"Act Three where we land in terms of where we land now as part of your journey both personally and professionally. What are you most excited about? What are you looking to right now? My townie townie. It's taken me a long time to get here where I can work when I want to work worked for whom I want to work for not work if I don't want to. That's been one of my goals roles from really excited about that. My two latest projects the research on the midwives in Fairfax County and excited about. I'm in the midst of that right now. Having having come across those documents in the Court records historical court records when I was doing the search for another project on the woodland plantation which was the plantation of George Washington's nephew and Martha Washington's granddaughter. They married each other and George. Washington gave them woodland plantation as a gift and wedding. Gift in my project was to look at the hundred odd Africans on that property for whom there no scant records and so I went through the we are capable documents to the court house and they went to George Washington Library. And we'll do there are CARVILLE documents. But in the midst of this I came across all these registrations durations for midwives of African descent during slavery and it just hit Me Fairfax County and the city of Alexandria had a sizable free black population and to who were this community or this community. To whom were they dependent on for services there was some fluidity between people of African descent and whites services with for the most part the black populations dependent on their own. So yeah it was standing reason. There were black midwives in Fairfax County. That makes a a lot of sense but I don't know why kind of escaped me. When I'm looking at this landscape that I live in that? I never really processed that. So that's a project that I'm interested in I and then I'm working on. And then of course always working on Morrison for years I proposed out the more of talk on more since life at the Smithsonian mistake dating back to who is released two thousand five and someone associate contacted me about doing a talk on women's history month and they want me to take the music section of it and then at that moment on the phone and I said well you know we really should do something for Morrison because Morrison who just recently died and the personnel was speaking to you said Oh yeah. My husband said that last night we need to do something about more than because wars. I just recently died to death for you guys realize you need to talk on her day seminar on her. Wow so I'm really excited about that because I've been wanting to do that for a long time. More than a decade and it's finally come into fruition think that is fantastic and not only timely. But it's about time right about time. It's about time time. And were you also involved with Tony Morrison. Yeah I was a founding board member for the Tony Morrison Society. I was the secretary treasurer. Well yeah last time. I talked to her she looked. Oh Yeah Michelle. That's right you know if you know Morrison had this way of when and more than talk to you. I don't center receiving line if it's the lion waiting for you to get your book side or she's sitting beside you in a formal meeting. She looked at issue directly in the eye and spoke to you and you felt like you were the only person in the room talking to work. She had an art of doing that. Making you feel significant matter no matter what the occasion was and and so i. I relish those memories. I have of her one time. I was in the meeting. Giannetta Cole was there and whole bunch of other people someone asks her. Well Ms Morrison. How do oh you write your novel and she said like Michelle with a Yellow Pin in a yellow pad and can I just say wow but I also had this moment of Faux Pas? We were walking across a we. Were walking through a library at Georgia state and there was a showcase with pictures of her and I knew she was behind me but I wasn't really processed process. She was right behind me and I looked at a picture for when she was at Howard and I said wow war so sure was pretty and she said. I sure was glad that you can't talk like that. Around the language person shared. That is hilarious. I tell you this I saw pieces. His pieces I am. Yes that the documentary of her and I mean I I never met her. I admire in her work and I might her from really as I became a wife. Mother myself learn to appreciate the kind of sacrifices that she made her you know in order to be professionally chilling successful right and so that's not something that we often talk about or celebrate in our community and even acknowledged right so you know we can can even encourage our children like to have these particular or to be able to experience particular benchmark successes around. Okay you got your degree. You're doing this. You're doing that. and that almost expectation is if you are female that you gotTa do all that and then somehow balanced having healthy children intelligent elegant and productive right a great relationship a working household in some capacity. And that's a lot. It's a lot lot to happen in but you know and to manage and seeing that in seeing that in the film again and seeing how spunky she was to like yes you can be all of that not lose yourself. Yeah she drawn constitution. I don't know how she maintained Herself the way that she did she will always say that she her family supporter that without her parents. She would have never accomplished what she accomplished not times when they would take care of her children. She had a large network of black women. Writers remembered in the film. She talked about how she got. WanNa take. What was Paula Giddings? Someone typed her manuscript for carrot cake made right way that was Howard campus like people were she was known for her carrot cake carrot cakes. Yeah and and and now it sort of crystallizes in my mind like no matter where I am with her. If there's food service she will always say. Where's the cake she always asked about? The cake you can think of rushing isn't about the cake cake so important right but I didn't know that she like these really gonNa Karen Kay and so. How do you see this? Tony Morrison and presentation at the Smithsonian in February of twenty twenty and then the the work around the black midwives of Fairfax County. How do you see all back doc? You know connecting back to your call to adventure. It's always about black women always. I'm always making sure that I promote the history. Three in the works a black women. I'm really always focused on that because no one narrative that I have and I'm going to say it's a novel even though the whole first half of it which is written in Poetic Verse Series Appoints. Is the story. The black women who was Victor Hugo's lover who actually rescued his daughter. Eight eight Dell Donner Barbados and one of the trips on making before the first of the year is go down to Barbados to do that research. Hopefully I can do some archival research. Even though all I know of scholars have attempted it and they haven't come up with or if no more than to be steeped in the environment so that when I replicate this environment and my fiction it's real. It feels feels real so everything. I do eventually coalesce into furthering the narrative of black women in particular in the US. And if you have some takeaways stone measure yourself off against southern you have your own journey to walk if you're seeking success or if you're seeking affirmation of what you're doing it will never coming expected to come It's never as timely. She wanted to be either premature. When you're not ready or a comes much later than you expect it be true to your vision? Don't give up if you have to have a side hustle to pay your mortgage or your rent do that but stay true to the vision no matter what you do. If you're a writer you get up and write every day is is not about it is in some way about the publishing but ultimately if you're not writing published anyway strange always have to do the work and to own self be true. Always be true to yourself. If it's it's not right. It's okay to walk away. It is really okay and always know that you're more resilient than you even think you are not you know when I taught. I always told my African American students in particular Nikola or anyone coming from the Aphrodite. asper whose ancestors were enslaved by the issue were teens. If you are the descendant of that you are more resilient zillion than you believe you are despite everything. That's going EPA genetically despite the fact is predisposed to all these Z.. is at the end of the day. You can still walk that walk walking produce and always believe that because if your ancestors endured what they endured what we're doing right now is a freaking cakewalk. I mean look I can walk past. Two blocks from me or three blocks from me is the largest domestic slave trader in the United States. The headquarters of the largest domestic slave trader in which is now the urban league headquarters and I can walk up in there and see that stuff and I'll have to worry about anybody grabbing these selling me down the river. I mean it's just a whole all different historical moment and we need to honor that when I walked down Duke Street to the River Eider the fact that my ancestors walked down the street in shackles sometimes time support a ship and other times believe it or not. They walked from Alexandria Virginia to Mississippi New Orleans. Okay they walk Encompass how do you do that to human beings so all I say is honor who you are nowhere. You are know how your body moves through space and don't ever give give up on your deathbed still be imagining what's going to happen in the next life just imagining yourself. Moving through that space. Because this isn't the you know I don't think this is the last Hurrah. Aw I think there's more after this with their you have a doctor. Michelle Simms Burton.

Hey how are you. Thank you for such a kind introduction. uh-huh for kind individual. Who's who's just doing so many things and just doing a phenomenal job at all of them? Let's thank you. Well you know me Michelle. I'm always intrigued by new project particularly if it relates to the lives and experiences of African descendants and even more broadly people of color globally. So you're presentations discussions and writings whether the topic is on the life and writings of James Baldwin a jazz gray alive or deceased or just ones that or in your short stories. On African American life they always reveal a particular analytic and historical perspective on Race Gender and social class that I truly enjoy learning from and reflecting on and I'm sure other people find that the case to thank you and I particularly Sigli enjoy speaking to individuals like yourself who just seemed so grounded so sure in so unapologetically black. Yeah yeah try to be and I wonder how did this person get here like. What was their journey lying? What did they do? Why do they do what they do? And I'm just not only interested in them to stories people tell but their journey to so that's why the podcast is called talking journeys of belonging to blackness. Yes well let me share my story with you. I reflected on that for a minute this morning and really I thought really profoundly on. How did I get to be who I am? And I'm going to say two things I'm going to give full attribution to my mother who was a New Yorker a reader She's a New York of what will yeah. Yeah by way of Pennsylvania but she moved to New York at nine years old so claim her. You're all right who was was thoroughly grounded in the arts and literature and dance and music? She dancer Cap Donald. She dropped out of college to marry my father and didn't return into. Does she was older but she always had a surrounded by BLUNCK's just books everywhere in fact people would jokingly say if you WANNA book. Don't go to the library. Goats Shirley South Breath and get the book and she put my siblings than I in predominantly white schools when I was in the second grade and she told me you're there to get an education and and exit. You don't have to socialize them. You don't have to be integrated with them. Well that's a little hard for young children to endure. But it caused me you too like structure myself so that you know that the whole thing of we always have to be twice as good which is so detrimental to our health. But I was that kids. Though for example there was an exam always got the highest score. I got one beyond my report card was in handwriting. I found out who got the a the white girl got a and practise penmanship. So I can have all leg report card. That was me. I'd functioned that way until probably the eleventh grade. Then I burn up and I made a conscious decision to pull back so there goes the Ivy League school. There goes the all A. B. Report Cards. I was in chemical biological studies. So it's kind of hard to have all as in that curriculum in high school and then I found it for a while I dance I wrote poetry. I became the artists and all I asked my father to do was like. Aren't you rich. Like travel around the world for the rest of my life so my mother dedicated Holland out. She's a rich girl to me on the radio one time because I just wouldn't get it together. What the constant in my life was always my sense of being of African descent being a black woman in the US and negotiating all that and then reading and writing those are the constants in my life? No matter what I do I always have that identity of sometimes to my detriment but I always read and write no matter what no. That's interesting and I and drought the program. You'll help to appeal back. The layers of the onion a bit for us you know particularly how how your story of your early childhood is contextualised within the sort of geographic space base of Detroit Michigan. Yeah right yeah and so. That's that's poignant for folks to understand you know all right. Why are you saying what you're saying about schools that you attended and all that? Yeah so often forget when we talk about the integration of the schools and racism and that kind of violence that occur. PEOPLE WANNA WANNA go to Arkansas. LITTLE ROCK THEY WANNA go south and then they have Boston in their mind is sort of the northern store. The people rarely talk about the violence of Detroit short and after it wasn't until the riots that there was white flight Detroit the nineteen sixty seven rebellion. That's what we really call it. But prior to that walking into white spaces in Detroit Trey could be definitely one of the things that call me. Young did who was the mayor under my childhood was at he dismantles what was caused stress which was four white cops in the police car unmarked car out of uniform which is pull up. Jump Out of the car and throw any black person on the sidewalk Grad smasher face into the sidewalk Bhagwat and draw their guns and the first thing he did was dismantle stress so we were able after he dismantles stress to kind of walk through the city with a degree of freedom that we hadn't had prior to that and also He instituted residency requirement for all city workers. So that now. The police force was comprised the price of people who actually did the neighborhood and people who who we knew and that change dynamics always jokingly say in Detroit we had a kind of freedom coming up under coma young. I think that is probably unprecedented within the US particularly at that time right at the historical moment is seventy in so when you have that context of growing up in Detroit and then you have your home. Life context with I mean. I didn't even realize that your mom danced professionally. Right Ain't now yeah. And then the choices that she made as a woman to raise you and your siblings and how that has informed even just why you do what you do I mean I mean I feel like we're just at the beginning of what I like. I like to call. Well what is your call to adventure. Act One call to adventure my call to adventure. Oh doing everything. Wow I you know oh I used to joke league when I taught my students I have. ADHD so when I go off on the tangent just released back in. Because I'm because one of the things. My mother instilled in us. which just just curiosity follow your curiosity? And she used to jokingly say also if you can't make a living without having the nine five day there's something wrong with you while she's at home home and my dad is hitting the pavement every morning onto a nine to five. I'm used to that was hilarious. Kind of like contradictory in itself but what she was trying to do is empower us to follow our passion so while she never steered me towards anything and I used to Bemoan the fact that she wouldn't give me structure. I'm glad that she didn't my father was a structured person in my the mother allowed all four for children to just follow their passion and it worked out fine for me in your in the intro. I listed so many things I listed professor. I listed photographer. I've listed content provider so many hats you wear when you sort of think about all all the things that you do professionally intermixed the things that you do also personally. How did you become interested and being all of these things.

One of the things Michelle, and I actually hadn't common is that. There were no bruises. There's no overt physical abuse happening. And it can be really hard to see that abuse is happening when it's all psychological in your partner has been working overtime to get you to stop trusting yourself. It's a really tough situation to be in. It's easy to write off things. Like insults are condescension or controlling decision making as harmless or normal things. But it's domestic violence. There's going to be a Lincoln our show notes for people to check out. But first, we're going to talk to Michelle. So Michelle, thanks for joining me in the studio. Thank you for having me and fresh off the heels of an audition. That's very LA. Yeah. Actress in the house, so Michelle let's just dive in to your story. So I guess take me back to the star wherever you were. When you first met this man, I grew up in Sarasota, and then when I graduated high school and moved to Orlando with my mother to be an actor in Orlando because DisneyWorld was like the closest place to go. I moved tour Landau just beginning. In acting. I didn't go to college. I was still living with my mother, my mother, and I moved there together. I feel like I should preface this by saying when I met this person, I was very naive. I was sexually abused. When I was ten eleven over period of year. And I feel I never dealt with it. And it left me in a really. Naive place when I met him trying to. Oh, no. No. It's okay. There are many. There are many right? Yes. We met working at a dinner theater. And you know, we were was. It was romantic. We were doing shows and make an other laugh, and he's somebody that wrote and produced his own rose. And I just I admired that about him. And it was the kind of creative life that I wanted to lead. They think back to like the very first thing he said to me, and I'm like what? So a a metal working at the dinner theater. And the very first thing he said to me was hey, do you have cats, and I said, yes, I have to because I loved them. So like immediately I want to open up about my cats. They're my kids, you know. And he goes, that's great. You wanna fuck? In my frame of mind and how naive I was. I remember thinking like, oh, he finds me attractive. Rather than what a pig? It was not very long after I moved out on my own. And and he moved in really fast. He started living at I was I had two roommates. But he started living at our -partment like he somehow just charmed his way in and I look back at it. Now, like how could I just let him? Takeover my lie. It was weird. It's weird to think about and. He was still living with his ex. When he. We started dating me. How old were you at the time when you met him twenty three so we moved into gather really quick really quick, which was a horrible. We did not argue for the first year might look back on that. And like, well, that's kind of weird. No, you need to argue about something. But it was like a full year into it. And that I look back into it's not healthy. But that was about the time that. He told me the you need to deal with being molested. You're a little which was great. He encouraged me to go to therapy. But what I didn't know is that like that was going to be used as a tool against me. What happened? Well, I mean, I went to the therapist and confronted the people that needed to know about what happened. And there was a a separation between me and my family, which kind of made it easier for him to have some sort of control over my decisions, and in dealing with that and coming to terms with.

She was in a marriage the war her down. So completely that she ended up having a total breakdown mental health is stigmatized but acknowledging it was her first step towards finding peace, and it finally empowered her to leave. Imagine you're living in Orlando, Florida, it's June. And it's hot you and your husband tried to stay cool in your beautiful condo. But you've been crying lot. Lately, you've been trying to get pregnant, but the idea bringing a child into the marriage, actually, really scares you. It's not that. You don't want to be a mother. You're totally okay. If that happens, it's the names your husband calls, you that loom large in your thoughts, slight stupid worthless. It's the eye contact you search for but never comes in fact, when he does finally look at you. It's really scary. It's him slamming doors to wake you up at four AM is how he says you can't cut your own hair, doesn't he see how tired you are hired of everything. But the thought of bringing a child into this marriage that's overs. You it focuses your intentions like never before. So when you finally sit down to tell him, you feel more sure of yourself than you have during every moment of your seven year marriage. I'm leaving and this time. So how many times have you given a gift to someone, and you know, they're not gonna use it more times than I care to admit. And I hate doing it.
