The kind of literature sistas can get behind of.

Despite making up the majority of the most numerous minorities in the United States and the United Kingdom, and compounding with the fact that even though media representation has been steadily growing, black women are still being underserved on how they are culturally represented.

Despite the fact that the stereotype of your typical sassy black sista with more than a healthy dose of spicy attitude is more than valid, there’s so much more about black women that are downplayed in favor of more ghettoized portrayal, and that is not fine. Instead of letting the TV dictate what a dark colored woman should act like, turn to the pages of these books written with black women in mind and rediscover your spirit as a sista.

I am recommending this book because homeownership rates among the African American community are at it’s lowest rates since before the recession in 2008/2009. Many women of color are not homeowners because they believe their credit is too bad or they don’t have enough savings when in fact they may be able to purchase a home if they start with some minor shifts in their thinking and spending. Buy Homes Not Shoes will guide them through that process and help them on the road to homeownership.

This book provides a detailed look at how destruction in life stems from a deep lack of knowledge. During her career as a hair care professional for over thirty years, author Jennifer ‘Pam’ Davis continually noticed that women of African descent were dealing with increasing hair damage. Davis writes from her experience as a hair care professional as she explains how discussions with these clients lead her towards the conclusion that misguided information leads to destruction and suffering. This realization that the absence of truth is due to a detachment from fundamental values of the Holy Scriptures led towards the creation of this book. Davis set out on a mission to explain to readers the importance of the Holy Scriptures, the fabric of society, and that its pages of knowledge will lead towards resolution of societal problems and create unity among all. This book is perfect for all who have a desire to connect with her experience as a devoted hair care professional and her journey towards truth for the soul of humanity.
