Rock My Soul: Black People and Self-Esteem

by Bell Hooks - £10.99  Washington Square Press (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780743456067 | ISBN 10: 0743456068

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 priviledged 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.
