There are no words to express how I feel about this book. I feel very inspired. This book is a neccessity for all African Americans, female and male. If we are informed we will understand. Get informed!!!

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.
