About the event
About the Course:
In celebration of Black History Month, we have invited Jessica Wilson, the author of It’s Always Been Ours: Rewriting the Story of Black Women’s Bodies to join RCC Coach Devrae Hudson in a Q/A discussion about her book.
About the Author & Book:
In "It’s Always Been Ours", eating disorder specialist and storyteller Jessica Wilson, MS, RD challenges us to rethink what having a "good" body means in contemporary society. By centering the bodies of Black women in her cultural discussions of body image, food, health, and wellness, Wilson argues that we can interrogate white supremacy’s hold on us and reimagine the ways we think about, discuss, and tend to our bodies.
"It's Always Been Ours" is a tour-de-force and a revelation that addresses not only where we are, but how we got here—and offers a reclamation for all Black women, centering Black women in their own healing and prioritizing them in the movement for body liberation.
