Porsha Williams Will Release A Memoir Next Year: I’m More Than A Headline, I’m A Strong Black Woman
Reality star Porsha Williams has grown through several life experiences since her season five “Real Housewives of Atlanta” debut in 2012. The 39-year-old is finally ready to document and share her life story in her first book, “The Pursuit of Porsha.” From her tumultuous marriage to former NFLer Kordell Stewart, to growing up with a civil rights leader for a grandfather, to finding love and motherhood with Dennis McKinley – Porsha Williams has laid it all out onscreen for “RHOA” fans. She will share how she overcame obstacles in her memoir. Porsha Williams said,
“Putting yourself out there in these times can be both a blessing and curse. I want to share the real me and my story here, including both my trials as well as my many blessings.”
“I am more than a soundbite or a headline or a rumor. I’m a strong Black woman who has triumphed over adversity and owned every single one of my mistakes. My story is a journey of passion, faith, and discovery.”
Porsha has been following in her grandfather, Hosea Williams‘, footsteps – spotted protesting in both the city of Atlanta and Lousiville, Kentucky with the Black Lives Matter movement. She was even arrested alongside VH1 star Yandy Smith at a protest for slain EMT worker Breonna Taylor recently. She commented on her efforts:
“It was devastating to feel like I was out there trying to stand with my people, stand with our allies, and help them raise a message of hope and to be silenced and not able to breathe because of the gas bomb that was thrown…Anybody who is out there now and they feel like they can’t move forward because of the mistreatment [by] the police and what they’re doing to us…I would say to them, stay focused on the cause.”
“The Pursuit of Porsha” is scheduled to be published in September of 2021.
