Book Recommendation: Black Woman Redefined – Available Now!
My good friend and colleague former JET Columnist, White House Reporter, MSNBC / Grio.com & Essence contributor Sophia Nelson has penned a new book that everyone is talking about! Black Woman Redefined: Dispelling Myths and Discovering Fulfillment in The Age of Michelle Obama.
We all heard about and were appalled by the Psychology Today article last week that called black women the “Most Unattractive” of all women and even men. This was the final straw that broke many of our backs. Sophia is right—it is time for black women to stand up for themselves, and redefine the often negative images that define them. Images such as throwing Pepsi cans and hitting their men in the head, or being angry, attacking other black women as NeNe Leakes did Starr Jones on Celebrity apprentice, and on and on.
I am asking you to support this book which you can purchase on Amazon.com.
Sophia’s book serves as both a shield and as a weapon against this reckless assault that threatens to reinforce false stereotypes that damage black women professionally, emotionally, relationally and otherwise. Additionally, Sophia provides a platform for some of today’s biggest celebrities to provide show wisdoms to black women everywhere including CNN’s Soledad O’ Brien, TV One’s Roland Martin, MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, and Actresses Kimberly Elise and Taraji P. Henson.
Supporting this book is one of the best ways for us to combat the stereotypes of all black people, but particularly black women. I ask you stand with me in supporting this book and helping it become a best seller so that Sophia can help pave the road for other African American women and men to have significant opportunities in publishing!
