Ask yourself "who am I" and you will begin to appreciate the answers given by the participants in Our America Writers Project. Conceived and directed by Bea Gyimah, a professor at Baton Rouge Community College, the project is based on that simple challenge. The answers came back as essays and as poems, drawn from truth-saying moments of honest reflection. There've been two books published with these stories, stories of growing up ... and growing in ...the mixed bag that we call America. Here are four of them, two in poetry, two in prose. All from the heart.
