San Juan Principal Judy Billingsly's Journey
Curated by Adrian Ruiz
This week we lift up the incredible life journey of educator Judy Fambrough-Billingsley who currently serves as a Principal for San Juan Unified School District. Ms. Billingsley’s memoir Too Brown to Keep: A Search for Love, Forgiveness, and Healing is a sweet, painful, and triumphant story.
From a childhood in Germany shortly after the war to adulthood in America, Too Brown to Keep: A Search for Love, Forgiveness, and Healing recounts the author’s inspirational odyssey, as the search for her birth parents leads to the discovery of the good, the bad, and the ugly family secrets she struggled to unearth for decades. She gives a captivating, true account of the emotional and psychological effects of being biracial, abandoned, an internationally adopted baby, and the heart-wrenching, very public rejection she suffered at the hands of some members of her newly discovered family.
