However, once these truths are faced and along with the willingness to utilize "critical thinking" as it pertains to all that we do and with whom we interact, this book will serve as inspiration for "us", as African American Women, to finally fulfill the "birthright" of our African American women ancestors to live our "Wildest Dreams".
The author explains terms like refugee, vetting, gaslighting and flawlessness as they relate to various black women's issues and states of being. There is much to absorb but the readers will be able to fully take it all in and walk away with a new sense of purpose.
The black woman who realizes that she may need this guide will be thankful to the author for her candor and and willingness to share her own experiences. Most readers will be able to fully relate to all the real life examples offered by the author; as the book is truly a guide and handbook that should be always kept nearby for further reference and future advice. Black women, we have work to do.
There is a real sense of urgency for black women to change their situations by becoming aware, taking responsibility and taking action; so the tone is quite stern. Stearn in the aspect of sincere caring about black women and their best interests. I see the entire piece as altruistic and is in no manner self serving. The truth can be painful sometimes but it is what it is.
I highly recommend this book. The writer does not expect that everyone will agree with her perspectives on every subject covered as I do not; but this scholarly written book outlined several aspects of my own personal journey and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was even rewarded with a fresh, virtual Visa stamp on my passport, and it will never expire.
