About The Author

Chicago’s Glass Wall (Drowning in the Storm of Racism) is a memoir that tells the story

of a family’s struggle of the raw, uncut, untold truth while living on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois.

With such a roller coaster of emotions for Social Justice, these stories will make you laugh, cry, and

have empathy as it takes you from heart-breaking to heart-warming. Many Chicagoans, especially

African Americans, re financially crippled, while “Drowning in the Storm of Racism.”

You will also enjoy the stories as it describes the beautiful city of Chicago as a “City Within a City,”

sometimes referred to as the “Windy City.” There is an historical account as it takes you on a journey

through some of Chicago’s memoirs from the past until today. Those who live on the South Side of

Chicago’s Glass Wall are divided from the rest of the city and have experienced poverty,

riots, racism, and other discrimination throughout their life. Every year the “Glass Wall” is

extended further north by political design, and impoverished minorities are living in a

society that continues to treat them like second-class citizens in a first-class nation. For

decades racism, and poverty have been structured by political design.


“You have done a remarkable job detailing racial injustices, both past and present, something that is critical to understand if we are to move forward as a civilized society. I can tell that you have spent countless hours with your subject matter too. You have presented your material in a way that just about anyone can understand and benefit from reading it, thanks to the fact that you have really considered your audience. You have presented details that add to the credibility of your writing and really do come across as an expert in your work. The narrative voice is simply great, and easy to follow, and adding your own personal story and paying tribute to those we have lost only enhances your message. Chicago’s Glass Wall provides historical knowledge that many people, especially Chicagoans, need to know. This story is truly eye-opening. I have to say that you have put together an excellent piece.
