Yoga Cocaine

Jessica is an incredible character with a powerful story. Following her journey tugged at my heart and although the subjects addressed (addiction, relapse, recovery, trauma) were highly charged, the author’s irreverent way of writing also infused humor into the character’s voice. The book, like life, was dramatic, comedic and everything in between. If it were possible to give 6 stars, I would.

It can be difficult to find reliable information that amplifies the voices and the viewpoints of those who have direct experience dealing with diversity, equity and inclusion. In Demystifying Diversity: Embracing our Shared Humanity, Biracial journalist Daralyse Lyons has interviewed more than 100 individuals—academics, politicians, thought-leaders, advocates, activists and even an incarcerated inmate—and reveals her most important information and insights. By engaging with this text, you will find areas of human intersection and connection that challenge your biases and break down your barriers. Through empathy and understanding, we can create a more inclusive world.

"The work of any reconciliation along the lines of the basis of identity requires vulnerability, a vulnerability that we are told is not of value to the American way of being."
-- Paul Reese, Master of Divinity, Yale Divinity School

"Exposure and practice prepare people for unpredictable racial moments."
-- Dr. Howard Stevenson, director, Racial Empowerment Collaborative

"We are siblings in humanity. No one has superiority over another, except by their character.
-- Nihad Awad, executive director and co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

"In the present—and correcting the ills of the past—our public policy needs to always move towards equity. If we can do that, I think, as a society, we're going to get better."
-- Senator Sharif Street, third senatorial district of Philadelphia
