Developing a deeper understanding of yourself through personal branding is a journey through time and experience. In this episode, Angela Golden Bryan tells her story and illustrates how she achieved greater clarity through personalized learning.
Angela Golden Bryan grew up on the island of St. Croix in the US
The Virgin Islands listened in fascination to Anansi’s
mischievous spider and tales of the scary goat-foot woman. She was
amazed by stories about her great-great-grandmother, Moriah, a participant in the Fireburn, a bloody Labor Revolt of 1878, on
the island of St. Croix. Angela’s love for storytelling translates into
being an award-winning writer, speaker, actor, and now
Angela wrote Fireburn the Screenplay, a historical fiction based on
the Fireburn, and it became an Amazon bestseller in June 2019. The
attention this book received inspired Angela to publish “James
and the Fireburn,” an anti-bullying children’s book using the
Fireburn as a backdrop. Her children’s book correlates bullying
with the behaviors of the plantation owners who abused the
Laborers and encourages children to break the silence of bullying
and it won an award with Book Authority as one of the Caribbean
history books of all time.
Angela is the Executive Producer of the award-winning “Fireburn
The Documentary”, which is being shown in film festivals globally.
Filmed on the island of St. Croix, it is designed as a tool for
cultural preservation, education, and entertainment and examines
the history behind the Fireburn. Cultural
preservationists, storytellers, historians, and artists share their
knowledge of the event for audiences to gain a well-
rounded view of the Fireburn.
