Jalondra A. Davis - BUTTERFLY JAR
Jalondra A. Davis -




With all the rhythm, poetry, and pain of a Black girl's childhood, Jalondra Davis tells the story of Tanis Sutton, a 10 year old girl who dreams of having straight hair, happy parents, and an ice-cream colored house on the west side of town. Mischievous and attention-seeking, Tanis struggles with playground romance and schoolyard cliques in the midst of her family's bitter betrayals, which threaten to unravel them as a city explodes. Woven into this simple coming of age story is a powerful statement of the trauma, humor, confusion, and beauty of growing up Black in early-nineties LA.
