Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We're Not Hurting Kindle Edition
"The world is full of damaged people inflicting pain upon other damaged people. The time for sweeping issues such as depression under the rug in the African-American community has long since passed. We need to face our demons head on and defeat them so that we can truly appreciate all that life has to offer...This book will serve as an eye-opener to many and an inspiration to all." - Zane, NY Times Bestselling Author of Addicted and NAACP Image Award Winner for Breaking the Cycle "Black Pain takes a candid and in-depth look at depression in black America. The book provides hope to those who battle with the disease and offers an understanding for the friends and loved ones who care for them. I highly recommend this book." - Bishop T.D. Jakes, Senior Pastor, The Potter's House "The racism, the struggle, the feelings of hopelessness-it hurts like hell. Black Pain shows us why we are dying in the streets." - Jamie Hector, actor, The Wire "Terrie dares to bring out what so many have not had the courage to confront, having learned that you can never heal until you expose what hurts you. Black Pain is an opportunity to reach your breakthrough moment." - Rev. Al Sharpton "Black Pain shows us how to recognize that depression that may be hidden away and deal with it. It pushes us to give a voice to the pain without passing it on to others." - Patti LaBelle "Black Pain shows us that it is time that we all talk about our depression and fight with the same vigor that we fight to achieve racial justice." - Charles Ogletree "It boldly confronts the reality of our pain head on, flowing like hot lyrics over the perfect beat." - Sean "Diddy" Combs "Black Pain shines a spotlight on the issue, getting the message out that we must identify, understand, and seek the help we need to heal." - Danny Glover, Actor/Activist "Black Pain is an immensely readable and down-to-earth book. It will motivate black people who suffer with depression in silence to seek help. This book shines a bright light on the darkness of despair" - Alvin F. Poussaint, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "Black Pain is just the conversation starter that we need to begin tackling the taboo topic of depression. Out of the discussion comes the healing." - Tavis Smiley, Author, Television Personality and Radio Host --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Informative.Reviewed in Canada on 17 September 2018
Good read! Eye opening to the struggles of emotional disorder among African American.
Awesome, awesomeReviewed in the United States on 23 July 2018
Awesome, awesome, awesome book!! This is definitely real talk that's needed in the African-American community. Thank you Terrie Williams and all those who shared their stories. I recommend this book to every African-American because we all deal with depression at some point in our lives and it's not a show of weakness to get the help we so desparately need. Let's not suffer when we don't have to.

You are not by yourself!Reviewed in the United States on 19 August 2015
I am struggling to get through this book because I have to stop and let myself calm down before I can start again! So powerful and so true! I wondered why I was having so much trouble with therapy. I haven't touched the surface of my problems, and I don't know that my therapists have either. This book gives me a new perspective and a desire to try again, but this time with a clear eye on the fact that it isn't just me, and that my issues are not unique. Yeah, we are in pain, and it isn't pretty. Thank you Ms. Williams.

Naami's KudosReviewed in the United States on 25 September 2017
Excellent, excellent and exceptional work. Ms. Williams is to be highly commended for examining and explaining a subject that has been mainly overlooked by everyone, including social scientists who have studied practically every aspect of African-American life. Kudos to Ms. Williams for baring her own experiences in order to bring this subject to light. I highly recommend it as required reading by all.
