tlogc

The Third Life of Grange Copeland is the debut, thought provoking novel by Alice Walker. The novel addresses the issues of physical and psychological abuse of black women and the moral responsibility that had to be obtained by black men.

Walker begins this novel with Grange Copeland, a man who was a hopeful sharecropper but had a very dominate, abusive, and violent persona towards his family because of his job. His persona negatively affected his wife Margaret and their son Brownfield which later lead to their downfall. Grange has to go on with his “past life” mistakes and try to make them right, but is it too late?

An amazing read that evokes emotional, controversial, and unapologetic impressions. Teaches you the thoughts of a man after mistakes and how you can avoid unnecessary situations.

The Brown Girl’s 10 Commandments

Hey MRG’s,

I know that it has been a LOONNNNGGG time coming, but unfortunately life sometimes gets in the way of what we love to do. Yet when life throws you pitfalls sometimes you have to resuscitate your goals life and ambitions to come back stronger than EVER!! In the midst of the trials I had to come to terms with a lot and give myself and you lovely ladies some mantras to get us through some of the situations we face.. ‘Cause baby trust me we go through it all and whether or not we show those emotions to the world we still have to PUSH THROUGH and SLAY THROUGH IT ALL!!

Remember how it felt to walk alone towards your own purpose.”

Hey MRG’s,

I think it’s safe to say that of all the things we want out of life (whether big or small) we all mostly just want one thing out of life and ironically Drake said it best to simply express out feelings in one sentence:

— in a nutshell no matter whatever walk of life… to sum up our wants in life this is all we want- TO BE SUCCESSFUL!
I know that I did. I knew that I wanted a successful career, to have my own and to be a fearless girl at doing it…whatever IT was!!
