Brenda Fantroy-Johnson - Imagine Me

Imagine Me by Brenda Fantroy-Johnson


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. Wanting regular people who struggle to have hope, Brenda Fantroy-Johnson wrote her memoir to show it is possible to get out from under hardships.
