Soulful words is a narrative of the encounters of racism 9 Black Students faced while in a higher educational institution. This book takes you on a journey, told through the eyes of the researcher and shares her experiences while researching how discrimination impacts the journey of Black and marginalized students in higher education. Throughout the book Ingram shares her experiences with her alter ego, Busara, who challenges her and supports her through the journey.
