"Just brilliant."—Kirkus Reviews Heavily autobiographical and infused with magical realism, Black Girl Unlimited fearlessly explores the intersections of poverty, sexual violence, depression, racism, and sexism—all through the arc of a transcendent coming-of-age story for fans of Renee Watson's Piecing Me Together and Ibi Zoboi's American Street. Echo Brown is a wizard from the East Side, where apartments are small and parents suffer addictions to the white rocks. Yet there is magic . . . everywhere. New portals begin to open when Echo transfers to the rich school on the West Side, and an insightful teacher becomes a pivotal mentor. Each day, Echo travels between two worlds, leaving her brothers, her friends, and a piece of herself behind on the East Side. There are dangers to leaving behind the place that made you. Echo soon realizes there is pain flowing through everyone around her, and a black veil of depression threatens to undo everything she’s worked for. Christy Ottaviano Books

Speaker, writer, and producer Trey Anthony breaks it down, giving black women a relatable voice and personalized "keeping it real" to-do list on how to practice self-love and self-care. Therapy is not just for white women-no matter what your momma told you! After a lifetime of never truly relating to the personal development experts because of the color of her skin, Trey Anthony has written the book she needed to read as a black woman trying to navigate a world filled with unique challenges that often acts like she doesn't exist. On the outside Trey Anthony was the overachieving, reliable, and strong black woman she was raised to be, but on the inside the pressure of sacrificing her own needs to please others was building. When her grandmother and mother raised her strong, they also unknowingly taught her that self-love and expressing emotions were weak, creating an unhealthy dynamic that had Trey facing burnout and rock bottom. In Black Girl in Love (with Herself), Trey breaks down the lessons and tools that she used to heal her life, including how to: * Set clear and healthy boundaries-even with the people who raised you * Quit being the family ATM * Sort out who is a real friend, and who is just there for parties and gossip * Confront microaggressions at work without missing a beat * Forget who black women are "supposed" to be And fall in love with yourself!

In nine thoroughly documented chapters, Jackson treats of all of the leading Black women writers since the end of the Second World War. He begins with a comprehensive survey of Black women writers at work today followed by a careful recitation of the multiple images of Black men portrayed in these women's writings. Then he takes on each writer in turn, beginning with Lorraine Hansberry and Marita Golden and their portrait of the African Male-Black American Female relationships and then a close look at the men of Brewster's Place in Gloria Naylor's book. Toni Morrison's male portrayals are carefully recited and considered and then Terry McMillan's Disappearing Acts undergoes an exegesis. Michelle Wallace is evaluated for her thematic treatment of Black men followed by a suggestion that a possible dialogue may occur thanks to the work of Ishmael Reed and some Black women writers. Finally, there is a stimulating and disturbing address to the issue of Klu Klux Klan Feminism, as Jackson calls it, and its possible impact upon Black male culture in America today.

Heart and Soul magazine 101 Ways is like talking to your sister when she´s got all the right answers. Black Issues Book Review An ambitious...guide to personal growth and fulfillment through the practice of loving one´s self. Walker touches upon topics as diverse as respecting your elders and loving your hair, devoting each chapter to a single principle. Walker often seems to be thinking out loud, as if she´s writing a journal entry or letter to a close friend...The very completion of this 101-chapter volume is no small feat and should serve as an inspiration to aspiring writers. Midwest Book Review An impressively practical self-help guide written especially to aid black women to get in touch with their spiritual side, experience a zest for life, and achieve a personal liberation. Walker articulately and persuasively takes the position that true healing does not come overnight, but rather it gradually evolves over time, once we learn not to look outward for validation and approval, and only when we embrace the love of God. 101 Ways Black Women Can Learn To Love Themselves is definitely recommended as being an unusually powerful, emotionally charged, and uplifting personal improvement and self-help guide. Kanika A. Wade, The Rawsistaz Book Reviewers As a black woman on her own personal journey, I found this book to be powerful, very emotional, and moving to read. I felt that the author at times was speaking directly to me, providing the encouragement and strength that I need as I move forward into new horizons. Jamie Walker offers a book that with an open heart, many can and will find healing. As a young black woman, I am thankful that Ms. Walker heeded the call and wrote a book that all black women, regardless of age should read. Venus Noble Jamie Walker is insightful and wise way beyond her years. A page turner would not describe the inability to put this book down! There is wit and humor in every single passage! No Black woman´s bookshelf should be without this manual of self worth and respect. Though apparently geared toward Black women, it is useful for any woman who will open her mind to learning about herself and growing. Social Worker/Activist; Oakland, California Joy Parham, Assistant to the Librarian; UC Merced I believe this is a necessary and encouraging message Jamie is sending out to Black women, especially our young Black women. Most of us didn´t tap into our inner selves until we had experienced numerous trials and tribulations in life. We didn´t see the value in the valley. This is definitely a book I will add to my collection. Esther Cooper Jackson, co-founder of Freedomways magazine An excellent resource! Columbus Metropolitan Main Library (representing ten branches) A Must Read! BOOK SUMMARY Self-love is the only kind of love that can every truly heal and rescue us, causing us to be more open in all of our other relationships, activities, and endeavors. 101 Ways Black Women Can Learn to Love Themselves this book is about self-actualization, the power of sisterhood, the healing power of sharing our own stories, and the beauty o

Dare To Imagine Publishing presents Keith Lee Johnson's 7th novel of The Little Black Girl Lost series. After three long weeks of wondering if the police were going to figure out what really happened in her hotel room, Johnnie leaves Jackson, Mississippi without being questioned. When she sees Paul Masterson, the preacher who helped her when she thought her life was over, standing on the landing of the train depot in Providence, Rhode Island, she thought she had found sanctuary, a place where she could cease from worry. She was planning to escape whatever trumped up charges an eager prosecutor might bring against her by traveling the world until no one in America cared who she was or what she had done. But what she didn't know was that she had a new nemesis; one that was fully committed to her complete and utter destruction. Not only did her new revival have motivation that was both personal and immutable, her new enemy had unlimited finances and was more than willing to scour the earth to deliver without mercy the justice that fury demanded. How will Johnnie survive this new threat from a familiar family with a score to settle?

The “brilliantly wry” (Lena Dunham) and “lovably awkward” (Mindy Kaling) New York Times bestseller from the creator of HBO’s Insecure. In this universally accessible New York Times bestseller named for her wildly popular web series, Issa Rae—“a singular voice with the verve and vivacity of uncorked champagne” (Kirkus Reviews)—waxes humorously on what it’s like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits and black as cool. I’m awkward—and black. Someone once told me those were the two worst things anyone could be. That someone was right. Where do I start? Being an introvert (as well as “funny,” according to the Los Angeles Times) in a world that glorifies cool isn’t easy. But when Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award-winning hit series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, is that introvert—whether she’s navigating love, the workplace, friendships, or “rapping”—it sure is entertaining. Now, in this New York Times bestselling debut collection written in her witty and self-deprecating voice, Rae covers everything from cybersexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, from navigating the perils of eating out alone and public displays of affection to learning to accept yourself—natural hair and all. The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl is a book no one—awkward or cool, black, white, or other—will want to miss.

The image of the West looms large in the American imagination. Yet the history of American Jewry and particularly of American Jewish women—has been heavily weighted toward the East. Jewish Women Pioneering the Frontier Trail rectifies this omission as the first full book to trace the history and contributions of Jewish women in the American West. In many ways, the Jewish experience in the West was distinct. Given the still-forming social landscape, beginning with the 1848 Gold Rush, Jews were able to integrate more fully into local communities than they had in the East. Jewish women in the West took advantage of the unsettled nature of the region to “open new doors” for themselves in the public sphere in ways often not yet possible elsewhere in the country. Women were crucial to the survival of early communities, and made distinct contributions not only in shaping Jewish communal life but outside the Jewish community as well. Western Jewish women's level of involvement at the vanguard of social welfare and progressive reform, commerce, politics, and higher education and the professions is striking given their relatively small numbers. This engaging work—full of stories from the memoirs and records of Jewish pioneer women—illuminates the pivotal role these women played in settling America's Western frontier.

Black Girlhood Celebration

This book passionately illustrates why the celebration of Black girlhood is essential. Based on the principles and practices of a Black girl-centered program, it examines how performances of everyday Black girlhood are mediated by popular culture, personal truths, and lived experiences, and how the discussion and critique of these factors can be a great asset in the celebration of Black girls. Drawing on scholarship from women's studies, African American studies, and education, the book skillfully joins poetry, autobiographical vignettes, and keen observations into a wholehearted, participatory celebration of Black girls in a context of hip-hop feminism and critical pedagogy. Through humor, honesty, and disciplined research it argues that hip-hop is not only music, but also an effective way of working with Black girls. Black Girlhood Celebration recognizes the everyday work many young women of color are doing, outside of mainstream categories, to create social change by painting an unconventional picture of how complex - and necessary - the goal of Black girl celebration can be.
