    I was a little disappointed

    The book was okay. While it presented a lot of truthful information on the limited amount of sex education a majority of african-americen woman receive. The book was very redundant of that fact. The focus was primarily on the exploitation of the african-american woman past and present due to this lack of info. However, I don't feel that the book fairly represented all african-american women. Possibly the author should have surveyed more women.
