Black Pearls

Black Pearls is a reboot of the 1950s housewife.

This 11 x 8.5 must have conversation-starter is a self-care guide that teaches you how to nurture yourself while taking care of everyone else.


Inside you will find,


  • how-to tips written by author/speaker/relational coach, Toya Poplar

  • dazzling snapshots by mom/actress/photographer, Naima Russell

  • creative direction, by author/chef/auntie, April Boddie

  • foreword written by Teaching & Performing Artist, Tia Smedley

  • behind the scenes social commentary 

  • inspiration to star in your own story

  • permission to star in your own story

  • inspiration to be the queen every man needs





 I could not get away from envisioning Black Pearls as a gift for a new wife-to-be at a bridal shower. I also imagined it being a conversation starter in premarital counseling or conferences and retreats among seasoned wives.
