Finally, Help For African Americans to Identify Unhealthy Elements in Relationships, Heal Old Wounds, Release the Pain, and Stop the Hurt

“How did I get here? Oh, that’s right. It was the road traveled so often by so many before. The road from strong, beautiful black man behind the walls through the gates of panic, self-doubt, fear, insecurity to full-blown identity crisis. I took that ride with you down that dark road. I should have asked the conductor to stop somewhere along the way and got off, but I kept holding on the poles of stabilization that were your letters, cards and promises.”

Nationwide — Above is a quote from the new book Hurt People Highway: Identifying Unhealthy Elements In Relationships by author Noreen McClendon. The book, available on Amazon, is designed to help people identify unhealthy elements in relationships, heal the wounds, release the pain and stop the hurt. It is a tool to understand the devastating affects of the United States’ addiction to mass incarceration on the relationships of formerly incarcerated and the women and men who love them.

“Noreen McClendon’s new book Hurt People Highway shines a powerful light on pain with a unique view of post-incarceration relationships. A must read for anyone contemplating a new relationship or living inside one riddled with challenge.” — Van Jones
