No Weapon Formed: An Exploration of the Black Woman’s Experience in America, and how we can move towards healing together
If you are a Black woman who:
-deals with the daily stress of racism and microaggressions
-feels like you can’t show vulnerability because you’ll be seen as weak
-gives so much to others that most times you feel there’s nothing left for yourself
…you’re not alone. This book is for you.
The Black Woman’s journey in the U.S. has been one of triumph and perseverance. Her unflinching and courageous spirit even when confronted by the damaging intersectional forces of racism and sexism have allowed her to continue to stand. But that fortitude has been at a very high cost. Black women are more likely to have a higher rates of cardiovascular disease risk factors and mortality; they are more likely to die related to complications from childbirth; and they suffer from a host of other health, social and economic disparities.
No Weapon Formed is a book whose time has come.
This book explores the earliest beginnings of the Black Woman in this country. No Weapon Formed uses history and current events as a backdrop, but also spotlights voices of real women who discuss their personal experiences and struggles as Black Women in America. Most importantly, No Weapon Formed offers a powerful guide which can be used to help achieve mental and physical healing in a way that is intimate and real for you.
The world may not change, but we can change the way we react to, and are affected by it.
No Weapon Formed will certainly change the way you think about owning your own peace and healing.
From Pain to Love: Our Journey Outside the Rainbow
The transparency of this awe-inspiring memoir will take you on a kaleidoscope of emotions. It will make you cry, laugh, sob and celebrate…all at the same time! Intrigued is the state you will find yourself in as you journey with two black southern girls who were both born in the 1960’s, lived lives filled with confusion, laughter, chaos and love. It is of one girl’s love for her mother and how it was strongly exhibited in the care she provided during her mother’s illness. She not only shares how she persevered beyond childhood trauma, poverty, and insecurities, but also the unfolding of a love story through many personal obstacles and society’s demonization. In the spectrum of the other girl, she lives a secret life conflicted with holding on to her faith and the guise of who she was expected to be. Then, in the 1980’s, they tried to live a normal life in the eyes of society while surviving lies, hidden struggles and battling sexual identity. Both determined to build the life they wanted…on their terms…while living outside the rainbow. LOVE WON!
