Black History Month Audio Community Project - Jessica Huie honours Toni Morrison
Jess Huie honours the gift that is Toni Morrison.
Jessica honours Toni Morrison’s unapologetic boldness and her ability to capture audiences with her raw storytelling and poetic prose. Jessica focuses on Toni Morrison’s first novel, The Bluest Eye where she deals with the issue of colourism and the painful quest to live up to Eurocentric ideals.
Jessica speaks to the complexity of unchallenged intergenerational beliefs and the freedom that is bestowed upon those that choose to live in their truth.
About Jessica Huie:
Jessica Huie MBE is an entrepreneur and the Author of Bestseller PURPOSE published by Hay House, Find your truth and embrace your calling. Jessica enjoyed a glittering career as a journalist and publicist and has worked with some of the world’s biggest stars and business people, including Samuel L. Jackson, Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland & Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. Jessica founded and ran influential boutique agency JHPR.co.uk for ten years.
In 2016, when Jessica’s father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, for the first time in her life she stopped doing and became present. Her first book, PURPOSE, and transformation evolved from the profound space between life and death in which she found herself as a carer for her beloved father.
In Purpose, Jessica invites us to reconnect with who we are beneath the layers of roles, titles and belief systems. Our experiences and social conditioning determine the narratives we hold about ourselves and our lives, and in an era where so many of us define our identity by the title on our business card, Jessica promises that “stripped back is where we meet ourselves.”
