“I couldn’t move. My mind stole my reflexes. I
lay there paralyzed and in the fight of my life, trying to make mind and body cooperate with me.”
A Memoir by
Flying on Broken Wings (FOBW) shows how one woman, Phyllis Bivins-Hudson, used the power of education to be the uplifter of her mind, body, and soul. Education was Phyllis's saving grace as she dealt with poverty, hunger, and homelessness while growing up in Virginia in the 1960s. Phyllis takes us down memory lane, detailing the past, while looking towards the future.
