From the Bad album, I remember the days after elementary school when my mother would go down to the basement and put various Michael Jackson records on. Whether it was the Jackson 5, her favorite solo album, Off The Wall, with the fold out vinyl. I remember when I first got the Bad tape, this was one of my favorite all time songs. Am I’m just a kid, I had no idea what any of this was…well, maybe I did, lol

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
