New York Styles, What Time Is It? By Jamori Brown (Illustrator), Gina Mocha, Regina Duggins Cover Image


I've shared many different aspects of my life but never like this before. Through my previous poetry books entitled "Black Magic" and "Black Coffee; No Sugar, No Cream"; I've just scratched the surface of my life's childhood trauma, the Black Female Activist and Community Leader/Advocate but this book explains How? & Why it all got started? Regina Duggins aka "Gina Mocha" opens up about personal traumas and her fight to gain her self-control back. In this unique book that sure to become top on the best seller's list; "New York Styles, What Time Is It?" gives a remarkable view into the heart of a girl growing up in the inner-city streets of Coney Island Brooklyn, NY. She explains how teaching dance saved her life from anxiety and depression and as well as many others within her community. At the young age of 12, Regina was organizing, creating, developing, and molding the young talented hearts of her community and being the "Voice of the Voiceless people" in her community. While on her journey it wasn't always easy; she faced many challenges and even traumas that no young girl should ever have to face but she wouldn't let adversities hold her down. Her ability to adapt to change was often demonstrated as she became the choreographer, dance instructor, vocal coach, and entertainment event planner for block parties, talent shows, community events, and church anniversaries was when Regina learned that the hardships in her life would never hold her down. Her purpose was greater than her pain. Regina's most prize possession came the night of November, 2019 when she was honored for the "Spotlight Servant Leader Award" in recognition of "Ethel Lance" a strong, dedicated, family oriented, leader, and churchgoer of Mother Emanuel Church who was tragically murdered in the devastating Emanuel 9 shooting. In this personal memoir, Regina "Gina Mocha" Duggins bares her soul and in a unique way she has also incorporated highlights of stories from her dance and choir members to share the impact that these groups had on their lives. A famous quote by Audre Lorde: "It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
