    Everyone talks about abuse including me but doesn’t give ways to HELP or GET HELP. I’m really grateful you did this. I know when I wrote my memoirs 20+ years ago I was so heavily triggered my agent should have helped me get support. It can retraumatize you.

    In support of MLK Day (saw your post reviewing), my liberation theologian mother had a mentor who worked with King Senior. Once my mom’s priest brought him to preach and King asked “For white people ot black people?” The priest said “Black” and it was amazing. But an interesting question.

    1. Thank you so much Heather. I so agree with you about the ttiggring that occurs when we write our memoirs. I just finished writing mine and it was very traumatizing. During King’s time, many people did not like him. And certain audiences were not receptive to his message which may be why he asked that question. Is Kathryn Johnson your mother?

        No, she’s Episcopalian priest Jeanette Tweedie. Did a lot in Haiti during revolution, cleaned up sexual predators in the church, fought to get the church to be more ecological. Like most activists, she was treated like crap for demanding justice.
