“…I’ve got a confession my friends, I ain’t no fool…”
I remember how the 2007 Super Bowl, when one of my favorite artists when from a rousing rendintion of Jimi Hendrix’s “Watchtower,” into another fave, Foo Fighters “Best Of You.” I didn’t agree that he’s was giving them the “F’ you,” for their recording of “Darling Nikki,” as a single B-Side. The same night included on eof the most amazing performances of “Purple Rain,” in the rain.
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.
