Description

The Emmy Award-winning legal journalist and co-host of The View Sunny Hostin chronicles her journey from growing up in a South Bronx housing project to becoming an assistant US attorney and journalist in this powerful memoir that offers an intimate and unique look at identity, intolerance, and injustice.

“What are you?” has followed Sunny Hostin from the beginning of her story, as she grew up half Puerto Rican and half African-American raised by teenage parents in the South Bronx. Escaping poverty and the turbulence of her early life through hard work, a bit of luck and earning academic scholarships to college and law school, Sunny immersed herself in the workings of the criminal justice system. 

In Washington, D.C., Sunny became a federal prosecutor, soon parlaying her wealth of knowledge of the legal system into a successful career as a legal journalist. She was one of the first national reporters to cover Trayvon Martin’s death - which her producers erroneously labeled “just a local story.”  

Today, an inescapable voice from the top echelons of news and entertainment, Sunny uses her platform to advocate for social justice and give a voice to the marginalized. In her signature no-holds-barred, straight-up style, Sunny opens up and shares her intimate struggles with fertility and personal turmoil, and reflects on the high-stakes cases and stories she worked on as a prosecutor and during her time at CNN, Fox News, ABC, and The View

Timely, poignant, and moving, I Am These Truths is the story of a woman living between two worlds, and learning to bridge them together to fight for what’s right.

Outstanding person and book

Asunción Hostin is one of the most inspiring people on our planet. I admire her RBG likeness in that she perseveres in the face of daunting and unequal situations. I admit her studiousn and thoroughness that makes her opinion s informed and worth my time. This is a heartwarming g tale of many triumphs, not least if which was hers and Manny’s struggle to have children. And what a romance is their courtship and marriage. One of the best books I have read in theee quarters of a century.

My Hero!

I've always liked the View, even with the changing cast. Whoopie has been my Idol for many years. Then came Sunni! She was #2 next to Whoopie and will continue in that spot. I love Sunni's style, grace and poise! Reading her story only makes me like her more! Her writing and speaking style only complement her phenominal looks and presence. Viva la Negro/Latina! Via con dios!

Insightful Memoir

The View has always been as good as a cup of coffee to wake up to in the morning. I've watched since the inception with Barbara Walters and the rest. So I had to grab this Audible book. I have seen Sunny Hostin grow on this show. I've seen her change a stance or two as she learned from the ladies or just time and news on her own. Not in a way that is wishy-washy but with knowledge and grace to see another side. To me that makes her one of the strongest women on the show. She doesn't shout at the others, she isn't rude to her elders. She is a shining example of what we all should be as we interact with others who might not have similar points of view. In this book, Sunny shows us her life and how she became who she is now. I loved the whole book. I hope you get the chance to read or listen to it. Sunny narrates the Audible version and I find that makes it like she's right in the room telling her story.
