Akua Fayette signs new book "The Healing of a Broken Spirit"

This event has been rescheduled to Sunday, November 22, at 1 p.m. Artist and writer Akua Fayette will sign and discuss her book “The Healing of a Broken Spirit” at the Community Artists’ Collective, Sunday, October 25, at 1 p.m.

Playwright Thomas Meloncon will moderate the conversation with Fayette.

The book is written from the eyes and the heart of the writer and tells the healing process of her personal journey through life. She has used her talents as a writer and an artist to demonstrate that pursuing the truth has released her of negative feelings of past events.

Fayette was born the tenth child in her family in the segregated area of the Fifth Ward in Houston. She shares her life events and how many of the answers to her questions were answered by a spiritual stranger.

A poet, symbolic artist, author, storyteller, art teacher, inspirational public speaker and community activist, Fayette provides an understanding of how the spirit can be broken during one’s lifetime. She reveals how children process inner feelings and are sometimes burdened by them, even in situations where they have no control. She explains that African Americans must go back to the roots of their existence and get what belongs to them—the whole spirit, the blessing of being free in mind and body, knowing the difference between how and where they survive and how and where they thrive.

Her book is filled with inspiring information to help others find the truth during their own life journey.
