About the Author
Ella Williams, in Harlem Renaissance, documents talented black poets, novelists, and artists who migrate to New York to record and publish their literary and artistic talents. From 1910 to the early 1940’s are the years when literary talents among blacks explode in Harlem, New York. At no time in American history has such literary and artistic talents ever occurred in African American Literature.
Blackberry Women takes the reader back to the end of the Great Depression to lay open the staggering problems and troubling situations a rural family endures. The action the novel displays might appear more routine than many of us have experienced—that is, until the boundless forces of nature control our lives, too, and compel us to follow the course we set for ourselves, however difficult or complex the journey.
Written by Ella Williams under the pen name Dr. Bronzél Owami, Strength to Carry On is a work designed to inspire and uplift all who read it. A collection of essays with tremendous religious impact, the author sets out to address the difficulties faced by African Americans in past societies and then attempts to offer valuable guidance through religious teaching.
