“Domestic Violence does not discriminate based on socio-economic or other demographics we are all affected. I am proud to have Angelica Harris as part of GingerNewYork's author series because she has something important to say about a topic many do not want to acknowledge exists. Many suffer and die at the hands of the very people that are supposed to love them. Domestic Violence is not love, it is people suffering and dying for love” Ginger Broderick, Host/Executive Producer, GingerNewYork.

About Angelica Harris:
Angelica Harris is a successful author, entrepreneur, advocate and speaker. Her journey to disempower her rage began in 2010 with the writing of her memoir, Living With Rage: A Quest for Solace. She is now using her story to build a community of conquerors that will fight domestic violence and help others—and one another—find healing.

Angelica Harris helps shine the light on domestic violence with new memoir:
“Sharing my personal experiences with domestic violence has unleashed my voice so that I might help others dealing with similar circumstances,”
As a teenager in Queens in the 1970s, Harris bore two secrets: the beatings of a mother swiftly descending into mental illness, and her uncle’s yearlong sexual abuse. The burden of silence continued as she later hid her rape and abortion. Harris sought relief through literature, theater and hard work, but she couldn’t eradicate her rage or sense of injustice. In Living With Rage, Harris candidly tells the story of a life haunted by violence but that also shimmers with all the complexities of love.
“Writing this book was not easy,” Harris said. “There were times I closed my laptop, went for a walk, and thought, ‘I can’t do this.’ But writing is healing. Telling our stories is healing. That’s the message I want to get across.”
Harris hopes to utilize this platform to help others. Her extensive work over the past five years with her nonprofit, the Excalibur Reading Room is changing directions as The Unicorn Project-Raven’
“I have seen so many people—including myself—rebuild their lives after taking a stand against their abuser or confronting their addictions” said Harris. “I hope that as we come together to spread awareness of domestic violence, individuals will realize that there are resources out there for them. I hope my story can help to serve as a beacon of light for others.”
