GROWING UP NIKKI – Half-Hour Coming-of-Age limited series adapted from my essay, “Sorry I can’t Come Out and Play. My Mother Is Dying”: Reflecting on the serious topic of cancer from a Black woman’s ironic point of view, GROWING UP NIKKI is set in Detroit and unfolds in present time as Nikki, 48, shares stories with her cancer support group about her no-nonsense mom, who secretly battled cancer in the early ‘80s. Following two parallel stories each week, the series explores the transformation of the put-upon woman Nikki’s become by flashing back to her as an adventurous 11-year-old girl who rebels against, but ultimately absorbs the lessons of her mother’s love.
