Putting on Our Crowns
Did you know that inside everyone of us as women is the power to find our inner queendom? According to the Queen-Queen Latifah that is-“there seem to be an epidemic of lousy self-esteem in this country, especially among young women,…We ladies have stopped putting ourselves first, and I wanted to share something with you that would help you feel empowered and make you recognize the individual and innate beauty that is you.” Put on Your Crown: Life-Changing Moments on the Path to Queendom is Grammy Award winning songstress, talk show hostess, Oscar nominated actress, Queen Latifah’s author debut.
In her book, Queen is quick to point out to readers that she “never set out to be anyone’s role model. That’s too much responsibility for any flawed human being to carry.” She also lets it be known that this is not some mapped out self-help book either. Instead, she bares her soul and shares some of her most intimate stories and experiences of success, fear, love and much more to serve as guides or lights on readers individual journeys through life.
Put on Your Crown is pretty much like saying ‘here are the mistakes I’ve made. This is what works and this is what doesn’t work.’ A conversation similar to the ones many of us have shared with older siblings or our closest friends. This is certainly a must read for all women out there, especially those of color. Join the female empowerment movement by picking up this book. Don’t forget to share this book with your daughters, sisters, mothers and friends.
