Gabrielle Union publishes a second autobiography.
The 48-year-old actress, who published her memoir “We’ll Need More Wine” in 2017, has “more to say” and will be “You Got Anything Stronger?” in September 2021, with the tape intended to cover the “surrogacy journey” that led to the birth of her and husband Dwyane Wade’s daughter Kaavia, as well as “racist institutions and practices” she has encountered in her career.
She announced on Twitter: “Because I had more to say … My new book” Do you have anything stronger? “can now be pre-ordered under the link in bio.”
In her description of the book on her publisher’s list, she wrote: “A lot has changed in four years – I’ve become a mother and raise two amazing girls. My husband is retired.
“My career has expanded so that I have the opportunity to raise other voices that need to be heard. But the world has also shown us that we still have a lot to struggle – as women, as black women, as mothers, as aging women, as people, as friends.
“In ‘You Got Something Stronger?’ I’ll show you how this ever-changing life brings challenges, even if it gives me moments of pure joy. I’ll take you on a girls’ night at Chateau Marmont and also talk to Isis. My character from ‘Bring It On’.
“For the first time, I am really open to my surrogacy journey and the birth of Kaavia James Union Wade. And I am adopting racist institutions and practices in the entertainment industry and demanding equality and real accountability.”
Gabrielle has promised that this book will show her as the “most vulnerable” because she has finally found “true strength”.
She wrote: “This time I have to be more vulnerable – not so much to myself, but to anyone who feels alone in what they’re going through …
“‘Do you have anything stronger?’ I am most vulnerable. I recently found real strength in that vulnerability, and I want to share that strength with you here through this book. “
