   Nationally Acclaimed Author and Thought Leader Sophia A. Nelson to Release New
     Book Celebrating and Redefining Black Women in the Age of Michelle Obama
          Celebrity Guest Contributors include CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Roland S. Martin and actress
                                                Taraji Henson

   (Washington, DC – April 28) Sophia A. Nelson, a respected cultural and political thought leader and national
   columnist, is helping to celebrate and “redefine” black women in her new book, “Black Woman Redefined:
   Dispelling Myths and Discovering Fulfillment in the Age of Michelle Obama”
   (www.BlackWomanRedefined.com).

   In this groundbreaking book, set to be released May 31 st, Nelson uses proprietary national research (conducted
   with expert women’s pollster Kellyanne Conway of The Polling Company, Inc./Woman Trend) and real-life
   stories to reveal what drives and perpetuates common myths and misconceptions of black women. One of the
   book’s most topical questions Nelson addresses is, “Has Michelle Obama moved the ball for professional black
   women in a new and positive direction, or is there still work to be done here?”

   The release of the book comes at a time when the image of black women is being vastly misconstrued in print,
   online and on TV and radio. “How is it that an entire race of women—so successful, so beautiful, so intelligent,
   and so powerful—can be so devalued, vilified, neglected, unwanted, disliked, misused, increasingly
   misunderstood, and blatantly abused,” Nelson writes. The book includes extensive interviews with black men,
   inviting them to be active participants in the conversation about black women and black love. What better symbol
   of a positive black male/black female relationship than President Barack Obama and the First Lady, Nelson notes.

   Black Woman Redefined teaches black women how to redirect unsettling trends, such as high workplace stress,
   damaging stereotypes, emotional wellness problems, and challenging personal life options, to better achieve:
   Positive, multi-dimensional; relationships; Balanced and emotionally rewarding lives Good health and financial
   freedom; Spirituality that doesn’t reject their human sexuality; Satisfying, successful, and flexible careers.

   Black Woman Redefined is available at on and offline booksellers nationwide and through Perseus Distribution.
   Orders only, please call toll-free 1-800-343-4499 or email orderentry@perseusbooks.com.
