Don’t Let Them Tell Your Story
Lakesha Mathis


I am very moved by your post, “Whatever you do, don’t let them tell your story to you. . .” I am deep in the middle of telling the story of an ancient ancestor of mine who never got to tell her story. The story they tell about her is misguided, mean and just wrong. Your words speak to her history exactly. So good to hear another writer describe it so well.
