  1. Hello, Kalisha! Can’t remember having read a whole book by any Black Author, more, perhaps, the pity. Have always marvelled at the prowess of our Black Brothers and Sisters in Sports, their Grace, and have appreciated many Black Actors and Actresses. 🙂

    Qua writers, Read some of Yours, of course, as well as on ‘Amoa’ in the blogs. Regards.
