Brenda Fantroy-Johnson: Imagine Me


"Imagine Me" is a riveting story of a young black girl’s journey growing up in the early ‘60s. The setting is Detroit where dreams are formed from life experiences within a city ghetto. A coming-of-age story set during the height of the civil rights movement, this was a time of music, baseball, and fishing on the Detroit river, a time of developing and discovering identity. This memoir gives a detailed accounting of how a self-described “good girl” copes with early tragedies of childhood loss and abandonment.
