A Space for People of Color, By People of Color. Be Cool.

Has Anyone Else Finished "The Sisters Are Alright"?

I read it on a car trip last weekend, and I really enjoyed it. It’s a quick read (123 pages, not counting notes), and I especially loved the Black women interviews. (Full disclosure: I was one of the interviewees and I think one of my comments made it into the book!) I appreciated that it gave just the right amount of background on historical stereotypes (like Mammy and Jezebel) without veering into 101/lecture mode. And, the book is sprinkled with facts about Black women and their accomplishments. I even recognized a few Salad Bowlers’ words. ;-)

Has anyone else read it? What did you think?
