What a great book. This collection of works from all of these amazing, strong and influential women was so powerful and impactful. Letters, essays, poems, short stories, speeches from an inspirational collection of black women spanning generations covering everything from racism, sexualization, slavery and bondage, loss to love, sisterhood, hope, activism, belonging and discovery.

These are stories of experiences and are drenched in rich thought and action leaving the reader feeling as involved

I don’t think it’s possible to give a fair review to this book. It’s beyond amazing, even 5 starts feels short. The amount of hard working and love put into this pages is unexplainable. My recommendation: get the book and you will understand what I mean.
