THE EARLY YEARS

Red-headed Foster Child

"When I was 5, my mother woke me up early one morning to warn me that they were coming. I never figured out who they were. Later, after she had given me away to a stranger on a Berkeley street, I wondered if the pudgy cop, driving me back to my foster home was one of them." - Jessica Holter 

Jessica Holter is a mother, author, an activist for AIDS awareness and a gifted orator (public speaker), best known for creating The Punany Poets.

It was 1969 on the Morning Star Ranch in Sebastopol, CA. Musician, Lou Gottlieb had carved out his corner of the Free Love movement for all who would follow him to the woodsy spread for nudists and revolutionaries; and her parents were in love. So under the stars in a tent, the couple created a child they did not want. And like all foster children, Jessica Holter has never forgotten the sting of abandonment. Now she's ready to talk about it with a social service documentary film that will give voice to so many, and jump-start them on a path to loving themselves. Hers is a story of survival. It is one of race and of passion and of sex, and politics and religion, all dancing, at the same party in her head.

Jessica Holter was Born to an estranged Jamaican father and an Irish mother in 1969 in Berkeley, CA, and placed in Seneca Cottage http: //www.senecacenter.org/ before she was two years old. She was raised in foster care in East Oakland, CA and attended public schools. She began public speaking at age 8 taking 2nd place in a Martin Luther King, Jr. oratory competition at Highland Elementary School, and found her calling. At Elmhurst, Junior High School Artis " Love Lady" Hopkins fine-tuned her gift of gab with Toastmaster's International training. She attended True Vine Missionary Baptist church and became a youth evangelist, knocking on doors of the Acorn projects and singing at the Open Door Mission in downtown Oakland. The sudden death of her biological mother when she was 10 years old lead her to lean heavily on the old rugged cross and by the age of 12 she had received a call to preach. Her gospel voice was groomed by the Reverend Newton Carey, Jr. Her faith was challenged and her plans for the pulpit were derailed when she was molested by her foster father, and raped by an acquaintance at the age of 15. 

She found a celebration in a unique recovery process that involved writing and sharing her story through journalism. Her first controversial article about date rape caught the attention of victims at her school and the city at large when The Oakland Tribune covered the explosive editorial. And suddenly she had found her pulpit. With a knack for finding taboo subjects and forcing public conversations, Holter grew up to become one of the most renown contemporary poets of our time when she created The Punany Poets and began public conversations about urban sexuality, AIDS, HIV, and Black Women.
