A Memoir

Using Harlem’s cultural institutions and memorable characters as her backdrop, Mulligan writes joyously about weathering adolescence while history unfolds around her. This feel-good story resonates with humor and warmth as she chronicles her life among evangelists, curly-haired doo wop boys, snuff-dipppers, Fidel Castro’s entourage, interracial marriage, chitlin’ parties and testy interactions between West Indians and Southern blacks.

Meet Mr. Big B, the neighborhood numbers banker; join her at the Apollo for Thursday matinees and visit Smalls Paradise and the Hot Cha, when she and her father go bar-hopping on Sunday mornings. She befriends baseball’s Willie Mays in the shoeshine parlor, paints posters for the 1957 March on Washington, and tries, but fails to ingratiate herself into junior black society. This book is a living document of mid 20th-Century Harlem with appeal for all America.

Sugar Hill is the 2012 IPPY Award  winner for Adult Multicultural Nonfiction and the 2013 Benjamin Franklin Award Winner for Multicultural Writing and Autobiography/Memoir Writing.

Foundering former president Bill Clinton—now “First Gentleman” to President Hillary—makes a haunting discovery in his Harlem home: the ghost of Alexander Hamilton, with sexy former slave Sarafina in tow, sent from heaven to get Bill back on track. Taking Bill back in time to Indian bordellos, slave auctions, and political chicanery that almost lost the American Revolution, Hamilton helps Clinton perform a minor miracle in 21st century upper Manhattan that brings peace to restless spirits both living and dead.
