About The Event

From the author:

"In My AfroRican State of Soul I take you on a profound odyssey, weaving together narrative

nonfiction and poetry to chronicle the transformative journey of my life. It all begins with my

childhood, where I carried the weight of an enigmatic father haunted by PTSD, making it

difficult for him to be truly present in my life. As I grew into adulthood, I found solace in this

paternal void, using it as a foundation to construct an artistic vision that celebrates identidad,

struggle, love, and faith. This ethos has resonated deeply across the expanse of the United States,

touching the hearts of many. Throughout the pages of this book, I share my experiences, shaping

a narrative that intertwines raw emotions and creative expression, leaving readers with a

profound understanding of the human spirit."
