Hi, I’m Sandra Baker Baron,

I’ve been aware of racism since I was a child reared in the South. In 1967-68, I taught English in New Orleans at an all-Black, inner-city school. I learned how my White preferences had given me many opportunities that my students and staff had never had.

My book, MISSED BEADS, is based on that inner-city experience and the adaptations I needed to embrace. The staff and students taught me ways to cross cultural lines. DIO Press will publish my novel this summer.

I re-enter the blogging world, seeking readers of all colors, who also regard concern for equality. Join me in becoming a voice to help unlock the invisible chains still on our Black brothers and sisters.

Stay tuned for the release of my new book!
