I have never read ANYTHING that has made me feel this SEEN. It’s the sweetest love letter to those who are a rock for everyone else, but are often taken for granted. Dear Strong Black Woman dares to disrupt what we’ve been taught about self-love and self-care. This book is a literary balm, soothing mind, body and spirit. I can’t wait to gift it to all of the Strong Black Women that I know.
— Peachie Wimbush-Polk
A real life depiction of every black woman’s struggle and strength. Each letter captures the essence of a black woman’s heart.
— Ta’lor L. Pinkston, The Heart Advocate

You are beautiful.
You are also 100% human.
