About The Author
Antar Yusef Drakeford Lindsay is a native
Philadelphian, born November 10, 1972. He was named
for the Historic Ethiopian Poetic/Warrior Antar.
He attended the parochial school system and walks
this earth with a unique persona—One that is admired
by some and misunderstood by others.
Antar is a unique soul, in search of the truth,
while fearless against the lie.
He is a lifelong learner. His desire to mentor the
youth and advocate for the elderly is reinforced in
his behavioral health training at Historically Black
College/Universities (HBCUs), Lincoln and Hampton.
A cure for Autism is a dream that pulsates in
Antar’s heart and soul. His nephew, Jace Nelson, is
a living example of how love and support can bring
to the surface true talent and creativity. Jace is
profiled in Did I Stutter?, under “I’m Bad”.
Did I Stutter? is Antar’s first attempt at teasing
the brain, magnifying words that matter. This piece
of profound writing highlights his reality—raw and
unabridged. He takes liberty with using the King’s
English and does not apologize.
Writing relentlessly, using his Galaxy Note phone,
composed all of his soliloquies
and Works In Progress.
Antar credits his spiritual ideology and trust in
the universal laws to spiritualist and renowned
author Esther Hicks.
Predicated on her guidance, he has acclimated his
thought processes toward practicing personal
alignment. Through this alignment, self-actuation is
his summoned materialization.
Antar has only tapped the surface on how meditative
focus can help morph thoughts into realized
manifestations. Finally, his dream has become a
reality in Did I Stutter?
His favorite authors are Stephen King and Edgar
Allen Poe both of whom are known for their unique
