“Practical, hilarious, and common sense advice for self-care and self-recovery.”—Common Boundary

Wise, intimate, and full of practical insights, In the Company of My Sisters is the first book by a Black psychotherapist to address the issue of self-esteem in Black women's lives. Julia A. Boyd has drawn from a wealth of experience—her own and that of her "sister circle"—to take a hard and honest look at the realities and issues Black women face. "I wrote this book to validate and celebrate who we are," Boyd has said. "We have been the recipients of many distorted messages about our ethnicity and our femaleness."
