Writer's Cramp Review
Happy, happy morning!
Your Prompt was: by Bianca
While surfing on Youtube I found a Johnny Cash show from many years ago.
I got stuck listening to the beautiful Gospel music, as my son entered the room. "Who is that lady?" he asked, pointing on Mahalia Jackson, singing Amazing Grace...
Your mission: Explain to a child who Mahalia was, and what she achieved during her life.
What I liked most about this piece was that it was beautifully written. You Showed us your childhood (whether it was a fictional childhood or not is unimportant.)
Further Corrections & comments:
Unfortunately, I don't think you explained her achievements in life. I'd liked to have heard more about her role as a champion of black rights, how she broke history with her singing and TV career, how she joined forces with the Rev. Martin Luther King, etc.
I am so glad I got to read this. Thank you for entering the Writer's Cramp. I hope you keep on writing and sharing your work!
