Author Tour: Tinisha N. Johnson "Lessons Learned"

It is with great pleasure to introduce Tinisha N. Johnson, author of Lessons Learned: Loving Yourself as a Black Woman.

The target audience for Lessons Learned: Loving Yourself as a Black Woman says it all in the title – primarily black women. The secondary audience is all women. I decided to write a book specifically catered towards black woman, because sometimes African-American women experience challenges and situations that other races of women may not necessary face on a day-to-day basis or ever. These challenges and situations range from hair texture, culture, relationships with black man, negative stereotypes, conquering racism and sexism, and being the minority of minorities, just to name a few. Of course, all women regardless of race deals with issues of self-esteem, and this too is addressed in the book.

When women read this book, I hope to revolutionize their mind into a whole new way of thinking about themselves. Day in and day out, can sometimes seem like a struggle or fight, but I want to open new ways of thinking about what happiness is. I want women to realize how important self-love is and regularly take advantage of it in their lives. 

Tinisha Nicole Johnson is an author, writer, and poet. She resides in Denver, Colorado with her two children. Besides writing, Tinisha also hosts political and sports teleconferences as a profession.

  1. Certainly there are times when all women feel like the minority. I try to always embrace happiness, so I could probably learn from this book.
    Thanks to you and the author for the interview.

  2. I'm not Black, but am Native, so I connect with the minority. All women should embrace books like this despite race, because it empowers us all.

    Great post!

  3. Thank you so much for hosting me today Tweezle. I appreciate the coments above. Thanks ladies.
