Julie's pick: Sonya Renee Taylor, poet and social activist, has crafted a vital and brilliant guide that will carry you into the root of yourself. Each page offers insight and tools to understand our bodies in relation to both our own hearts, to the bodies of others, and to societal expectations and assumptions. In her words, “Radical self-love is indeed our inherent natural state, but social, political, and economic systems of oppression of have distanced us from that knowing.” If you’ve been oppressed, felt trapped in your own body, judged in your own body, or you’ve ever judged the bodies of others, this book is for you. BONUS: She’s scattered Unapologetic Inquiries and Radical Reflections throughout which function as life altering writing prompts and conversation starters.

About the book: Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies. 

The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world--for us all.
