Dove Joyner, a long-time teacher of various grade levels who, driven by her passion for helping children, formed a nonprofit organization, African American Family Institute, has completed her new book “A Sharecropper’s Daughter: Memoires”: a gripping and potent account of how African American stories can provide crucial historical context for understanding American culture.

Published by Page Publishing, Dove Joyner’s stirring tale shines a light on the life of the author’s African American family during the 1950s to the 1990s, which pulls back the curtain, exposing, at least in part, what has created the United States as it stands today. At a time when the United States grapples with controversial, hot-button issues such as gun control, violence between citizens, and giving reparations to the descendants of former slaves, stories like the author’s book, in coordination with established historical commentaries, are significant for understanding the role that race plays in society.

It is well known that one’s environment growing up impacts the molding and shaping of their life, allowing people to see the root causes for the social issues that face society on a daily basis. Every seed planted into ripe soil and nurtured will yield a harvest of its own kind such as delicious peaches, delightful berries, or, most importantly, love. The same is true with negative impacts to the human mind and soul, whether it be child molestation, hatred, or evil of any kind, unless that soul seeks a higher power, faith in God, to alter that established pathway.

In overcoming childhood abuse, poverty, and pitfalls of many types, the author of this groundbreaking book pushed back against the oppressive forces that pulled her downward, refusing to give up, always reassuring herself that she will persevere. The author’s inspiring story is a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit to overcome adversity, affirmatively proving that with God’s help, “Where there is a will, there is a way, and thereby, all things are possible.”

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “A Sharecropper’s Daughter: Memoires” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
