Have you ever felt an awkward feeling the first time you meet a fellow Black Girl? It's the feeling that asks, "is sis going to accept me or reject me?" Perhaps, you have given a fellow Black Woman that you met for the first time a once over and decided if you will accept or reject them.
"The Black Girl's Guide to Healing Emotional Wounds" is about the trauma and emotional wounds that hold us back and prevent us from being our best selves i.e. daddy issues, mommy issues, toxic relationships, etc. People often ask me why I chose to focus on Black Women. Although trauma for all women is similar, the origins and the hurdles we have to face on our journey to healing is different.
The objective of this book is healing and unity. I believe it's important for us, as Black Women, to view each other as sisters instead of competitors and to be includers instead of cliques. This will only occur if we address and heal the age-old baggage that we inherited from our forefathers, as well as the societal ills we have been dealt. Take the journey to healing.
