The vibrant humor of African American women is celebrated in this bold and unique collection that the Miami Herald describes as “breathtakingly broad and deep.”

In this “dazzling anthology” (Publishers Weekly), 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.

Nice variety I would recommend this book because you get a taste of so many different author’s styles of writing. From there you can seek out which ones you want to read more of. I read this a long time ago and the request to review just came up. Must be a new feature or its just late getting to me.A very nice read..great for public transportation.
