Herstory Hempstead Home

Emily Porter reflects on her poorer beginnings in “You Can’t See the Stars in Hempstead”. She thinks back to her childhood home , and it’s multitude of imperfections, like a cracked staircase and a chipped doorway. Porter constantly compares her home to those of her friends. She recounts the many money issues her parents had, and compares it to her life in Hempstead as she can’t afford to go out with her friends.
