Do Me Twice

Do Me Twice

My Life After Islam


From the highly acclaimed author of Little X: Growing Up in the Nation of Islam -- a taboo-breaking memoir about a Muslim girl who explores her freedom through the expression of her sensuality and sex, defying the cultural boundaries that denied her a full life.

Do Me Twice is the triumphant life story of the highly intelligent, courageous, and charismatic Sonsyrea Tate as she breaks the cultural and religious molds set in place by her upbringing. A former African-American Muslim, Tate has raised awareness for that community by bringing personal and enlightening answers to a curious audience.

Who are African-American Muslims? What do they stand for and why? How far-reaching are their lifestyle choices? With the global focus on terrorism and interest in the Islamic state, readers are hungry for answers that aren't influenced by government spin or newscast ratings. They will find those answers here.

Do Me Twice inspires young women while exploring Tate's conscious separation from Islam, her abusive husband, and the prejudices and stereotypes set on her by others' misconceptions.

Q. how did you come to write Do Me Twice?

A. Close family and friends challenged me to "tell it like it really was." They didn't mean for me to just spit all my most personal business into the wind - I realized too late. They were encouraging me to tell the truth beyond what has become politically correct information discussed about Islam, women in Islam, women leaving Islam. Muslims are first and foremost humans and that needed to be reflected in my story.
