Description
Explore, through 65 poems and letters, the depths of black mental health, belief in a higher power, stimulant usage, reliance on family, and love. With an emphasis on the mental, physical, and spiritual resilience of black people, it relates the journey from depression to hope, from suicide to life, from hatred to self-love. Embark upon a uniquely personal journey and persist on the pathway to self-love. Stoicism is not a philosophy that usually describes people of the African Diaspora. However, black people endure excruciating emotional pain, mental hardship without the display of feelings, and spiritual agony without complaint. Within the pages of this book is all the validation you'll need for what you think, experience, and feel.
