Behind Each Window, A Voice
I did not really understand who I was until I left my country. Years ago, while living abroad, I was made painfully aware by several European, South American and African friends that I was not “African American” but obviously, completely and simply an American. "Even though you look like you could be from Israel, Yemen, Brazil, Egypt, or the Dominican Republic", one friend informed me, "it is absolutely certain that you are unmistakably an American woman. There is something about the way you walk……." he said, "like you own the world, unquestionably American!" This series explores the theme of Identity, how people place themselves in the American cultural landscape.
