Staff Reviews

A masterpiece of an Anthology. This is a book that permanently belongs on everyone's bookshelf. Claudia Tate is an inspiration to me of what Black Women writers can do when we're brought together. Everyone from Audre Lorde to Nikki Giovanni to Ntozake Shange and so many more. I feel honored to have read this book and will revisit it every year. — Chardai
