Attainable: The American dream is still alive and well

by AJ HAM

Growing up in Sub Sahara in the 90’s at the height of the HIV epidemic one was sandwiched by two realities. You were either infected or affected by the scourge of HIV and AIDS. This also was AJ’s reality. With very little opportunities in his motherland due to the ravages of the virus, he moved to the United States. He landed at JFK with nothing but a dream and hope in the American promise that if you can work hard in a generous America, you can change your present situation. Attainable: A memoir chronicles AJ’s life from the squalors of Mushili, Zambia, to the corridors of corporate America. Indeed, the American dream is still Alive and well.

It follows the little boy from that first meeting with the devil, all the way through his life… until the surprise end.

As the devil never gives up in trying to get Boogie to sign away his soul… in return for fame and fortune…

One reviewer called “Blackbird…” A must-read treasure, December 24, 2012

This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)
I’ve been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don’t let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it’s not about you, you ain’t gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he’s not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.

About this story:

“Wow. This story moved me to tears. I could see myself going along for the ride, so to speak. I feel honored to have met the homeless man through your story, and in some ways, meeting you through him. Your story was very human. It was basic, and involved. Thank you for sharing this with us…” I. W.

What it is really like to spend time with a homeless person, in the city that was once known as “Bombingham.”

Reader’s comments:

“A fascinating story…” R.N.

“I just want to let everyone know I was once homeless in Birmingham and I lived in Kelly Ingram Park so everything you learned is true…” J.C.
