Description
"It started as a text between two friends. Tarana Burke, founder of the 'me too.' Movement, texted researcher and writer, Brenae Brown, to see if she was free to jump on a call. Brenae assumed that Tarana wanted to talk about wallpaper. They had been trading home decorating inspiration boards in their last text conversation so Brenae started scrolling to find her latest Pinterest pictures when the phone rang. But it was immediately clear to Brenae that the conversation wasn't going to be about wallpaper.Tarana's hello was serious and she hesitated for a bit before saying, "Brenae, you know your work affected me so deeply. It's been a huge gift in my life. But as a Black woman, I've sometimes had to feel like I have to contort myself to fit into some of your words. The core of it rings so true for me, but the application has been harder." Brenae replied, "I'm so glad we're talking about this. It makes sense to me. Especially in terms of vulnerability. How do you take the armor off in a country where you're not physically or emotionally safe?" Long pause. "That's why I'm calling," said Tarana. "What do you think about a working together on a book about the Black experience with vulnerability and shame resilience?" There was no hesitation. Burke and Brown are the perfect pair to usher in this stark, potent collection of essays on Black shame and healing (and contribute their own introductions to the work). Along with the anthology contributors, they create a space to recognize and process the trauma of white supremacy, a space to be vulnerable and affirm the fullness of Black love and Black life"--
