“old enough to be your father or grandfather” – Alicia’s story

I haven’t experienced the Holla, lately. However, as a teenager it was very frightening to dump the trash in the backyard or walking down the street and hear someone hollering obscenities at you about your backside and turn around its a grown adult male and he’s old enough to be your father or grandfather. I was afraid to tell my mother. For one reason she was not at home or she may not have believed me or I was afraid of what might happened to him. Even in school getting hollered at from your male peers or touched on your backside while going up the hall steps.
