Finish this Sentence is about a personal experience in dealing with racism and healing from its effects.

Finish this Sentence is about a personal experience in dealing with racism and healing from its effects. As this book weaves through the anger and anxiety provoked by racism, it points to the ultimate realization: one is neither the conditioning nor the incessant chatter that racism can provoke. Rather, one is powerful and able to arrest those harmful thoughts. Awakening to these truths have helped Leslie to heal. She hopes that her work will be beneficial to others as well.

Born and raised in Montreal, Leslie is a lawyer who worked for the United Nations for 10 years. She is currently based in Ottawa, where she works for the Parliament of Canada.

"If you're Black and you've ever needed to hear, 'you're not crazy' while allowing yourself madness, if you've ever needed to be shown scars that mirror your own, there is space for you in Finish this Sentence." --Arc Poetry Magazine
