Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic overachievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab. A preacher's kid, she'd grown up imagining God as a "thou shalt not" tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God's unconditional love for her--physical imperfections, moral failings, and all--that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people's lives. In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.

These poems I have written are exposing, raw, wounded and vulnerable. Every word is uncensored and was written for those who have believed that God doesn't like ugly. This was written under the covers for all the lovers, loners and stoners. It's the cry of every prisoner. It's for every chemically imbalanced patient who may have had a hard time being understood. God Loves Ugly is for those who have a hard time truly loving and being loved. It's for the fantasies you have yet to live; every dream you had to let go of and for every demon that secretly haunted you. It's for every cycle you had to break and every heart ache you could not fake. These hidden sometimes explicit words were written for you; God Loves You.

Discovering The Power of Ugly will cost you your pride. You will learn to take off your religious masks and stand naked before God. Ugly will liberate you from a false spirituality which pretends that being spiritual means that you stop being a real, flawed human being. Ugly is a celebration of the beauty of God's grace reflected through our weaknesses, not our strengths.

"A necessary read for every researcher, historian, scholar and hip-hop fan that seeks to better understand independent hip-hop and aspires to rebel and utilize hip-hop as a tool of resistance." -DJ Kuttin Kandi, DJ, Artist, Organizer, and Activist "Christopher Vito has written an informative and compelling book on independent hip hop that examines how complexities of race, gender, class and sexuality are confronted within the genre. This book illuminates a subculture that is rarely explored, shining a light on independent hip-hop's power to counter mainstream ideology." -Ninochka McTaggart, PhD, Senior Researcher, Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, USA Utilizing a mixed-methods approach, this book uncovers the historical trajectory of U.S. independent hip-hop in the post-golden era, seeking to understand its complex relationship to mainstream hip-hop culture and U.S. culture more generally. Christopher Vito analyzes the lyrics of indie hip-hop albums from 2000-2013 to uncover the dominant ideologies of independent artists regarding race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and social change. These analyses inform interviews with members of the indie hip-hop community to explore the meanings that they associate with the culture today, how technological and media changes impact the boundaries between independent and major, and whether and how this shapes their engagement with oppositional consciousness. Ultimately, this book aims to understand the complex and contradictory cultural politics of independent hip-hop in the contemporary age.
