Fattily Ever After: The Fat, Black Girls' Guide to Living Life Unapologetically

by Stephanie Yeboah Author

Too often, body positivity centers the experience of white women. In her empowering debut book, Stephanie Yeboah—author, blogger, and fat-acceptance activist—courageously and candidly discusses her own experience as a black, plus-sized woman who has had to deal with racism and fat-phobia since birth. From being bullied at school to being objectified and fetishized to being marginalized, Yeboah’s journey to self-acceptance began by changing her narrative around body-image and what it means to be beautiful. With striking color illustrations, an engaging layout, and tips galore, Fattily Ever After features stories and analyses of everyday misogynoir (misogyny directed toward black women), and includes topics on dating, performing femininity, the portrayal of black, plus-sized women in the media, practical advice on fashion and style, how to gain confidence, self-care tips, and so much more.
