Evening Wine Down

An evening wine down in Downtown Orlando at Lake Eola Wine Co.

I enjoyed a nice March evening downtown and grabbed my next nonfiction read the month, For Brown Girls: With Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts by Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodriguez.

Lake Eola Wine company has a relaxing atmosphere and great charcuterie options for grazing while reading. I paired it with a crisp Salus Pinot Grigio. Check out my Instagram, Jess.N.Books, for more dining experiences.

Synopsis: For generations, Brown girls have had to push against powerful forces of sexism, racism, and classism, often feeling alone in the struggle. By founding Latina Rebels, Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez has created a community to help women fight together. In For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts, she offers wisdom and a liberating path forward for all women of color. She crafts powerful ways to address the challenges Brown girls face, from imposter syndrome to colorism. She empowers women to decolonize their worldview, and defy “universal” white narratives, by telling their own stories. Her book guides women of color toward a sense of pride and sisterhood and offers essential tools to energize a movement.
