Tough Subject

Tracy McKnightTracy M., Oakland, CA

Aziza Ashanti tackled a tough subject in order to bring light to ongoing struggles in our nation.  The problem of incest exists in all nationalities and across all lines of social class and religions.  Although this is a work of fiction, it could easily be considered an accounting of several lives all rolled into one story.  It so clearly expresses how family generations perpetuate years of horrible traditions and mentality.

This creation is wrought with pain, anguish, desperation, and hope.  It’s also a declaration of the ugly truth about family incest and it’s effects.

The main character should be considered a ray of hope to people still trapped in this situation.  Like the subtitle indicates, There Is A Way Out.  Consider his path and free yourself.
