The “Mega Diva” and legendary star of Black-ish looks back on her memorable journey to fame and the unforgettable life lessons she learned along the way.
Jenifer Lewis keeps it real in this provocative and touching memoir by a Midwestern girl with a dream whose journey from poverty to Hollywood will move, shock, and inspire listeners.
Told in the audacious voice her fans adore, Jenifer describes a road to fame made treacherous by dysfunction and undiagnosed mental illness, including a sex addiction. Yet, supported by loving friends and strengthened by “inner soldiers”, Jenifer never stopped entertaining and creating.
We watch as Jenifer develops icon status stemming from a series of legendary screen roles as the sassy yet loveable mama or auntie. And we watch as her emotional disturbances, culminating in a breakdown while filming The Temptations movie, launch her on a continuing search for answers, love, and healing.
Written with no-holds-barred honesty, this gripping memoir is filled with insights gained through a unique life that offers a universal message: “Love yourself so that love will not be a stranger when it comes.”
From her first taste of applause at five years old to landing on Broadway within 11 days of graduation and ultimately achieving success in movies, television, and global concert halls, Jenifer reveals her outrageous life story with lots of humor, a few regrets, and, most importantly, unbridled joy. Candid, warm, and wonderfully inspiring, The Mother of Black Hollywood intimately reveals the heart of a woman who lives life to the fullest.

At first opportunity, I bought the book first and read it cover to cover. Then I listened to the audio delivered in the sultry, charismatic, and demanding voice of Jenifer Lewis herself. MMM-MMM-MMM…it felt just the way I thought it would. A large Double Papasan Rattan Chair awaits her body as it lines up behind her. She gingerly wraps her loving arms around us as she lowers us down in the middle of her seat. She wraps her legs around our thighs, and we cradle our heads in the pit of her bosom…as she reads her life to us.
That's exactly how it feels, listening to Our Village Auntie read her story to us. I felt privileged given the opportunity to share in her life lessons. This book, this e-book, this Audiobook is incredible.
