Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-Esteem Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Rock My Soul, world-renowned scholar and visionary bell hooks takes an in-depth look at one of the most critical issues facing African Americans: a collective wounded self-esteem that has prevailed from slavery to the present day.

Why do so many African Americans — whether privileged or poor, urban or suburban, young or old — live in a state of chronic anxiety, fear, and shame?

In Rock My Soul, hooks gets to the heart and soul of the African-American identity crisis, offering critical insight and hard-won wisdom about what it takes to heal the scars of the past, promote and maintain self-esteem, and lay down the roots for a grounded community with a prosperous future.

Synopsis:

In "Rock My Soul" hooks breaks through a wall of collective denial to tell a sobering truth--that crippling low self-esteem has reached epidemic proportions among blacks. hooks takes readers to the heart of the matter and shows why it has been difficult--if not impossible--for America to create a culture that promotes and sustains healthy self-esteem.
