The Poetry of Joyce Polk Brown ” - Judy Bebelaar

“I'm a Forty Five year old African-American male. Originallty from San Francisco. But I was an eight year old Lad the last time I saw Joyce Polk. She attended the same school as my oldest sister. Joyce would Call me "Cowboy". Because I liked dressing up as one. I remember her as a Nice , Friendly, Teenage girl. With a Soothing voice. And Presence. Like mostly everybody else. Joyce was just looking for a better way of life. She definitely thought she found it with Jim Jones and Peoples Temple. ” - Jeffrey Johnson
