“My own path to joy has been blurred by hardship, but part of my journey is that I refuse to believe that all of my negative experiences are tethered to being a Black woman, even though it can feel like this, even when some people want me to feel like this,” writes Chelene Knight in her latest book, Let It Go: Free Yourself from Old Beliefs and Find a New Path to Joy (HarperCollins $25.00). Drawing on personal experience and advice of leaders from Black communities, Knight presents a compilation of hard-worn tools for discovering happiness. Through conversation and reflection, this book showcases a broad spectrum of Black realities and redefines what we think joy is. 9781443466455
