In the style of Iyanla Vanzant, Being Black is a down-to-earth spiritual handbook for all black people searching for true self-acceptance and lasting personal happiness. The average black person today is searching for greater meaning in their everyday lives than ever before. They seek a spiritual life that transcends traditional religious teachings and offers an alternative to the rampant materialism of the modern world - but they also need the tools to find it. Now available in paperback for the first time, Being Black speaks directly to a black audience in an elegant, practical book that combines the universal wisdom of Buddhism with an inspirational call for self-acceptance and community empowerment. Angel Kyodo Williams teaches how a 'warrior spirit' of truth and responsibility towards yourself and others can be developed into the foundation for real happiness and personal transformation. These personal stories and simple guidelines written in a straightforward language, invite readers from all faiths to step into the freedom of a life lived with grace, fearlessness, and fluidity.
