Raised by strict Evangelical parents who struggled to put food on the table, Lauren's story is about what happens when dogmatic parents push their child scholastically (Vassar), but that critical thinking leads to the questioning of her belief and ultimately to becoming an atheist.  She also talks about the politics of skin color within the African American community and the struggle of protecting a father's image as a community leader when his actions didn't match his words.  Lauren is a freelance writer and artist living in Los Angeles.
