The reviews have been coming in steady. Every other day I get a post on Facebook telling me that my book was great, this was one I had waiting on me when I woke up this morning.
I just finished your book tonight. It's taken me a while to get through it because life has gotten in the way, but it was worth that time and more. I think that my friends are tired of hearing me talk about it, especially the chapters about what women (people) will do to keep a man (partner) because so many of us have been there, and still put ourselves there. It has opened up so much conversation. I sincerely hope that you get to publish your memoir soon, because I would love to buy a copy for the AIDS project that I volunteer at. THANK YOU for being HONEST, straightforward, and an inspiration across the boundaries of race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. There is not a single person in this country that couldn't learn something from you
My long time friend Keith is proud of me and I'm proud of me. I didn't think I had it in me, but I did! I know now that I can rewrite my memoir and I plan to do just that. Just watch me; early 2013 release!
But in the meantime, The Politics of Respectability is a great read. I focus on this idea of respectability among black women, how it developed in the late 19th century and its influence on our lives and organizations, and ultimately its impact on me from childhood to now. I answer the questions, what kind of woman and I? Am I Christian Enough? Respectable Enough? I tackle head on the Politics around Respectability.
