Join Tawana Cadien and guest Dr. Niama Williams today on Life Happened... From Homelessness to Hope. Dr. Niama L. J. Williams believes that dreams deserve to be lived, and thus has committed herself and her company to liberating those who dream of a different life each day but cannot seem to actively step into that life. After 17+ years as a professor of literature and composition, Dr. Ni experienced homelessness and that revolutionized her self-concept and commitment to others. Now Dr. Ni knows for sure that those who serve the indigent and the indigent themselves are some of the hardest working and most stressed people in our society. She is building a non-profit, Blowing Up Barriers Enterprises, that will employ the indigent, the long-term under- and un-employed, those on fixed-, low-, or no-income in the selling of her books, workshops, and intuitive counseling practice. She understands that those who have been traumatized by poverty, violence, an almost complete lack of opportunity, addiction, et cetera, will be profoundly changed by her work and experiences. They deserve a concrete leg up in this difficult economy. Dr. Ni earned her own leg up through a bachelor’s degree in Comparative Literature from Occidental College; a master’s in professional writing from the University of Southern California; and a master’s and Ph.D. in African American literature from Temple University. She has written and published 13 books about recovery from trauma, and hopes to place them in treatment centers, hospitals, and welfare offices across the country to encourage and uplift those who face the dragons of life each day.
