This book was recommended to me by a friend of mine. It had never come up on my radar before, I’d never seen it on my timeline, heard quotes from it, or heard of the author, Sonya Renee Taylor before.
I’m so glad I have now. This book is one I will, as my friend did with me, recommend to everyone. It is worth your time, and your work.
This isn’t a body positivity book, but it does have aspects of that. This is a present day and historical account of straight up body terrorism and how we are all both steeped in it and accountable for it. Taylor walks us through a journey to self-awareness using the body. We all have one, and it makes the messaging digestible for all.
The endgame: radical self-love in the face of white supremacy, capitalism, and our own implicit bias.
