Reader Review: I’m Still Here

I’m Still Here” is the author’s short autobiographical account of what it’s like to be a Black woman in majority-white corporate and church settings. The book is insightful, moving, and should at least be taken as a free public service announcement for what not to do as well-intentioned white people who claim to love diversity. She’s relatable and human; raw in her frustration, honest in her evaluation of her hopes, and candid about how her faith carries her through it. Read it to avoid the pitfalls of ignorant whiteness or commiserate with another Black woman.

Three words that describe this book: Insightful, African-American, autobiography

You might want to pick this book up if: You want to become more sensitive to the experiences of people of color, specifically Black Americans.
