The purpose of this book of narrative, non-fictional articles promise to bitch slap you into owning your truth, after which you will apologize to the ’angry’’ black woman, followed by forgiving yourself, and ending with us hugging it out. This book will educate, enlighten, answer that burning question that keeps so many up at night (smile), and will help you to help me to help others who need help understanding the Truth, Excuse and the something else as to why ’Black women are always so angry’. Hmmm
Articles include: me in my angry black mother which talks about my mothers struggle to beat the odds while living in the projects, on welfare, eligible for surplus cheese, married to a hustler, and who finds time to laugh with friends while sitting in the backyard listening to jazz with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other, and how she single-handedly confronted gang members on the weekend and worked in a Catholic school bookstore during the week. And mom has many secrets.
The Geo-Corpoate angry black woman with an attitude. As diversity champion of a major corporate company, I hosted many events to support inclusion, but one exercise about stereotypes is still being talked about 15 years later.
Sheet one: gang member, welfare, food stamps, smalltime thief, uneducated, likely to end up in jail or dead.
Sheet two: most likely to succeed, track star, computer programmer, honor student, volunteer, big sister, team captain.
Sheet one + sheet two = ME.
You could hear a pin drop. What do you see when you look in the mirror - truth excuse or something else? Why I love you so much. I love you so much because I can’t see it in your beautiful eyes – your determination, your fight, your struggle, your perseverance. That spirit that measures your manhood, that defies defeat – that spirit in which your mothers breasts nourished you for what’s to come – begging quietly to be heard and to be given a chance, and praying that you will make it home alive. My heart burst at the thought of your strength. I admire your endurance, humility and humble spirit. Tell me, how can I possibly be an angry black woman when I love you so much?
