Product Details


“A guide for the sister who longs to be free, who longs for her daughters, her mother, her aunts, her play cousins, her classmates who are Black women to also be free—to be free together. Grab this book and your best friends and work through it together. Then share it with younger women and older women. Freedom is for every age, and we come to it in different ways. Tamara has done the impossible—she has given us a guide to freedom no matter who we are or where we are in life.”
—Suzanne Walsh, President, Bennett College

“This is a potent and impactful book! Tamara Winfrey Harris offers a brilliant exploration of self-liberation, tapping into ancient wisdom that underscores a profound truth: regardless of external influences or societal conditioning, we are already whole and complete. This work serves as a road map, extending a beautiful invitation to all Black women to examine, unlearn, and rediscover the undeniable truth and beauty of who we really are.”
—Nikki Myers, founder of Y12SR: The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery

“This is a book Black women need now more than ever. In a time when the common narrative is that endless opportunities are available to all, Black women still live under the shadow of age-old stories and stereotypes that can make us feel limited. Winfrey Harris reminds us that we can take off our capes and our crowns—that we are not required to be perfect or to save any soul but our own. With both practical reminders (practice breath work, write in a journal) and words of inspiration, this book promises to guide us to ‘the freedom to discover and live out your truths.’”
—Tamara Jeffries, educator, editorial consultant, and former Senior Editor, Yoga Journal

A Black Woman’s Guide to Getting Free is a road map to Black femme liberation, drawn from Tamara Winfrey Harris’s frank feminist and anti-racist analysis and grounded in the real stories and experiences of Black women. It is a love letter, from writer to reader, that demands we love our authentic selves first and fiercely until the power of that love extends to our mothers, sisters, and daughters. This, the author says, is how we get free together. I believe her.”
—Deesha Philyaw, author of The Secret Lives of Church Ladies
