Beyond the Broken Gates (Paperback)
Liz Hernandez Hanna was born in the county of Los Angeles and raised in Wilmington, California.
Beyond the Broken Gates is her true and raw testimony growing up in Wilmington; the scandalous life of Sapphire, The Stripper, and her short lived romance with her Egyptian lover. In a state of desperation and hopelessness, pregnant and abandoned, she found faith followed by a trajectory of transformation through education, faith and re-discovery of self.
Today, Liz is a Chicana leader in higher education, a social justice advocate for underrepresented populations and a woman of faith.
