Praise for Sacred Text for Black Folks Soul
EbonyJanice is the rare and beautiful talent—someone who can so clearly synthesize the need for liberation in conjunction with the need for joy in a way that is palatable and needed. She is a master of language and the heart space, with a connection to community that is paramount in her work. She is making us all better, simply by being.
Joel L. Daniels–
This book is like the spoonful of honey that EbonyJanice ingests within its pages. A lyrical sermon from an eloquent and bodacious preacher––Sacred Text for Black Folks Soul is so simple, yet so divine. A holy reminder that life is sweet, too, even in the midst of violence. A mindfulness practice that helps us to zero in on the liberating and magical truth of Black love and let everything else float away. For all who want liberation to be their primary vocation––this is your song, too.
Christena Cleveland, author of God Is a Black Woman–
EbonyJanice's "Sacred Text for Black Folks' Soul" is a spiritually charged book! I've referred to it often when needing a reminder to "be love" - to embody radical love for my Black self, to seek Black love that goes beyond binaries or trite representations, and to stay on the side of all that deeply loves Black life beyond space & time.
In a similar key as Baby Suggs, Holy, from Toni Morrison's Beloved, EbonyJanice reminds us that it is the love, the heart, and the spirits of Black folx that we must see as inherently worthy.
That is to say, EbonyJanice, Holy, has created a work that we can deeply engage from cover to cover...
Or utilize as daily devotional...
Or practice divination & bibliomancy with...
Or leave on the altars of Black folx, charging it with the spirit-energy of BlackLife...
Or turn into an altar - a place of remembrance for how far we have come and the love-joy that can sustain us into the future.
