-– Just In Time For Women’s International Day Celebrations —
London, UK (BlackNews.com) – Mother of four, Angela Lee Rahman, launches her first book, Finally In Love With Myself, in support of victims and survivors of abuse at the start of commemorations for Women’s International Day. The launch hosted by former EastEnders actress, Judith Jacob will be held on Saturday 7th March, between 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the Black Cultural Archives, Windrush Square, Brixton SW2 1EF (in England).
“Traditionally, the focus has been on physical abuse, it has only been since last year that the Government with its amendments to the Health and Social Care Act 1985, has recognized other forms of abuse in order to ensure that victims have the necessary support to protect themselves,” said first time author, Angela Lee.
The event will be empowered by women authors and inspirational speakers and held at the newly opened Black Cultural Archives, that provides historical cultural heritage of Black people in Britain.
Here’s what others are saying:
“A book powered by determination and rewarded with success. Many congratulations,” said Dawn Hill, Chair Black Cultural Archives.
“Women empowering women. We hold the key to our happiness and these books help those women who cannot see the light to unlock the door. Let’s use them,” said host and actress, Judith Jacob.

“It is absolutely possible to break those negative and abusive cycles that keeps reoccurring in your life. But it just takes courage and the willingness to learn how to create self-love to combat fear,” said Malakh Zebulun, author, “No More Secrets”.
