MY REVIEW

Black Girl Limited is a very empowering read. I love the fact that this book can be read by any age, nationality and gender. This book spotlights one of the biggest issues in the world: Racism. It focuses on how to end racism and break generational curses that has been passed down for forever. It empowers you as an individual to make positive change in your life and for the well-being of others in the world.

Glover invites you into snippets of her past, where she endured so much pain and abuse, to tell her story of healing plus give us an insight of how cruel people in the world has been and still are. To give us examples of how the generational curse and racism has been passed down. I also loved the BGL Code Of Ethics and BGL Code Of Conduct presented in this book. They will help guide you on your journey of empowerment. As the way the people in the world are right now, every human being should read this book. There has been so much widespread hatred, violence and racist behavior going on and I believe that this book will be a great guide for each and everyone to help them find self-love, empowerment, to break their generational curse & more.

There were a few things about this book that annoyed me, which was the repetition of certain sentences. However, once I finished the book, I came to the conclusion that it was written that way for a reason. Overall, this book was empowering. Not to mention, there is also a journal at the end for you to help you keep track of your progress. Black Girl Limited was a very different read for me. It was a more positive, eye-opening read. You should definitely check it out. Besides, it was the #1 New Release in African Literature AND in Historical African Biographies since it’s release this March (in paperback) and it’s eBook release late July. Go get it!!!

I give this book five stars and recommend it to others.
