In this loving, personal, and healing book, acclaimed activist and visionary Byllye Avery shows how the power of words can transform and enrich our lives.  An altar is a sacred place for reflection, self-examination, and renewal.  Altars provide a refuge, offering safety and solace while we explore the spirit within us.  An Altar of Words provides an opportunity to create a verbal sacred space.  In intimate meditations, Avery examines words such as Activism, Belonging, Courage, Love, Pride, Sisternomics, and Wisdom, and encourages each of us to strengthen our inner spirit, make changes, and be at peace.From the Hardcover edition.

Ms. Avery summarizes her life of social activism and advocacy through an emotional journey of words. What drives this work is a spiritual joining of her heart and lively intellect. She lights the way for others to sort out our own experiences in a world that does not honor feelings of truth. May she burn bright for many years to come.

I received this book as a gift from a mentor. Having read it for myself, I thought it would bring great value to my middle school students as a way for them to ponder the connections they make with the words and their own lives. The outcomes were beautiful. Not a cover-to-cover read, it's a book that I can read over and over again.
