Popular blogger and columnist for major national publications Sophia Nelson gives advice on how to succeed for single, professional black women.  Since Michelle Obama was thrust into the spotlight as the first black First Lady in January 2009, everywhere you look, from major newspapers, documentary films, and national TV talk shows to music videos, universities, and corporate settings, professional black women are a hot topic of discussion — for better or worse.

In Black Woman Redefined, Sophia A. Nelson, respected national opinion columnist, JET Magazine feature political writer, and MSNBC analyst arms black women of this present and the next generation with the necessary tools and encouragement to redefine themselves and overcome destructive notions floating around in the media that black women can’t have it all-a career, a love life, and a healthy balance. In a sentence: this book helps black women take their lives from one of achievement, to one of love and fulfillment in this new age of First Lady Michelle Obama.

Black Woman Redefined teaches black women how to transform unsettling trends, such as high workplace stress, damaging stereotypes, emotional wellness problems, and challenging personal life options, to better achieve:

• Positive, multi-dimensional relationships

• Balanced and emotionally rewarding lives

• Good health & financial freedom

• Spirituality that doesn’t reject their human sexuality

• Satisfying, successful and flexible careers

I found the book to be engaging and enlightening in the fact  that she approached the modern black woman. There is less of the woe as me that is typical in women’s self help books. It’s a must read.
