A Collective Breath

Stories of Being Black in America and Visions of Change



$27.99 $34.95

In this important work, I took a moment to pause, and finally allow myself to feel all the feelings I had been bottling up, ignoring, and even avoiding throughout the years, through my refusal to participate in conversations about race in the United States. The May 2020 killing of George Floyd made it impossible to do so any more. In writing my piece for this collaborative work, I began to deal with the secondary trauma that had been keeping me silent in recent years. This book is not only for those who are on that journey of healing and self reflection, but also for those who have no lived experience being Black in America, and who wonder what it could possibly be like. Join us, in taking a collective breath.

A Collective Breath’s collaborators’ candid, personal thoughts and feelings reveal the many challenges that Blacks face in America today—challenges they may not directly divulge to others but that are part of their realities, and they offer ideas for solutions and actions to pave the way to a more optimistic future...

In A Collective Breath, the contributors do not hold back. They take a collective breath—the breaths that George Floyd, Manuel Ellis, Javier Ambler, Eric Garner, and so many others could not take—to document for the world how they feel in this moment; the lenses through which they, as Blacks in America, view and live their lives; and what they believe needs to change today for a different tomorrow.
