“Imagine Me: A Black Girl’s Journey coming of age in 1960’s Detroit” is the memoir of Brenda Fantroy-Johnson. She will tell her coming-of-age story “set during the height of the Civil Rights Movement…a time of music, baseball, and fishing on the Detroit River, a time of developing and discovering identity.”
Help us welcome Ms. Fantroy-Johnson, who now lives in Washington State, and hear her story.
