Listen to Carolyn speak about her new book on Uncaged Birds.
She speaks about what triggered her decision to move to Europe, as well as the both internal and external hurdles she had to take to make that decision. She also talks candidly about her experiences as a Black American abroad and how she gained unexpected insight into her own identity. Most compelling about Carolyn’s story is its ordinariness. She’s an “every woman” who also happens to be black. Despite its universal character, Carolyn hopes her book will inspire other, especially black women to venture out beyond the immediate circumstances of their biology, nationality and socio-economic circumstances. Because, as Carolyn’s own life has shown, there is a wealth of beauty and possibilities available to us all, if we only have the courage and faith to pursue them!
