The new season of Iyanla: Fix My Life returns to OWN, this Saturday. The legendary life coach sits down with eight women to tackle the myth of the angry black woman in a four part series. She also talks to Marie Holmes, the infamous North Carolina lottery winner that continued to bail her drug-dealing boyfriend out of jail.
On the debunking the myth of the angry black woman:
“The myth means it’s widely held but it’s basically false. We have now taken it on as our identity. We don’t have any more anger than the rest of women. It’s a way to diminish us and control us. It’s a way to silence our voice.”
