Collection of essays from Black Buddhists sharing their journey. As with all collections, there are hits and misses. I appreciated the essays that focused on mental liberation, issues that may arise in a POC Sanga, and recommended personal practices. Especially the idea to practice metta meditation for a benefactor, even if it’s a famous person that you admire but have never met.

A welcome look at the intersection of race (especially the experience of Black writers) and the teachings of the Buddha, told through the stories and voices of a myriad of writers!

a collection of 8 essays by Black Buddhist teachers. Obviously not the target audience for this book, but I found the commentary on race, trauma, belonging, resilience incredibly insightful and broadly applicable. great read
