My Life Crossing the LineBook - 2017
In this moving collection of thought provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humour, Gabrille Union recounts personal and true stories about power, colour, gender, feminism, and fame. She tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards, and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska. Throughout, Union compels us to be ethical and empathetic, and reminds us of the importance of confidence, self-awareness, and the power of sharing truth, laughter, and support.
