Honey, Hush!

Honey, Hush!

Daryl Cumber Dance has collected the often hard-hitting, sometimes risqué, always dramatic humor that arises from the depth of black women’s souls and the breadth of their lives. The eloquent wit and laughter of African American women are presented here in all their written and spoken manifestations: autobiographies, novels, essays, poems, speeches, comic routines, proverbial sayings, cartoons, mimeographed sheets, and folk tales. The chapters proceed thematically, covering the church, love, civil rights, motherly advice, and much more.

Grand Mothers

Nikki Giovanni created this book by asking her friends–people like Gloria Naylor, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Maxine Hong Kingston–for their stories and recollections of their grandmothers, then asked a group of writers in their nineties for their thoughts. Grand Mothers celebrates those special women in every culture who preserve heritage and prepare the future.
