Memphis Author, Entrepreneur, and Psychology Professional Kahdejah Evonne Stevens’ Book “Bonded”, to Be Transformed Into Screen Play Production.
Black author, entrepreneur and psychology professional Kahdejah Evonne Stevens writes a tale of multicultural diversity and the connection of friendship through colorism as well as social differences, Bonded from her female empowerment book series WOMAN, (2019).The 1920s was a time of energizing social changes and significant social clashes. The outcome was not at all good in fact a cultural civil war, in which a civilization conflicted sharply over such issues as an unfamiliar movement, immigration, the Ku Klux Klan, women’s rights, prohibition and race. Bonded is a story of two girls Daisy and Anne, whose friendship grew stronger as they developed into young women. The story started with Daisy reminiscing on the times that her and Anne had after her mother, Dorthea, kicked Anne and her mother Mary Lou out of the mayor’s house. These differences of the two did not exempt them from being friends, yet the social curve of the 1920’s made this friendship non-existent. Anne was the daughter of a house maid, and Daisy was the daughter Sevester Lanchester, the Mayor of Tyranne, Mississippi.
Life was different for a colored negro and white girl in these times. In Tyranne, MS laid a 10 mile train track and a hidden pond that separated the poor from the middle as well as upper class individuals. To Daisy, life living on the left side of the train tracks was a norm, having house maids like Mary Lou and handy helpers like Anne was her everyday life. But to Anne, walking 5 miles everyday to go to the Mayor’s house was a privilege. Not all negros seen the left side of the tracks, yet Anne did, so to the others back in her neighboorhood, it made her quite different.
The two girls were extremely close, even though Daisy was encouraged by her mother Dorthea, to play with the girls down the way, Anne still was Daisy’s favorite, with Daisy there was no skin color in her eyes, yet Anne felt every bit of how it felt to be a negro in the south. The two had constant thoughts of growing apart, but did not realize how deep their friendship really was until the wind blew the hearts closer together. Yet the town of Tyranne, Mississippi was not ready for the friendship that the girls produced, it may have bonded them together, yet will it depart the small city for weeks and months to come?
