Pearl Cleage teaches playwrighting at Spelman College. She is also a cofounder of the literary magazine ""Catalyst"" and writes a column for the ""Atlanta Tribune.""From Library Journal:
This magnificent and totally original book highlights the emotional battles that blacks will recognize from their own lives in a racist society. As she offers glimpses in her stories of her personal experiences, like her family's migration from south to north, she sends the message that unless you have self-knowledge others can make you become what they desire you to be. She also reminds us that a person without a past is a person without an identity. The richness of this black writer's prose weaves a delicate thread throughout this appealing collection, which will acquaint its readers not only with life's everyday dilemmas but with distinct experiences within the black community itself. Rec ommended.
