A heart-warming book that demonstrates the importance of finding personal joy, even in lives that may be plagued by trauma. The author shows that Black joy is a powerful resource to be drawn upon. She shows how to find it, and how to work on the self-healing necessary to live with joy. A life without joy can lead to dangerous health problems, she warns, while a life with joy empowers and enriches people. “A gorgeous and heartbreaking read.” ~ Kirkus Revews
