The book’s title is a reflection of Ashay’s childhood and her exposure to the newspaper, Elijah Speaks. She references it as a tribute to her father and uncle who were community activists in the 1960s.
This book emphasizes the cross-pollination of the Black Holocaust, The Holocaust, American enslavement of Africans and the black victims of the Jim Crow era in America. Mathieu shows the parallels of sadness, hideous, plights of these cultures.
Mathieu balances her voice of social justice with a softer passionate cadence for life, music, and love. It will encourage the human spirit to excel during difficult times.
