About the Book
How can we heal in our communities and break the silence surrounding sexual abuse?

In this revised and expanded second edition of Hush Hush, DeShannon Bowens revisits her insightful interviews with the Peterson family. Bowens makes the strong case that intergenerational healing from sexual abuse cannot happen in Black communities without releasing shame based sexuality narratives from the past.

Through the intergenerational stories of the Petersons, we discover the importance of replacing myths about sexuality and abuse with accurate information. Bowens believes an empowered sexuality narrative and honest communication within families is a key component in preventing and ending child sexual abuse.

Hush Hush is a treasured and timely resource for anyone who cares about families, communities and making the world a safer more loving place.
