Afro Forever

Transformation In Loree’s Beauty Shop hot combs sizzled against wet oily scalps branding grown woman fantasies into tender young heads. Thick busy afros became long glossy black curls transforming natural Black queens into commercial mahogany princesses (Boyd, 14). This poem by Julia Boyd from In the Company of My Sisters is tragic, but it happens all the time. Afros and natural hair are transformed into something artificial, “fake boobs, fake hair, men don’t seem to care whether a woman is real or false.” The hair salon is the main site where the transformation happens. This paper accompanies the web-based project Salon Utopia (now defunct) that aimed to transform its clients in a natural way. In the virtual realm, it is not yet possible to do any hairstyles to transform anyone, but the site did aid in transforming the source where the hair comes from, the mind.

A unique approach to limning through the letters, words, and spaces on the page to convey the personal narratives of an array of women and men for whom praise follows success. The author, Kakonge, conducts a series of interviews with individuals as diverse as creative souls – singers, dancers, writers, even creative entrepreneurs – and providers of seemingly prosaic medical services as well as personal coaches and motivational speakers. Their lived experiences reflected upon, lessons learned and goals, both personal and professional achieved; their talents met reality and vanquished all. Truly inspiring for those seeking change. – Dr. Marion Gold, ABD, Hag and Crone

How To Talk To Crazy People

Brilliantly written with such clarity that I immerse myself in the emotional roller coaster ride with Donna. Honest and open, heart-wrenching at times. When Donna finds that there is no money in her account, she is left feeling helpless and powerless but did not let that defeat her. She struggles over every hurdle and is not defeated. Leaves my heartbeat thumping, and anxious to know where the next page would take me. A bittersweet account of what it is like to live with ‘craziness’ in a world of ‘normal’ people. This rare booking helps us to understand the daily internal struggles of living with depression and how the health care community, here and in Africa approaches and treats it. (Her aunt locking the door?. (The use of Haladol, in Africa) even with the knowledge that only second-hand and third-hand medicines are sent from America and Europe to Africa?)

How to Write Creative Non-fiction – New

Creative non-fiction is the type of writing that people like Truman Capote, Gay Talese, Joan Didion, Tom Wolfe, John McPhee, and Hunter S. Thompson made famous. It’s the type of writing where the research is rich and multi-layered, the writing is dramatic and literary, you can take several points of view and have more freedom than with traditional journalism – or you can choose to stick to “just the facts” with a sprinkle of imagination for garnish. It differs from traditional journalism in that you don’t always have to take an objective stance in the research, reporting, and writing. What you read in the front pages of newspapers is traditional journalism in democratic nations. Reporters and editors have a written rule to deliver “just the facts, ma’am.” The key element with this type of journalism is that you can be creative, but still tell the truth. It gives you the chance to be more of an artist with your writing, while still protecting the craft of journalism.

Donna Kakonge plans to come out with more books along these tunes since she has a large music collection mainly acquired with the help of the Toronto Public Library borrowing system and downloads from iTunes. Donna Kakonge also has a piano, an African drum, and a guitar and would like to start exploring her own musical talents in her spare time.

Digital Journals and Numerology by Donna Kay Kakonge, M.A. available through Amazon Kindle.

This book is meant to emphasize how powerful keeping a journal can be with the aid of numerology. I started writing one at the age of seven and keeping a journal has been a constant for me – more than some friends, some jobs and some family members. I used to get a thrill selecting my journals to write in. Now I have decided to try something new by using the computer that I already spend so much time on and money to show how powerful keeping any journal…even a digital journal can be. Using the principles of numerology can also help in chronicling your life.
