An altar of words: wisdom, comfort, and inspiration for African American women
In this loving, personal, and healing book, acclaimed activist and visionary Byllye Avery shows how the power of words can transform and enrich our lives. An altar is a sacred place for reflection, self-examination, and renewal. Altars provide a refuge, offering safety and solace while we explore the spirit within us. An Altar of Words provides an opportunity to create a verbal sacred space. In intimate meditations, Avery examines words such as Activism, Belonging, Courage, Love, Pride, Sisternomics, and Wisdom, and encourages each of us to strengthen our inner spirit, make changes, and be at peace.
