You Are More Than Magic: The Black and Brown Girls' Guide to Finding Your Voice

by Minda Harts
Price: $14.39/ea — List price: $17.99

When you’re a girl of color, figuring out how to find your voice and make sure everyone around you can hear it is essential. CEO and bestselling author Minda Harts knows—she’s been there. And she’s ready to walk you through it all with her own stories of success and the missteps that helped her grow—from running for high school student council when she was barely tall enough to reach the podium, to starting her own com­pany, The Memo LLC, that helps women of color advocate for themselves and their ca­reers. Now she’s here to hype you up and be real with you about:

  • Building your squad: what to look for in a friend, finding mentors, and setting boundaries for healthy relationships
  • Saying what you mean without saying it mean: prepping yourself for self-advocacy, negotiations, and tough conversations
  • Leaning into courage: affirming yourself, dealing with no’s, and speaking up even when you feel like the “only one”

With lots of practical advice and real-life anecdotes, as well as questions for reflection and further resources, this book is all about finding your own unique path to success—at school, at work, at home, and beyond. Success is far from magical, but you’ve al­ready got the tools you need to figure out your next best moves. And your stand-in big sis Minda is here to help you every step of the way!

“A love letter to Black and brown girls and an acknowledgement of the real work it takes to make magic.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Every parent of a Black or brown girl should buy this book, read it to their child, and pass it along to the other parents in their circle. . . . Black and brown girls are finally getting their time in the sunshine, and it’s quite a joy to see Minda Harts shining an even brighter light on the sheer beauty of Black and brown girlhood.”—Evette Dionne, National Book Award longlisted and Coretta Scott King honor-winning author of Lifting as We Climb
