Jameliah Young-Mitchell, a Charlotte, NC pastor and face of the popular Car Chronicles Movement, has penned “The Death of the Angry Black Woman” (2018, Warren Publishing) that discusses stereotypes faced by African-American women. The book was release last month at number-one on Amazon.com for New Releases in the Anger Management category.
Young-Mitchell writes that anger can get the best of many women, but when anger erupts into rage and leads to shouting, fighting, and name-calling, it’s time to look within and make a change. The Death of the Angry Black Woman boldly acknowledges stereotypes faced by women in the black community and uncovers the seeds that lead many to live anger-filled lives. Instilled with Biblical scripture and jaw-dropping honesty, this debut book from Young-Mitchell was written to help empower Black women to bury their anger, reject false labels, and embrace the new you.
"I wrote this book for all the women out there who are dealing with anger that they have yet to find the source of,” Young-Mitchell said. "Many women in the black community come from backgrounds of abuse, mistreatment, violence––and they become fighters. Through my book I hope to be that voice in their head, the one we all hear but rarely acknowledge, encouraging them to move on, let go of anger, reject hateful labels, embrace their powerful femininity, and live the life God intended them to live.”
Young-Mitchell is the daughter of the late Evangelist Violetta B. Young, and Pastor James I. Young, and grew up in Brooklyn, NY, as the youngest of four kids. She has preached across the United States and internationally and is the pastor of Unity Church Charlotte. Young-Mitchell is an experienced keynote speaker for women’s empowerment, teen and youth mentoring, corporate America, and relationships. She can be seen live on Facebook at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Young-Mitchell and her husband, Calvin W. Mitchell, have a daughter and son and reside in Charlotte, NC.
