Candice Benbow,  a writer and educator,  who  has appeared on Huff Post Live and is a columnist with Urban Cusp Magazine has put together this phenomenal list of literature, fiction and non-fiction, poems, films, documentaries, music and much more that is filled with inspiration and encouragement for women everywhere. The Lemonade Syllabus, affectionately named so after Beyonce’s visual album serves as sort of a blueprint of how to turn life’s lemons into lemonade with works from Octavia Butler, Toni Morrison, J. California Cooper, Toni Morrison,Cupcake Brown, bell hooks, Lakisha Simmons, Iyanla Vanzant, Renita Weems, Jill Scott, Ntozake Shange,Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill…just to name a few.


How many times have you went through something and didn’t want to talk to anyone but would rather listen to music, or watch a movie, or read a book in order to cope? If you are anything like me, I’m always hiding behind my emotions and don’t like to share what I’m going through with the whole world. I find much more comfort in a good book than I do spilling my guts to my mama. So if you are anything like me…or you just need some encouragement…THIS IS FOR YOU!

There are so much good material filled in this syllabus, I’m telling yall, you better get in FORMATION and download this here body of work NOW!!
