Finish this Sentence

Finish this Sentence is about a personal experience in dealing with racism and healing from its effects. As this book weaves through the anger and anxiety provoked by racism, it points to the ultimate realization: one is neither the conditioning nor the incessant chatter that racism can provoke. Rather, one is powerful and able to arrest those harmful thoughts. Awakening to these truths have helped Leslie to heal. She hopes that her work will be beneficial to others as well.

“If you’re Black and you’ve ever needed to hear, ‘you’re not crazy’ while allowing yourself madness, if you’ve ever needed to be shown scars that mirror your own, there is space for you in Finish this Sentence.”
