Format: Hardcover
Umfang: 68
Altersempfehlung: ab 14 Jahre


As a Black woman, my daily existence is fraught with the specter of racism, microaggressions, colorism, and various forms of discrimination – an inescapable reality that spurred the necessity and significance of this literary work.


Courageously, the author bares her psychological wounds and offers a glimpse into the everyday lives of Black women in thirteen touching short stories. Amongst other subjects, she tackles a persistently denied issue even in present times: Everyday racism and microaggressions. Readers are entreated to acknowledge racism, speak out against it, and lead by example. This empowering book’s words will undoubtedly reverberate in the reader’s mind for an extended period, leaving an enduring impact.»Today, I call upon you to embrace your beautiful skin with boundless pride. No more shame, no more hiding, and no more succumbing to the allure of bleaching. Unapologetically showcase the world your Black skin, wear your battle scars and triumphs with dignity. Let us now resound with fervor, and may our voices never again be hushed to silence!«
