Detailed Description

 
By Tamara Winfrey-Harris
 
The Sisters are Alright shows the obstacles black, mostly middle-class women encounter in life, the flak they receive (including from black men), and how they are thriving despite the odds.
 
This highly acclaimed book illuminates old stereotypes that continue to dog black women today:
  • servile, self-sacrificing Mammy
  • emasculating Sapphire
  • licentious Jezebel
  • the post-1960s image of the Matriarch, a baby-producing single mom on welfare
Winfrey-Harris also shows how negative perceptions cause African-American women to “hold their tongues,” “deny their sexuality,” and dislike their appearances. Yet, she reveals the extent to which black women are taking control of their lives and overcoming the race and gender biases so embedded in the culture surrounding them. She explores their lives, from marriage, the workplace, to sexuality.
 
For example, African-American women have the highest workforce participation rate among all American women. In 2013, 1.1 million owned their own businesses. Jamyla Bennu, an entrepreneur featured in the book, founded Oyin Handmade, a company aimed at showing black women how to take care of and celebrate their hair.
 
This is a powerful, relevant, uplifting book that should be read by everyone.
