Summary

Black women from all walks of life talk openly, honestly--and often for the first time--about their most intimate concerns, feelings, and situations. "Soul of My Sisters" is arranged thematically: from abortion to AIDS to date rape, love, sex, and money, this landmark anthology touches every aspect of the black female experience.
