Destiny’s Dilemma

THUMBNAIL_IMAGE

It was tough pretending not to be smart, but it was difficult pretending they were smart. Years as a journalist had taught her how to find out background information on just about anyone.  The truth was that the women were common and stupid, but still they had the power to destroy lives. She would have to watch herself around them.

 

 

An African American woman moved home to take care of her dying mother giving up the opportunity to experience a world beyond segregation. Zoraida Hughes Williams finds that some things have changed about her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas while some have stayed the same, like Hell’s Half Acre, an area where saloons, prostitution and gambling runs wild. Like most of the residents, she wants to keep her head down and stay away from trouble, but it comes in the unlikely form of an Anglo Baptist preacher. He messes up everything and almost gets them killed.

Her life was not turning out the way she has planned it. Instead of exploring a big city that promised lots of adventure, she was stuck in a small city relegated to a life of servitude. How could this be fair?

Thank you for your support

I want to say Thank you for supporting the Queens project to Jacklyn Deaver. You will help me tell the stories of women like Elizabeth Jane Crochrane who wrote under the name of Nellie Bly. She was a ground breaking reporter who took trips around the world and faked insanity for the story.
