Abstract:
"Everyone seems to have an opinion about American black women--they need to get married, change their hair, act like 'ladies, ' and so on. Celebrated writer Tamara Winfrey Harris writes a searing account of being a black woman in America and explains why it's time for black women to speak for themselves."--Publisher information.
