“To build a world that works for everyone, we must first make the radical decision to love every facet of ourselves…‘The body is not an apology' is the mantra we should all embrace.” —Kimberlé Crenshaw, legal scholar and founder and Executive Director, African American Policy Forum “Taylor invites us to break up with shame, to deepen our literacy, and to liberate our practice of celebrating every body and never apologizing for this body that is mine and takes care of me so well.” —Alicia Garza, cocreator of the Black Lives Matter Global Network and Strategy + Partnerships Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance “Her manifesto on radical self-love is life altering—required reading for anyone who struggles with body image.” —Claire Foster, Foreword Review Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies. The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world—for us all.

You will meet a girl who felt the urge to honor her own old knowings before she could even name them, or trust them to lead her to inner happiness. My prayer is that you use her story to reflect on your own. Both she and I will talk to you throughout these pages, in efforts to tug you away from temporary, outwardly focused inspiration, and over to your own old wisdom. If you are just starting out on the path to self-expression, this book will reflect aspects of your own story. Use that reflection to create a strategy for ownership and expression of your voice. Whether in your home, in your vocation, or simply in your mirror, you are entitled to the full knowledge and expression of your uniqueness. This book will remind you of that.
Unlock the key to true happiness with this inspirational guide to a radical new way of looking at self-love. Without supply, you cannot meet demand. Without money of your own, you cannot give it to others in need. Without food in the pantry, you cannot feed the hungry. Why, then, do you so often insist on giving love to everyone around you without first taking time to build reserves of that love inside yourself? Helping others is a noble cause, but it can wreak havoc on the psyche without a deliberate focus on yourself. Author Lisa Kang knows from experience the cost of philanthropy when self-care is neglected in favor of meeting others' needs. Burnout, exhaustion, and a nervous breakdown lie at the end of that road. After experiencing all three, Kang made a choice. She paved a new road to philanthropy, and it's one that starts at the source: self-love. I Revolution challenges the notion that love is painful, that self-love is synonymous with selfishness, and that people or circumstances can be viewed in simple, black-and-white terms. It redefines unconditional love and teaches us that we're worthy of meeting our own needs and of love in its purest, most painless form.
