Review of “My Name is Child of God Not ‘Those People’“, by Julia Dinsmore

In her ground breaking first book, “My Name is Child of God Not those People, Julia Dinsmore is a Social Prophet. She unravels her tongue, unleashes her divine mind and spits truth about poverty in America. Through storytelling, poetry and street soldier teaching, the reader is taken on an intimate look at not only what its like to be poor but the interlocking social dynamics that keep millions trapped in dire straits.
