“Stick and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you.” —Unknown Do you know the origins of the many stereotypes that plague the Black community—especially Black women? Are you aware of the social constructs put in place to reinforce these stereotypes? How detrimental are the effects of these stereotypes to Black women and their community? Angry. Loud. Nagging. Insulting. Vindictive. Immoral. These are the words used and reinforced by the media, publishing, television, film, and music industries to describe Black women. What if I told you that we have been lied to? What if I told you that we have been bamboozled, and that words DO hurt, and that these words have not only hurt us individually but collectively as well? In Black Women Need Love Too: A Book About Relationships, Self-Love and Community, Jones leaves no stone unturned as she propels her readers to Stay Awake, Be Aware, Be Informed, and Take Action.
