Brown Girl Resilience Books

The Brown Girl Resilience Book Collection pays homage to people of color, and their adroitness with the practice of resilience.Sharing stories, having the courage to put masks away, unveiling who they are at their core, and acknowledging that people of color are indeed scarred, yet healing gives us the validation we deserve in this world. While society magnifies these scars through some forms of media, entertainment, and various organized systems, people of color have used these occurrences as tools of resilience and motivation.With these stories, may our minds and souls create conscious narratives that acknowledge where we presently are and continue for generations to come and experience what we all desire — to just be human!
