Your Secret Is Not Safe With Me
By Corrona Boston
With over twenty years of experience in the mental health field, Corrona Boston, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Art Therapist, realized that children are often unsupported due to others’ unprocessed pain related to intergenerational trauma. Providing trauma-informed treatment to several children inspired her to offer professional guidance on this unsettling topic. Corrona believes, “We are not only meant to tell our stories, but we are also meant to survive and heal from them.”
Your Secret is Not Safe with Me was collaboratively designed to help educators, parents, and others responsible for teaching sexual abuse prevention to children. This book is a tool to cultivate intentional and purposeful dialogue to dismantle self-blame and help parents and educators move towards healthy communication and forgiveness to effectively address uncomfortable situations, which is essential to achieving wholeness.
This family project includes the work of Corrona’s sister, Nikia Evans, and illustrations created by her nephew and nieces, Ronald Glass, Tristan Glass, and Zoey Anthony.

by Jaguar Wright & Charron Monaye
Jaguar Wright— mother, culinary queen, original member of the Okayplayer Collective, and Soul/R & B vocalist who has performed with the likes of: The Roots, Jay-Z, Al Green, Terri Lynne Carrington, and a host of others — candidly shares her story of the fame, fortune, setbacks, and success that she experienced as a recording artist.
They say, “life imitates art far more than art imitates life”; this could not be further from the truth for Jaguar Wright. Her new book project, The Woodshed, reveals how Jaguar’s personal and artistic journey intertwined with her struggles as an eclectic artist who could only seemingly thrive in her own creative space. Her story began on the streets of North Philadelphia, which shaped a series of life events leading her to sign a deal with MCA Records. Jaguar created and performed music that spoke to her extreme highs and lows. Her business struggles in tandem with her personal struggles with divorce forced Jaguar to pick up the pieces and learn how to create a new masterpiece without losing her creativity and the heartbeat of her artistry – her career as a vocalist. At the pinnacle of her struggles, Jaguar was subjected to incarceration as a consequence of protecting her child, but all in all – the tough battles gave Jaguar a new voice.
Combining her story with bold advice and fierce wordplay, Jaguar Wright teaches, motivates, and gives the real nitty-gritty truth about surviving as an artist while trying to be true to self.
