We Rise is a rich collection of stories that truly celebrate the mountaintops and share the valleys of the African American woman's experience; highlighting her moments of strength, as well as her struggles. In centering Black women's stories, the unique ability to make their own communities while combating centuries of oppression is an essential component in our continued resistance to systemic racism and sexism. We Rise shines light on the United States' undeniable truths far beyond a single narrative to showcase Black women's lives in all their complexities. Author Jasmine Poole prioritizes many voices: single mothers, widows, religious leaders, politicians, lawyers, doctors, nurses, breast cancer survivors, activists, and women who bear unimaginable scares. The result is a starting point for exploring Black women's history and a testament to the beauty, richness, rhythm, tragedy, heartbreak, rage, and enduring love that abounds in the spirit of Black women in communities throughout the nation. We Rise is a timeless diary of everyday African American women who have survived to share their stories. These women will forever have everlasting impacts on you, the reader.
