share close

We’re continuing our book club series with another conversation with the very first Balanced Black Girl guest, Chrissy King.

In celebration of Chrissy’s new book The Body Liberation Project, we have an honest, vulnerable conversation about what body liberation is and how we can work towards it individually and collectively. We also talk about reading and writing as an act of self care.

Chrissy King is a writer, speaker, former strength coach, and educator with a passion for creating a diverse and inclusive wellness industry. She empowers individuals to stop shrinking, start taking up space, and use their energy to create their specific magic in the world.

We Also Talk About…

  • What diet culture is and what it entails
  • How food is for pleasure, not just fuel
  • The myth that Black women and girls don’t struggle with body image
  • The intersection of racism and diet culture
  • The difference between body liberation and body positivity
  • Reading and writing as an act of self care
