Library Journal
This book celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Grammy Award-winning a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock. Starting out in 1973 at Howard University and singing in a wide range of styles from traditional gospel to songs of the Civil Rights struggle to original material, Sweet Honey in the Rock has lovingly explored every aspect of the African American musical experience. The group has maintained its vitality over the years by continuing to change its personnel, and the recollections of group members provide the book's format. While music is one constant of this story, freedom is another. The Civil Rights Movement, peace, and feminism have all received the support of Sweet Honey in the Rock's harmonizing. While this is not an essential purchase for many libraries, those with strong music and African American collections will definitely want to acquire.-- Dan Bogey, Clearfield Cty. P.L.
