About the Author

"Chichi Agorom's voice is a part of the reckoning that has been needed in the culture of the Enneagram. Writing with clarity and heart, she describes the map of the Enneagram and the armor that marginalized identities have depended on to survive in a culture of white supremacy and patriarchy. This is simply a great book on the Enneagram and an offering to our collective liberation." --Renée Rosario, MA, LPC, Core Faculty member of the Narrative Enneagram

"Chichi Agorom is inviting us to center Black women's wholeness in order to define and find "true" liberation that sees us all. She proves, through beautiful storytelling and masterful teaching, that when black women are free we all will be free. This book is pure womanist ethic at work." --EbonyJanice Moore, Hip Hop Womanist Scholar & Founder of Black Girl Mixtape

"This is the most important Enneagram book I have ever read. While this book was written specifically to further the cause of Black liberation, it should be in the hands of every Enneagram enthusiast. By highlighting how our place in society, inherent privilege, and unearned power affect our ability to lay down the armor of our type, Chichi has made the Enneagram and the deep, healing work it invites us into something truly accessible and useful to everyone." --Abi Robins, Author of The Conscious Enneagram

"Chichi Agorom's The Enneagram For Black Liberation reclaims seemingly lost identity, reimagines what is possible for Black Bodies, and decolonizes concepts and spaces that refuse to center our experiences. I will be using and recommending this powerful tool of love and liberation throughout my lifetime." --Thea Monyée, EcoWomanist, Oya Priestess, and Creative Healer

"In this book, Chichi Agorom answers the commodified, memeified self-help version of Enneagram with an invitation to become free of entrenched survival patterns, more connected to self and others, and ultimately more whole using this spiritual-emotional tool that can help us truly awaken to who we are meant to be. By centering the experience of Black women, she offers us a path for understanding the Enneagram as a tool for collective liberation." --Micky ScottBey Jones, The Justice Doula, founder of Enneagram for the People, Certified Enneagram Teacher and Coach

"The Enneagram for Black Liberation is a beautiful embrace of the Enneagram system as a tool for freedom and transformation, as well as a powerful critique of ways the Enneagram has been taught through the singular lens of dominant culture, which has limited greater liberation for those with marginalized identities." --Rev. Dr. Christopher T. Copeland, spiritual director and core faculty member of The Narrative Enneagram
