"#BrendaMyersPowell was anointed to change this world and #LeavingBreezyStreet is her gospel. In an age of constant self-produced reality showing and oversharing online, she's done the work to compile honest testimony into a worthy text capable of circulation around the globe, offering clarity to an unfairly documented population and its voices society distorts. Do not fear this book; it is a sheer joyride of wisdom, expert anthropology and proof a little humor will save your soul." -Kalisha Buckhanon
