Here are a few of the ten women you will meet in the book . . .
• Jean Sutton, now a successful executive, who writes about what her father's death and family's poverty taught her about hard work, men, and marriage;
• Yolanda Easley, whose experience at a mostly white college helped to teach her about being Black;
• Marcia Lyles, a top education official, who learned firsthand how low expectations can cripple minority students;
• Lina Buffington, a super-achiever whose confident exterior hid a painful inner secret.
These "sisters" and others have opened their hearts and lives to you. They invite you to sit with them, laugh and cry with them, and reflect on your own journey as a beautiful Black woman.
Everyone knows the words to "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." What most don't realize is that this iconic song has been a beacon of change for hundreds of years. Generations of protesters and civil rights pioneers have created new lyrics, beginning in royalist Britain and continuing through conflicts in colonial times, the American Revolution, the suffragist and labor movements, and the struggles for black and Native American civil rights. With spectacular illustrations by Caldecott Honor–winning artist Bryan Collier, My Country, 'Tis of Thee offers a fascinating insight into the American fight for freedom.
In her groundbreaking debut essay collection, actress Lily Collins—Golden Globe-nominated star of Rules Don’t Apply, Mortal Instruments, and To the Bone—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She's learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.
