CAROL DENISE MITCHELL was born and raised in Watts, California during the noteworthy era of the Civil Rights Movement, and is the sixth of sixteen children born to Zebbie and Tasceaie Charles.
The award-winning writer grew up in a post war era knowing first-hand of injustices within her poverty-ridden community. Expression via writing became a vehicle for her to highlight such problems and to write about topics that would be illuminative to her community.
With her keen ability to address difficult subject matters head-on to helping others, it is only fitting that Ms. Mitchell has devoted her precious writing time in developing informative gems like, “What Happened to Suz
With her keen ability to address difficult subject matters head-on to helping others, it is only fitting that Ms. Mitchell has devoted her precious writing time in developing informative gems like, “What Happened to Suzy.”
From honoring the American worker, in ‘Your Rights,’ to ‘Suzy’ Ms. Mitchell is a writer to be reckoned with.
My influences are far and wide including: Richard Wright, Margaret Mitchell, Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Dickens and Claude Brown. The one book out of the many I have read over the years that stays with me more than any is Claude Brown's "Manchild in the Promise Land" and Norman Mailer chose this book as a favorite too. Other than individual writers, I am highly influenced by nature and the sociological aspects of life and how it is relative to our everyday thinking. Each day we leave our abodes there are choices to make that fall in line with following the norms of society. Abstracts to the norm are interesting to me.
