March 15, 2021 Richmond, VA—In “Black Family Lies”, author Charmaine “Tigria” Carter writes about her dysfunctional family and the pain she suffered at their hands. Her book describes the chilling details of her childhood rape and the traumatic impact that it had on the rest of her life.
The author is a single black woman and mother of one who lives in Virginia’s capital city. As Ms. Carter recounts this true horror story, she doesn’t pull any punches. She talks candidly and openly about many disturbing aspects of her life.
After the author introduces her readers to her dysfunctional black southern family, the author tells us about being raped by her babysitter at the age of six. Additional stories spill from the pages describing the harrowing events in her life and how she endured each of them. What kind of tragedies did this southern girl suffer? Plenty. She was molested by family members, and then physically, emotionally, and sexually abused for a large part of her childhood. As a result of growing up in that type of environment, she naturally developed problems of her own. She became depressed, sexually promiscuous, and suicidal. She became entangled in one bad relationship after another.
As an adult, matters got worse as she tried to hide from the internal pain. She went from being a sex addict to a drug addict. After losing her job, apartment, car, son, and her sanity to drugs, she hit rock bottom and sought help. Learn how she found God in rehab and discovered a twelve-step program to help stop her addictive behavior. Travel with her as she finds out about the secrets and the lies that her family had been keeping for years.
How can she heal herself without revealing the truth about her family? How can she forgive her family? What are the lies her family has been telling her? This book answers all of these questions in a very down to earth manner. The book is a must read for anyone that has been exposed to abuse in any of its forms. It will help you to see that you are not alone, and that you can triumph over adversity.
