’Black, Female & Successful’ – The Pain Behind The Glory
It is every woman’s dream to strive for success. For many black women the road to triumph can often be a long and tedious journey. For some successful black women their achievement is overshadowed by physical and emotional abuse.
Emunah La-Paz, author of “Say What? The Black Butterfly Series” touches on this secretive subject among many successful black women.
The title “Say What?” is the well known urban term on various occasions used by African-American women after learning surprising news. “The Black Butterfly Series” represents four financially successful women: Billy, a famous entertainer and her sister Mercedes Mitchell, a lucrative television anchor, both live a life of luxury, however behind closed doors both women are involved in manipulative and abusive relationships. Their dysfunctional affairs spill over into the lives of their daughters, Jericho and Amour who struggle to break this cycle of abuse.
True to form abusive relationships affect many women, ranging from all backgrounds and status.
According to the Science Daily poll taken over a year ago, 1.9 million women in the United States experience physical assault.
Successful black entertainers such as Halle Berry, Tina Turner, Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole, reality T.V. Star Ne Ne Leakes, just to name a few, have been vocal about the cycle of abuse in which they have endured. Their admission has been an inspiration to all women seeking to escape their abusive relationships.
“Most likely this form of abusive interaction is displayed in front of many black women and men at an early age. Many black women feel that this behavior is normal. They simple don’t believe that they are capable of finding a relationship that holds peace. Dysfunction has been passed down from generation to generation. Breaking this cycle of abuse is an intervention within itself. Women, who lack in income, feel that they have nowhere else to go. And some have deceived themselves into believing that a relationship built on abuse, is better than no relationship at all.” States author Emunah La-Paz.
Author Emunah La-Paz’s four part book trailer is now featured on IMDb. As well as Amazon.com. La-Paz is also working on the nonfiction release “Why Do Married Men Cheat With Unattractive Women?” This release date has been pushed back until June of 2011.
