    A great way to market!

    I love to read books about people like me and I love short stories...this book put both into one and introduced me to a variety of writers I didn't know about along with ones I already did. I ended up buying a couple more books because the short story was so interesting (ex. Douglass Women & Ain't nobody's business if I do). It's a very good source for writers to show off and I thoroughly enjoyed it and tried to roll with the WHOLE book page by page.

    Great Collection

    This is a marvelous book not just because of the stories in it but because of the vision behind it. It's a truly inclusive collection, giving a collage effect of a variety of African-American writing at this time. I didn't sweat that some prominent authors weren't there. Many were, but that's not even the point. It's a vibrant mix of what we're doing these days.
