This elegant, practical book combines the universal wisdom of Buddhism with an inspirational call for self-acceptance and community empowerment. Written by a woman who grew up facing the challenges that confront African-Americans every day, Being Black teaches us how a "warrior-spirit" of truth and responsibility toward oneself and others can be developed into the foundation for real happiness and personal transformation.
