I interviewed B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree Lynnda Pollio about her story, Trusting the Currents. Her story is multi-layered. The first is the story itself, of a teenage black girl in the late 30’s/early 40s rural South, the second are inspirational life messages woven through her story. And the third is an energetic frequency that helps to bring the reader deep into their own heart and story while they read about Addie Mae. I asked Lynnda to give a little background of what life was like for Addie Mae in the 1930’s rural south and why she wrote this story. As a Southerner myself, I am really interested in this period in southern history and the journey of self-discovery the characters take. Really fascinating interview.
