Overview

For Black Girls Who Feel Ebony and Essence Are Not Enough is provocative poetry by, for, and about the black woman.

For Black Girls Who Feel Ebony And Essence Are Not Enough is a stimulating collection of poetry covering one black girl's experience with sex, love, violence, racism, religion, keeping her head above water, and making a wave when she can in "Good Times" and bad. For Black Girls Who Feel Ebony and Essence Is Not Enough is a spiritual renaissance with balanced rage and peace with expressed warmth, love, anger and pain of the black female. This book tampers with the perception of black women as a giver and recipient of love.
