"Courage" is a thought-providing and inspiring self-help memoir. Drawing on the life experiences of Meagan O'Nan, a gay woman from the Deep South, this book is a raw and poignant commentary on discrimination, both personal and societal, and how it is replayed in endless cycles.
A new voice to an age-old perspective, "Courage" is not your typical victim/victor story. Central to its message is the provocative and compelling idea that "agreeing to disagree is not enough" - that this "solution" leads either to silence or violence, neither of which ultimately solves anything. O'Nan challenges the reader to dig deep into their own life and offers simple and practical ways to break the cycles of discrimination - by calling on the deeper wisdom and ability that lie within each of us to transform our own pain into love.
