Michele L. Waters

Born and raised in Southern California, National Indie Excellence Awards (NIEA) Finalist Michele L. Waters exemplifies the true meaning of the words success and diligent, which she has so effortlessly been able to project through her hit novels Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter and Can’t Let Go.

Broken Spirits: A Letter To My Cousin Rodney G. King, is an exclusive memoir of Rodney King’s confidant, business partner and cousin Ontresicia Averette will be published by Crystall Clear Publishing.

Averette, who stood by Rodney King through the beatings and the historical verdict that acquitted the four policemen involved in the incident, encountered her own cataclysms through gender discrimination and racism from working with NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Broken Spirits will invite readers to experience two stories of oppression and social injustice faced by cousins Averette and King. It will focus on Averette’s fight with working in corporate America and King’s fight against police brutality, which plagues inner city communities worldwide.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots, Broken Spirits: A Letter To My Cousin Rodney G. King is slated to release on Friday, April 27, 2012

Musical Artists Include: The Staple Singers, Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Chrystiana Howard, Darryn Zewalk, Patti Labelle, Amarily & Channel Eight !
