Bonnie shares her incredible story about the power of love, family, and legacy and how these helped her overcome the chaos that not only surrounded her in the Jim Crow south, but also boiled inside her own soul.
Nana always told little Bonnie that she had the feet of a princess. Her small, perfect feet meant that she was something special. Nana also drilled into little Bonnie that the most important things she could have were an education and Jesus, because those are the only two things nobody could ever take away.
Set in a middle class neighborhood in Wilmington, Delaware during the time of Sputnik, fall-out shelters, desegregation and the civil rights movement, The Feet of a Princess is a front-row seat to a different type of Negro family during an era that history has yet to address. This heartwarming memoir will show how the words and teachings of family can transform the soul of anyone willing to open their ears to the messages, even years later. Once you open this book, you won’t be able to put it down.
