Sample Book Insights:
#1 You are the first, and you have often been the only. You are the first Black woman in more educational settings or professional settings than you can count. You have accomplished more than most people in your family and community have.
#2 First and Only is a love letter, a manifesto for progress, and a leadership resource. It is the opening argument to a trial on career advancement, asserting that the path for success for Black women is self-care, self-worth, and a willingness to push for progress even as we fight for our liberation.
#3 The stress of racism is even affecting our health, as Black women have higher death rates for nearly all cancers than white women, and are twice as likely to experience infertility problems.
#4 The book provides strategies on how to overcome career hurdles and racism, as well as insight on how to be successful from a racial justice and equity perspective.
