Publisher's Summary

Black women are the single most religious demographic in the United States, yet they are among the poorest, least educated, and least healthy groups in the nation. Drawing on the author's own past experience as an evangelical minister and her present work as a secular counselor and researcher, The Ebony Exodus Project makes a direct connection between the church and the plight of black women. Through interviews with African American women who have left the church, the author reveals the shame and suffering often caused by the church - and the resulting happiness, freedom, and sense of purpose these women have felt upon walking away from it. This audiobook calls on other black women to honestly reflect on their relationship with religion and challenges them to consider that perhaps the answers to their problems rest not inside a church, but in themselves.

Glad this was written

I, too am in life away from many years of church ministry& all the things she described...I would leave myself African conscious, but doubt I'll ever be atheist. But I will be discussing this w/my other preacher friends who have all either left church or who or toying w/leaving...Good is up to something.The liess& religious dogma has finally run its course....
