Interruptions: Disrupting the Silence
Interruptions: Disrupting the Silence is the author’s very personal account of the “interruptions” in her life. “Rev. O” shares how she reinvented herself and emerged resilient in her struggle to overcome the murder of her son, her physical maladies, family traditions, cultural and societal stigmas, and racial and economic disparities about mental health. By laying bare her tragedies and triumphs, the author delves deeply into depression, gun violence, loss, suicidal ideation, marital conflict, employment challenges, struggle with faith, addiction, new familial relationships, and detachment from others. All are relevant life issues, often ignored in the African American community and magnified in this era of COVID-19.
Available in paperback only.

“Sister Odell has truly turned her pain into purpose. This is a story of hope arising from grief. It underscores the critical need for us as Black people to create a culture of emotional emancipation, healing, wellness, and empowerment in every community in which we live.”
