Black Sounds by Krishna T. Moore


Krishna T. Moore was born in Washington, D.C. at Greater Southeast hospital during the 1990s. A life in the nation's capital poorest Ward instilled a strong moral conscious within his youth. To escape the violence outside his window he placed his head in books to imagine a world beyond his immediate reach. With the hopes of using the knowledge of his private reading while matriculating through various institutions lead him to deep feeling of lost: lost of home; lost of family; lost of hope. Lacking the Accustomed being labeled a nothing as a child in an era of Crack Babies the conflict of being introduced to affluence complicated the narrative of The Haves and Have Nots.

This is the story of a young man whose dejection is met with faith in his abilities that he cannot understand. Support, devotion, and affection that comes at the price of dismantling fear to be vulnerable. New opportunities with a change of perspective; more importantly the knowledge of not being alone.

Does he remain who he believed himself to be, a "Hood Nigga" or does he decide to let go of what he knows to become who he wants to be?
