Military Mom Talk Radio hosted by Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd, and produced by Rick Swanson, welcomes Candace Sandy of Souls of My Sisters.
Two high school friends, and former Simon & Schuster employees felt an evolution in themselves Dawn marie Daniels and Candace Sandy and searched the shelves to find smart, helpful information that mirrored their lives as successful, upwardly mobile, women who still grappled with day-to-day issues. They turned to self-helps books and inspirational titles and felt motivated at first, but still noticed that their experience as Black women was not fully looked at or addressed by the literature on the bookshelves. “I noticed that a new approach was needed, one that would fit for today’s woman whether she worked in the boardroom or the classroom,” stated Dawn who launched the literary career of New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant.
Dawn and Candace felt compelled to publish these stories in Souls of My Sisters: Black Women Break Their Silence, Tell Their Stories, and Heal Their Spirits, a compilation of true life experiences of women of color. In Souls of My Sisters, women from all walks of life candidly reveal how they overcame challenges just like those faced by women every day. From Patti Labelle to Mary J. Blige to single moms and spiritual leaders, these diverse groups of women have bonded together in print, to discuss issues that have touched their lives. Ten years later, Souls of My Sisters continues to produce book tours, online resources, book clubs and a imprint Souls of My Sisters Books/Kensington Publishing Corp.
