Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around: Stories of Contemplation and Justice

192 pages2 hours


• Second volume from Spiritual Directors of Color Network
• Addresses the contemporary issues of racism and contemplation

Following up on the popularity of the groundbreaking anthology Embodied Spirits:
Stories of Spiritual Directors of Color, published by Morehouse in March 2014,
this new book continues the work of filling a void in the world of contemplative
spirituality in stories of the contemplative spiritual journeys of people of color. Like
the first book, Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around incorporates stories from
members “of their encounters with ‘othering’ and disparaging treatment across
issues and their understandings of contemplative practice and the call to action
that follows. This volume seeks to give voice to these issues from those whom
have lived with them and to seek peace and healing for the unresolved trauma
that continues to separate us.” In a world or resurgent racism and bias against
those whose skin color, nationality, religion, gender, or sexuality are seen as
“other,” these are voices that need to be heard.
