    Description

    "Tarana Burke, I just finished Unbound. Searing. Powerful. Needed!! Thank you." (Oprah)

    This program is read by the author.

    From the founder and activist behind one of the largest movements of the 20th and 21st centuries, the "me too" movement, Tarana Burke debuts a powerful memoir about her own journey to saying those two simple yet infinitely powerful words - me too - and how she brought empathy back to an entire generation in one of the largest cultural events in American history.

    Tarana didn’t always have the courage to say "me too". As a child, she reeled from her sexual assault, believing she was responsible. Unable to confess what she thought of as her own sins for fear of shattering her family, her soul split in two. One side was the bright, intellectually curious third generation Bronxite steeped in Black literature and power, and the other was the bad, shame-ridden girl who thought of herself as a vile rule breaker, not of a victim. She tucked one away, hidden behind a wall of pain and anger, which seemed to work...until it didn’t.

    Tarana fought to reunite her fractured soul, through organizing, pursuing justice, and finding community. In her debut memoir, she shares her extensive work supporting and empowering Black and Brown girls, and the devastating realization that to truly help these girls she needed to help that scared, ashamed child still in her soul. She needed to stop running and confront what had happened to her, for Heaven and Diamond and the countless other young Black women for whom she cared. They gave her the courage to embrace her power. A power which in turn she shared with the entire world. Through these young Black and Brown women, Tarana found that we can only offer empathy to others if we first offer it to ourselves.

    Unbound is the story of an inimitable woman’s inner strength and perseverance, all in pursuit of bringing healing to her community and the world around her, but it is also a story of possibility, of empathy, of power, and of the leader we all have inside ourselves. In sharing her path toward healing and saying "me too", Tarana reaches out a hand to help us all on our own journeys.

    “Sometimes a single story can change the world. Unbound is one of those stories. Tarana’s words are a testimony to liberation and love.” (Brené Brown)

    "Burke's Unbound is worthy of being considered next to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings as one of those rare books that will unfold and welcome parts of us we thought we'd completely hid until the earth is gone. Unbound is the one we readers and writers have been waiting for." (Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy)

    "Tarana Burke is the most important voice of our generation and Unbound is an offering that will set free hearts, families, and communities. I will never stop being grateful for Tarana Burke’s wisdom and courage - and I will never stop thinking about this book." (Glennon Doyle, number one New York Times best-selling author of Untamed)

    Resilient

    This is a must read! We were taken on a journey of strength and perseverance in all phases of Tarana's life. I love the author's storytelling style, I felt like I knew her, being from the Bronx, I understood all parts of what she experienced. I'm glad to see that everyone finally gets to see the positive impact that she has been doing so silently, yet spoke volumes.

    Spectacular

    I was spellbound by this story, and finished the audiobook in 2 days. I loved hearing Tarana’s words spoken by her. It was powerful, moving, painful, and beautiful. One of the best pieces of written work I have read. I was on the verge of tears the entire book, I found myself responding out loud to the injustices, moments of shock, and the tenderness. When she was talking to her daughter about her abuse and her daughters abuse in particular that it wasnt their fault, they did nothing wrong I felt like tarana was speaking directly to little me and I bawled like never before. The shame that gripped my childhood was worse than my actual abuse. No one blamed me (when truth came out) but no one has ever said “you did nothing wrong” and I didnt realize how much I needed to hear that. Tarana you are a magical and gift writer, and an amazing human, with a warriors spirit. Thank you for sharing the deepest darkest parts of you, so others can release theirs into the light.
