Gabriel's Balloon by Hope Ayers

On Saturday, February 15, at 12:00pm the Decatur Fellowship of Historic Black Churches will host Decatur Native, Ms. Hope Ayers. Ms. Ayers will share how her upbringing in Decatur inspired her and will read excerpts from her new book Gabriel’s Balloon.  

Hope works as an attorney and advisor for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/FEMA.  She received her B.A. from Alabama State University and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Alabama. Along with her endeavors inside of the classroom, Ms. Ayers supports her community as well. Ms. Ayers is the CEO of Hope & Air, Inc. and an avid supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of America.  She is an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

The following is a short synopsis of her new book:

"Gabriel Loveman is a born genius who must choose between the opportunity of a lifetime, his responsibility to his family and his devotion to the woman he loves. One path will lead to a bright future and a broken heart. The other path will lead to love and a broken spirit. As he struggles over the tortuous decision, Gabriel finds himself in the throes of a threat against his life. In a world where being black can be a death sentence, finding a way to stay alive as he determines his fate will take much more than courage and determination. Gabriel will need a miracle.”
