Something went terribly wrong in Moon County, Georgia. The bonds that sustain this predominantly black community were tested by sex, greed, and murder. In "9 Lessons for a Meaningful Life: Voices of Inspiration", J K Dennis captures the lives of the unforgettable characters who reveal so much about themselves, while sometimes obscuring the roles they play in changing their community. This book is the collected wisdom of individuals who hope to teach others what somebody should have taught them.
Currently, J. K. Dennis is an assistant professor of English at Forest Park College in St. Louis, Missouri. According to Professor Dennis, stories have always been powerful teaching tools in the black community. He is afraid that this tradition has been put in jeopardy by more dominant forms of media. 9 Lessons for a Meaningful Life is his attempt to reclaim this tradition and inspire people to consider how they can improve their lives and make somebody else's life more meaningful in the process.
