Genesis Begins Again

By: Alicia D. Williams

Genesis keeps a list of things she hates about herself: #86: Her skin is so dark, people call her Charcoal and Eggplant. And #73: Her family keeps getting evicted, their belongings laid out on the sidewalk. But an encouraging choir teacher helps her find something to love about herself: her singing voice.
