Atlanta, Ga. – Dec. 18, 2020 — Thirteen women reveal the hidden stories behind their smiles in a new anthology called, Beyond the Smile, released on Thanksgiving Day 2020 with a virtual launch event that took place on Cyber Monday, November 30th.
Beyond the Smile contains 13 powerful stories of African American women who have beaten the odds and have now incredibly rich insights to share that will empower others during COVID-19 and other major life challenges. This is the second book compilation commissioned by Minister, Author & Film Producer, Chris Scott. Scott envisioned the book to show the depth of the stories and experiences that women hold often with a lot of loss, tragedy, pain and silence behind their smile. “These women are exceptional in every way, says Scott, their stories are extraordinary, and the message of this book comes at a time when people need hope when there is so much uncertainty all around. One thing these women know is how to survive and thrive in the midst of adversity.” The book offers a space for these women to speak their truths and remove the shame of silence.
