Angel Kyodo Williams

Angel Kyodo Williams is an ordained Zen priest and the founder of the Urban Peace Project (an initiative associated with the international Peacemaker community) and the publisher of eDharma.com, a popular Buddhist on-line directory. A founding board member of Third Wave, she also cofounded with Rebecca Walker the first black-owned Internet cafe--for which she has been widely covered in such publications as The New York Times and Emerge.

Being Black

Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With
Fearlessness and Grace (review or buy)
is an elegant, practical book that combines the universal wisdom of Buddhism with an inspirational call for self-acceptance and community empowerment. Angel Kyodo Williams teaches how a "warrior spirit" of truth and responsibility can be developed into the foundation for real happiness and personal transformation. Being Black is an eloquent, hip fusion of Iyanla Vanzant and The Art of Happiness, written by a woman who grew up facing the challenges that confront African Americans every day.
