Black Women For Beginners chronicles the trials
and triumphs of Black Women from antiquity to
the present, reflecting with wit and humor the
challenges they have faced and the fortitude and
strength that have sustained Black Women and
patterned history with a diversity of excellence.
As warriors, healers, teachers, mothers, queens,
and liberators Black Women have had tremendous
impact in society. Replete with a glossary of
reference terms, Black Women For Beginners
whimsically details the influence of stereotypes on
the portrayal of Black Women in various venues and
punctuates the absurd.
