2018 Vancouver Book Award winning author Chelene Knight’s untitled commissioned book explores self-love in Black communities, and is a celebration of the diverse and intersectional experiences of being Black, of community building, and deeply rooted commitments to personal growth. Even before the current global conversations around racism began, Black folks from various intersections and communities have embodied and redefined self-love for themselves. This book unpacks the many ways self-love is an act of reclaiming space that whiteness has historically held on to. It explores what self-love looks like for these communities alongside acknowledging the multitude of struggles they are faced with. A combination of Chelene’s experiences and family history and the experiences of a variety of other Black leaders.
