Shine on Me: The Biography of an African American Woman, Born Blind by D. Dexter Vizinau
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Margaret Vizinau was born blind in rural Arkansas in 1927. She was a woman of great faith who dedicated her God given gift of singing to the Lord.

Her family migrated to the San Francisco bay area in the late forties and in 1950 she entered into an inter-racial marriage with a non-believer. This union resulted in the birth of two sons. After six years the marriage ended in divorce, forcing her to raise her two sons on her own.

Margaret supported her family by playing the piano and singing for churches in the city of San Francisco. But she faced many challenges. She had four strikes against her. She was a woman in a man's world. She was a Negro woman. She was a single parent. And she was born blind.

San Francisco in the 50's and 60's was a place of great change and influence, and her sons would be affected by the challenges of the times. These challenges included the civil rights struggle, black awareness, sexuality, drugs and violence. The streets were constantly calling.

"Shine On Me" is a compelling drama full of suspense, spirituality, humor, betrayal, religion and sin. It is recommended as adult reading and contains strong language. Read and enjoy as you take a journey into the life of Margaret Vizinau.
