Following up on the popularity of the groundbreaking anthology Embodied Spirits: Stories of Spiritual Directors of Color, this book continues the work of filling a void in the world of contemplative spirituality in stories of the contemplative spiritual journeys of people of color. Like the first book, Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around incorporates stories from members of their encounters with 'othering' and disparaging treatment across issues and their understandings of contemplative practice and the call to action that follows. This volume seeks to give voice to these issues from those whom have lived with them and to seek peace and healing for the unresolved trauma that continues to separate us. In a world or resurgent racism and bias against those whose skin color, nationality, religion, gender, or sexuality are seen as "other," these are voices that need to be heard.
