After being teased about being a “skinny black girl”, Whitney Barkley decided to take her four-eyes and slim behind to the World Wide Web to express herself. Through her blog, she has helped women overcome obstacles imposed by self-doubt, low self-esteem, and societal constructs. The Skinny Black Girl’s Guide to Freedom discusses how she conquered colorism, sexual assault, toxic relationships, abortion, and depression to live confident and abundant life.
