Open Mic: A Lifetime Trilogy
Throughout my life, I have felt like I have been living three separate lives, each with their own demands, expectations, biases, myths, lies, truths, misconceptions and on it all goes, never being seen as one person. Spin the wheel and see where I land. Am I black today, leaving my female and lesbian self out of the picture? Spin again. Nope, I'm still only one-third of who I am whole. This is a trilogy of life: youth, experience and wisdom; black, female and lesbian; vulnerable, struggling, and rising. Regardless, there is still only one of me.
