This Bestselling raw & compelling 21st century Historical & Cultural Heritage Biography is a searing coming-of-age story in which we follow Author, Social Activist social and Bumpy Johnson's illegitimate granddaughter in her quest for meaning, safety and self-identity. Growing up Black and Biracial in a dysfunctional, abusive, prejudiced and racist white French-Canadian Catholic family in Maine during the 80's was not easy. Mulatto: Daughter of America details her harrowing conversion at age 5; when she was suddenly thrust into a terrifying world of ritualistic child-abuse, sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse, bullying and fear.

After leaving her black father, her white mother marries a cruel and sadistic ex-military, white pedophile who breaks up her loving multicultural family and begins a reign of terror that destroys her childhood. At age 12 she is forced to flee to escape across the country to escape the abuse. Her twisted relationship with her white mother completely deteriorates when her mother fails to protect her and simply gives her away at age 13. The author shares her life-shattering growth experiences during her teen years, as she travels across Maine in a never-ending slew of foster homes, juvenile halls, halfway houses and experimental MK Ultra schools until her emancipation at age 16.

Discovering her biological father is both African-American and the purported illegitimate son of the late Harlem gangster Bumpy "Ellison" Johnson is a turning point in her life. All of the secrets and lies she was raised under suddenly make sense. She allows herself to fall under the tutelage of her Uncle Mal ("Shorty" ) Jarvis, close childhood best friend of Malcolm X immortalized in Alex Haley's "Malcolm X" his character played by Spike Lee. Her Uncle enters her life at a time when she struggles with self-esteem and self-identity issues and he helps her understand her place in Black culture and US history. This Memoir is about adolescent struggle, yearning, and dreams.

The author's ultimate survival and success attests to the power of the human spirit to transcend years of abuse, pain, identity and struggle. The book details, through trial and error, set to music of the era, how the Author managed to overcome every obstacle put in her path and still manage to achieve a personal transformation that enables her to realize her dreams. At an early age she was a social activist and leader at an Orwellian experimental school meant to break her spirit. Her story proves that a horrific past does not have to determine ones future. Her modern day civil rights Memoir is a blue-print for how to develop self-esteem through prayer, music, books, books and writing. This inspirational read emphasizes the importance of role models and building self-confidence one step at a time.
