Author LG Powell Sheds Light on the Boogie Down Bronx
In this riveting memoir, Powell gives her account of her life and the events that transpired from a very different perspective then what the media has been led to believe.
Powell says, "During most of my coming of age years, I felt like a kid in a candy store looking in and watching what was transpiring on the other side of the glass. I tell Resilience from that perspective."
After surviving an abduction and child abuse as a toddler, she came of age in the Boogie Down Bronx during the turbulent 70's and witnessed the creation of the World of Hip Hop right outside her back door.
LG Powell's story provides readers with a hopeful outlook on a resilient woman's will to overcome child abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence through her own spiritual awakening, while also focusing on the era of the 70's and the role music played throughout all parts of her life.
Readers are calling "Resilience: We Don't Stop," brave, honest, raw and hard to put down. One reviewer said, "Although autobiographical, Resilience: We Don't Stop could be any and every woman's story."
"Resilience: We Don't Stop" first released in August 2017 on the cusp of the, now viral, #metoo movement serves as a captivating topic of conversation that elevates the gravity of this platform and encourages women of all ages and eras to write their story. This isn't just her story of resilience, it's all women's story of struggle, strength and the will to persevere.
It's also an in-depth look at how the music of the 70s not only saved the Bronx, but brought so many with it into the light. For anyone wondering where Hip Hop originated, and who the real Kings of Hip Hop were, they'll finally get the truth to that question and more within this memoir.
