After visiting my Motherland (5 months in Ghana and 5 months in the Gambia), I was so moved by seeing the effects of slavery and colonialism first-hand, that I decided to revise my novel and turn it into a film script. Many of my people struggle to read a book, the result of ancestral trauma (enslaved Africans were forbidden to read and write). By turning my book into a film, I’ll be able to reach thousands more people with the ancestral messages in my story; 46,000 words were ‘channelled’, meaning they came through me rather than from me.
I aim to produce a 15-minute trailer for the film, which will include 3 scenes from the book. The trailer will be used to market the book, and to raise funds for the full feature film, which I aim to part-produce at TPS (Tyler Perry Studios) in Atlanta. Apart from raising the finances via investors/donations/sponsors, I’m also seeking Black filmmakers, script developers, actors and actresses, costume designers, a film director etc. to help me turn this dream into a reality; please make a contribution to my GoFundMe (I aim to raise £25,000 for the trailer project). To be part of this project email me: firstname.lastname@example.org putting MELANIN TWINS in the subject line.
MELANIN TWINS is the film script version of Journey of a Sister. However for the film, I wanted to move away from the religious foundation and focus more on the empowering Black Love story, while still explaining how religion was used to enslave us mentally. As a result, I removed my letter to God (and God’s reply), changed some of the dialogue, and also wrote some new scenes! Other major changes I made were to change the writing from Past to Present Tense, and to change their names, which were originally Suzanne and Charles. The e-book series is available to read on Amazon (links below). The new paperback (with my artwork in full colour) of ‘Journey of a Sister‘ will be available in November 2020; I’m now writing the sequel, ‘Journey of a Brother‘ – take a sneak peek!
As soon as lockdown is over, I’ll be organizing events where we will discuss the topics raised in ‘Journey of a Sister‘. I was inspired to write it after asking my Higher Self and my ancestors “What can I do to help my people heal?” My aim is to help build sustainable Black relationships, so that we can begin to rebuild our commUNITY, beginning with the Black Family. Since the mother is the core of the family, and the family is the core of the community, my work has in the past been focused on reminding the Black Womban of who she is, and her innate POW-HER, so she can truly love her Self. When the Black Man and Womban come together in a high state of consciousness, there’s nothing they cannot achieve together. However, because of covert psychological warfare against us, we find it difficult to act as one mentally, spiritually, and physically. Our ancestors built great civilisations using the power of their mind, being at One with Nature, and by channelling their sexual energy correctly. We have degraded to being unable to control our sexual urges, fitting into a system not designed for us, being forced to live a life contrary to our true nature, and because many of us are unhealed from past trauma, we find it difficult to act harmoniously with ourselves, let alone with others. I have chosen to use my gift of Creativity to help us heal in a fun, interactive and informative way. My events will also be an opportunity to get your books signed, to network and meet others like you! I will be showing the film trailer as part of the events, so please help make it happen by making a contribution to my GoFundMe! If you’d like to be part of the production team, drop me an email: email@example.com putting MELANIN TWINS in the Subject Line.
