A Black Girl with the Blues, a new book by Sarah Porter-Liddell, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Through a rough period of depression, author Sarah Porter-Liddell wrote and expressed all she felt within this collection on survival; she writes real and raw emotions that we don't often get to see from black women experiencing during depression. As her depression lifted, Liddell became more reflective on her past and in her current work, she aims to provide a deeper look into the mind of one Black woman on a journey through pain, love, and anger. She wants to encourage other women to look inside of themselves and find the courage to address their pain and focus on healing.
