I AM FROM Chicago’s southside, from Jackson, McKenzie, and Cain – BEGINNINGS

I AM FROM holiday dinners, turn tables and keyboards, game nights, front porch comedy shows, church all day, and dance routines to house music – MEMORIES

I AM FROM natural hair to a jerri curl, to a relaxer to dreads, but I am not my hair – TRANSITION

I AM FROM a father who transcends roles and leads with comedic confidence, the undisputed holder of the title – BLACK JACK

I AM FROM a mother who lived and died my superwoman, the strongest woman that I know – BEATRICE

I AM FROM Kenny, Malcolm, and Brian, masters of altruism, music, and logic – MY NORTH STARS

I AM FROM dreaded chances anchored down by fear, painful goodbyes, divorce, lost opportunities, and love discovered too late, yet I rise – PHOENIX

I AM FROM Cora, Denise, Big Momma, Barbara, blood and best friends  – FAMILY

I AM FROM Rashawn, Nina, and Caleb – PURPOSE

I AM FROM Race for a Cure, the strength of chemotherapy, the hope to survive, but the absence of science to make the difference – DISILLUSIONMENT

I AM FROM Dr. Daniel Omotosho Black – MAESTRO

I AM FROM The River Where Blood is BornASPIRATION

I AM FROM Fahrenheit 451, The Alchemist, “Invictus”, “George Gray”, and “The Oak and the Reed” – INSPIRATION

I AM FROM “Belief makes things real” – REBIRTH

I AM FROM we move forward but it stays with us – HOPE

I AM FROM you are all that I want – LOVE

I AM FROM last birthdays, first times, sails unfurled, and the road less traveled – EXPERIENCE

I AM FROM “the upside of being an introvert, where extroverts are overrated, the charms of the quiet child, where big personalities may get the applause but reserve can be a gift, and a little shyness can be OK” – ACCEPTANCE

I AM FROM writing to find my way home – THE JOURNEY

I AM FROM I fall down but I get up, cop an attitude, avoid the mainstream, dreams don’t stop, infinite reflection and fearless discovery; balancing hope and actuality; fighting “restlessness and vague desire” – DETERMINATION

All things collective, I AM PROMISE
