    "My writer's mission is to illuminate universal human truths, so that more creatives can be inspired to galvanize a movement for racial education, equanimity, an end to hate speech, abuse, and the underlying social currents that create environments in which hate flourishes."


    The House on Union Street is loosely based on the author's experiences being adopted into a complicated family system and post-traumatic stress caused by several incidents. It calls upon the history of Blacks in the South and the Great Migration.


    As a divorced Black grandmother and mother of two adult daughters who were ferried amongst relatives and sent South and back again, Constance has a deep understanding of institutionalized oppression, generational trauma, and the corrosive effect white privilege has had on this nation.


















    Constance has lived on the Low End, literally and figuratively. Preserving the history of the Black experience is critical for future generations, so she grapples with the past while working towards a productive, equitable, and holistic future.
