Go to and type in True Identity by India Wilson and you can preview my book! True Identity presents a collection of narrative poetry that shares a spiritual enlightenment and an awakening of heritage through personal stories, original verse, art, Bible verses, and images. The story begins with the end of one journey that leads to a spiritual awakening in the next one. Author India Wilson believes that it is sociologically important for the so-called black race to know their true identity because it affects their moral fiber, social mobility, and total well-being. This knowledge can strengthen every aspect of their moral fiber, greatly improving their well-being and the ways in which they interact with the world. It is India's desire to share her poetic journey of racial identity as it connects with her passion to make a difference in the lives of others. House Negro A house Negro told me not to write this book He said he feared for my life For the words are hooks (connections) A hook to release Blacks (Israelites) from the chains and the crooks For he was fearful because of the truth-Lives are took He said he was brought in as a witness-He seen it the other day He held their demise in silence and went on about his way I told him that I understood and know the truth in what he was saying But the souls and life of our people are being slain. True Identity by India Wilson is a great book for all to read. If you want to learn more about the so-called Black race, you will definitely enjoy this book. Love, Peace and Blessings!

Soft and peaceful cover. My first time reading a narrative poetry book. I was pleasantly intrigued by how the author associate the stories with the poems. The poems are warm, funny, spiritual, thought provoking and serious. I was surprised to see so many well written poems that actually tell a story and educate. This book has inspired me to do more research on my heritage. It's the type of read I can refer to again and again if I need to lift my spirits because it is so motivating.
