10/12/19 Indie Author Day

My second Indie Author Day participation – this time with my documented memoir, Badge of Color, Breaking the Silence (Book One)! Again, I was honored to be a part of such a distinguished group of SoCal authors…and to top it off…I was surprised with a family unknown to me up to this time!

CSUF End-of-Semester Surprise – May 9, 2019

Never have I had such a warm welcome from so many. Professor Sharon Sekhon and her students invited me to attend their end-of-semester celebration. Daniel Lynem and I fielded questions from the students, gorged ourselves with pizza and other goodies.

The History-class students had been privy to my Badge of Color-Breaking the Silence manuscript as a school project. To my astonishment I received the most wonderful gift(s) from the students – their assignment? To respond to my memoir in written and/or visual format their take-away from the history of Santa Ana’s first black police officer. I received letters, poems, and artwork to cherish–too numerous to share here (although as soon as I learn how to thumbnail the photos, I will add them to this post!). However! One post was so personal and beautiful it is on pages 332-333 of my memoir: Rainbow Protector by Isabella Beltran.
