In a world saturated with division, uncertainty, and fear, one woman refused to allow another day to go by without giving black women and girls a tangible reminder of their individual & collective greatness. Self-publishing powerhouse Tabitha D. James, M.Ed., recently released her latest body of work “Dear Black Girl: Timeless Gems for Brown Girls Bound to Win” to unite an entire culture. Pouring nearly three decades of mementos and meaningful encounters with beautifully unique, vastly talented, and amazingly intelligent queens into a highly relatable and inspirational memoir, Ms. Tab explores the complexities and similarities of everyday women & girls – demonstrating that we all have our own stories.
In sharing these timeless gems to help black girls and women who want to WIN, Ms. Tab has managed to pre-sell books in over 95 US cities and two countries, only 15 days prior to the book’s official launch. The buzz over “Dear Black Girl: Timeless Gems for Brown Girls Bound to Win” is undeniable and the author and her team are stopping at nothing to ensure it reaches the hands and hearts of at least 2,900 brown & black girls by January 2021!
