After a lot of red tape – the family then moved to Detroit, MI where Sheba grew up – a brown girl in the throws of the Black Power Movement of the 80s – in the heart of the city – while navigating her identity as a young black woman being raised by people that did not look
like- but loved her through her formative years.
