Kola Boof lecturing at Emory University this Friday

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am lecturing at Emory Medical University in Atlanta this Friday ...in

the Whitefield Biomedical Auditorium....at 6:15 pm.

My lecture is called "The Living Woman"...as opposed to the "strong black woman."

I am also coming to DENVER and NEW YORK CITY in May.

The exact dates haven't been set.

If you haven't already, check out the amazing reviews & plaudits for

my current Akashic bestseller, "The Sexy Part of the Bible."

Hope to see you soon.

WOW!

This event was so successful and so different than anything I've ever done.

Giving a lecture (to a roomful of black women doctors!) on a particular subject is much calmer

and more invigorating than the normal free-reign book reading.

I spoke on why I don't like being called a 'strong black woman' and prefer we think about replacing

it with 'the living woman' as our mantra. The women overwhelmingly agreed to and related with the

entire historical picture I painted of how this language (strong black woman) does at times box us in

as ..."mule of the world"...."they're strong (not really women) & can take care of themselves"...."be

a strong black woman & take it like a man."

It was quite a strong reaction, a lovely bonding time & I sold a ton of books.

I also fell in love with Atlanta. What a beautiful and serene city.

Hi, Kola Boof. The way you write is amazing.

Are dvds of the lecture on sale?

Thanks so much.

NO...there is no DVD of the lecture or anything.

You are welcome, you are definitely one that I remember from when I was on here years ago. That is unfortunate re: no dvd. Perhaps I'll know ahead enough next time to catch you live.

Take care.

I have never cared for the 'strong black woman' label either. As you so wisely put it...it reeks of being the mules of the world, which too many of us have been and little thanks have we gotten for it.

I feel we have been used, misused and disrespected more so because of this mindset of many.

So being called a strong black woman is no compliment. It reeks of trickery.
