“Mother of 5 sons and a daughter, as well as “Eya” to 5 grandsons. I am not really ashamed to say that I am a better grandmother than I was a mother. Seriously working on my Masters of Motherhood and being confident I will have a degree of experience and knowlege, to help make change in the lives of many.

“Caring about the environment we will leave behind is important to me, so I am a advent reclycler, which means I can find a re-purpose for just about everthing we throw away.

“A professional gift basket designer and small business owner, as well as my passion as a public speaker keeps me pretty busy.

“I am also a writer, who encourages those that I meet to “Be Write About It”, meaning to express things that most people would not, could not and do not say. It has been quite an experience, because in doing this, I have written and produced a play about a major turning point in my life.

“Continually trying to enrich an already full life as a caring and responsible human being and the lives of my family is an all-the-time joyful practice.

“Peace, purpose, passion, prosperity and promise is what I seek and advocate. Those close to me say I am a TRUE ETERNAL OPTIMIST that knows that circumstances can be better, if we continue to work hard and believe.

Monica “Monniej” Johnson

My name is Monica (Monniej,)Johnson and I am one of the owners of PA Dreamers LLC, a small bath and body products, spa service and personal and comfort wear retailer in Detroit, Michigan.

My sister, Donna Bell and I came together and started PA Dreamers (P.A. are our mom’s initials) to honor our mother and to help us recognize how we can avoid some of the health issues she battled before passing away from hyperthyroidism at a very young 48 years of age. My mother suffered from a multitude of skin problems ranging from swelling and boils to cystic blemishes and I really believe that if she were still here we could offer her many more choices than those available in the 1980s. My mom’s skin problems also prompted me to go to school and become a licensed esthetician.

David L. (Roylee47) Frank is a husband and father of four.

roylee1“I have worked in the government for the last 30 years. I am also a pianist/singer/songwriter, and have enjoyed doing so for the last 40 years. Because I have three daughters this issue is one that is close to me.

“Abuse against women is the social breakdown of what men should truly be representing in this society. When we act out our frustrations by verbally, or physically abusing our female counterparts we have chosen to reject God’s instructions for us as men to love our wives, companions, and daughters, as Christ has loved the church, and as he has loved us. As long as there is an exit then there is a way to leave before we react in the wrong way. 


“I know that I love the Lord, and I cannot achieve anything without him being in my life.  I believe that we are all put here on this earth to live in harmony. I believe that African-Americans should be further committed to looking back to the periods where we have become divided in purpose, and in relationships with one another, and repair those riffs so that we can create a better present day life for ourselves, and insure a better future for our children. 

“I am a person who believes that you can never stop learming new, and exciting things. I pretty much stay the same person from day to day, and like to believe: that if you can’t be real, and true to ourselves than what else is there to be?”

I can’t get enough of the story… once combined — I realize how it’s such an awesome collaboration! Even while addressing the horror/struggle and divisiveness of domestic violence -the belief in God fearing lovingkindness, respect, reciprocity, hope and healing is not lost…. It’s a wonderful tale… by a few extraordinary people!

Oh my, don’t we look good? Truly Caribbean Woman has done a masterful job at putting all of this together. Fantastic job on behalf of the writers, people who suggested titles and the countless number of supporters who inspired us every single day. This has truly made the Creator smile.
