Life, I Swear: Intimate Stories from Black Women on Identity, Healing, and Self-Trust

by Chloe Dulce Louvouezo Author

A gorgeous collection of essays from the popular podcast of the same name, Life, I Swear, this volume is a testament to resilience in the face of hardship and the ways that Black women have formed community and persevered through the myriad challenges the world likes to throw at them. Exploring themes such as motherhood, identity, family, trauma, and mental health, curator Chloe Dulce Louvouezo brings together more than a dozen stories from Black women from a variety of backgrounds, and seeks to foster meaningful conversation, reflection, and grace by sharing these stories with the world. A powerful book.
