Changing the Broken Narrative of Black Women in America
The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti – black – woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. Tamara Winfrey Harris delves into marriage, motherhood, health, sexuality, beauty, and more, taking sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight – up truth about being a black woman in America. ”We have facets like diamonds, ” she writes. ”The trouble is the people who refuse to see us sparkling.’
This event will take place at Maleah Solange Books, located in Washington Square Mall located next to Burlington Coat Factory.
