Publisher's Summary

A global movement guided by love.
Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.
The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world - for us all.

Listen to this!

I want to read this book over and over. It is absolutely amazing. Here are my takeaways: We cannot change the world without first changing ourselves. We cannot create a world of love and acceptance without loving and accepting ourselves. Our self includes our body. Sonya Renee Taylor is poignant and to the point. She gives you the whats, whys, and hows, but it's up to each of us to sort through our dislike, shame, and dissociate we have with our bodies. Despite the damage our capitalist society has wrought on each of us in distinct ways, it is up to each of us to mend and restore the relationship with our body. Radical self love is not only possible, it's necessary and urgent. Read this.
