As many other community leaders in the aftermaths of Hurricane Katrina, Angela Sims-Winfrey, a native New Orleanian and lifelong community organizer immediately went into her organizing mode finding and reconnecting family, friends, and colleagues, securing relief resources, participating and organizing meetings and conference calls to actualize strategies to address the human rights violations that occurred in the aftermaths of this country greatest disaster of all times. Living in the diaspora just outside of Atlanta, Angela's "super organizing powers" were constantly on. All while trying to secure her own family, get a little rest, and ward off media-fueled "Katrinacide" stereotypes that seem to shadow her wherever she went.... Livin' Out of Boxes, Lettin' Go of Bags is a Divine Expression of Angela's covenant to heal through her "growing edges" on a spiritually-empowered journey of blessings, real-time lessons, insights, and test of Faith in Action!
