Hi'Yella: Life In the Projects is written by Crystal Lampkins-Banks.
Can you picture this?
Your childhood growing up in the Robert Taylor Homes - as a fair-skinned kid. Your skin complexion was considered yellow, and as a result you were constantly labeled as the lighter one in the group. Enduring a great deal of trauma and devastation due to poverty, crime, and violence that left you feeling numb to a new normal.
From the everyday happenings of the ghetto, to eating government cheese, dodging bullets, living uncomfortably in roach and rat infested living conditions, and being molested, Surviving it all through Christ! Be inspired by a testimony of overcoming a system designed to fail you!
