MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV)-- She's "dispelling myths and discovering fulfillment".
Sophia A. Nelson is a woman tackling the tough issues that many black women deal with today. In her books insert, she says "This is the rallying cry [she] wants all of America to grapple with when it comes to the way we view and treat black women." Black Woman Defined was inspired, in part, but what Nelson calls ‘open season on accomplished black women,' which reached a tipping point in 2007 when Don Imus referred to black female Rutgers University basketball co-eds as an inappropriate way. Since then, we have seen so many strong black women conquer, achieve, and do great things in the face of adversity.
Nelson's life experiences brought her to the conclusions that she draws in the book, with help from experts, professional surveys and interviews from high profile black women looking to spread the word about what they have evolved into.
Nelson will be signing copies of her book Sunday, August 28 from 3-5 at the Barnes and Noble at Towne Centre in Mount Pleasant. Get your copy of one of the hottest books on store shelves right now that is sure to have people talking!
