finally living that dream, she happily
immerses herself in her passion-writing.
Freeman has previously published a well received book of poetry entitled
“Oceans of Love: To Us From Us”. She provides The New Citizens Press (a
newspaper distributed throughout Michigan)
with its’ ‘Nu’ poetry column. She has published numerous other poems; many
of which have been recognized with awards for their inspirational, even
motivational message. Occasionally, she
provides The Lansing State Journal with an article or word of inspiration. She co-hosts “poetry slams” held at various locations
throughout the Greater Lansing area.
Freeman looks forward to expanding her Poetree-N-Motion
program which has a 30 minute time slot on a local PA station. She is also a talented musical lyricist,
hoping to have her work recorded in the near future. Presently, Freeman is working on her first
fiction novel, to be published by the end of 2005. That will be followed by the remainder of the
“Poetry, She Wrote” series- books of inspiration, motivation and romance.
Freeman thoroughly enjoys writing
and sharing her poetry through presentations at special annual luncheons,
tributes honoring the leadership of community and churches, and at other venues
throughout the region. She honestly
feels her words will benefit all who read them-gently touching, softly soothing,
delightfully awakening, enthusiastically illuminating and fervently healing.
As a grandparent, Freeman sees
the need for help within the community.
She volunteers for HOSTS- Helping Our Students to Succeed-an organization
that solicits aid in tutoring the elementary children. She works on projects with the Michigan
Million Women Movement that sprang out of the MWM (Million Women March) of 1997. She’s a member of several supporting
organizations, such as Marguerite Press, Disilgold
Publishing and C&B Books Distributions. She also sings with a 35 voice
group, who continues to keep the Negro Spirituals alive-The Earl Nelson
An alumnus of Northwood
University of Midland, a former Financial Analyst for General Motors, Freeman
continues to reside in Lansing, Michigan
with her husband, Myron, who is an attorney.
She is the proud mother of three adult children, one of which has
attained stardom as an actress on Broadway.
